leadership and fellowship academy to unleash the potential of the next generation leaders

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has announced the launch of Lateef Jakande Leadership Academy, a leadership and mentorship programme of the State Government, with the vision to develop tomorrow leaders today for public service and Governance in Africa by equipping them with the requisite skills to influence the public service and instilling the ethics and values of purposeful leadership through direct mentoring and on-the-job training. Governor Sanwo-Olu disclosed this during the commemoration of Worker’s Day.

The one-year non-partisan and meritocratic fellowship will offer first-hand experience in the process of governance at State Government level and offer bright young Nigerians the chance to support Nigeria’s recovery through inclusive, sustainable and development solutions. Fellows will form a shadow cabinet, closely working with Executive Cabinet members and support in developing and executing policies and programs with real life impact.

Speaking on the initiative, Babajide Sanwo-Olu said: “Effective leadership significantly contributes to the development of the society, organisation, individuals, and groups in the public and private sector. To continue to build our nation, we need to invest in developing leadership skills especially amongst young people. With nearly 50% percent of the Nigeria population being talented youth, we believe it’s very important. We launched the Lateef Jakande Leadership Academy, to develop future leaders by equipping them with the pre-requisite skills that would assist them in transitioning into the public sector.

Leadership is crucial at all levels within the society. Our goal is to provide a platform that will provide invaluable exposure, purposeful leadership preparation that will positively impact our youth to cultivate a shared vision that will lead to active citizenship and nation building. At Lagos State, we are building leaders today for a greater tomorrow!”
