The Lagos State Government has expressed its plans to include more competent youths in leadership positions and governance of the state.

Mr Olusegun Dawodu, the state Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, made this known in a statement made available on Wednesday, during an event organised by the 2021/22 Lagos Youth Ambassadors in Alausa, Ikeja.

He said: “The door of the ministry is always open to the youths because we have the mandate to ensure their socioeconomic needs are catered for. We plan to include more competent youths in leadership positions and governance of the state.

“This is in tandem with the promise of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to give more space to the youths as part of his policy of inclusion and catch those young for leadership positions.”

On her part, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mrs Toyin Oke-Osanyintolu, mentioned that the Ibile Youth Academy, a youth-oriented programme of the ministry, was established by the state government to prepare youths for leadership and inculcate in them the virtues of citizenship and patriotism.
