Sanwo-Olu Inaugurates Leadership Fellowship In Honour Of Lateef Jakande

The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has inaugurated a new leadership fellowship named after a former governor of the state, Lateef Jakande, on Tuesday.




Sanwo-Olu, who shared photos from the inauguration of the first class of the Lateef Jakande Leadership and Fellowship Academy said that, “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.”
