36 Participants Qualify For The Lateef Jakande Leadership and Fellowship Academy

After receiving over 3,000 applications

across the country, for the Lateef Jakande Leadership and Fellowship Academy, 36 participants emerged after going through a rigorous screening process.

When our administration thought about setting up the Academy, we said to ourselves that we didn't want to name another street or estate after the late Jakande, because his

name has had a lot of that.

We thought about establishing an institution that will sustain and project the values for which he was known. The Leadership Academy was initiated with the objective to train and nurture young leaders with right values and

leadership skills to build institutions across sectors and make lasting impact on the society

This project for me, is part of my donation and legacy to give back, not just to Lagos, but the entire country. The worth of a leader is not just being a leader, but how many future leaders

he can raise.

We seek to raise young leaders that will take up the baton of leadership, and the only way we can do that is to be intentional and deliberate in scouting for brilliant young people who are best in their own areas.

— Governor Sanwo-Olu
