…Gov Unveils Strategic Program To Support Voluntary Youth Organizations
Commissioner of Lagos State Scout Council, Chief Jonathan Tawose on Wednesday conferred the State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode as the Patron of Lagos State Council of Scout Association of Nigeria, saying the decision was based on his leadership qualities and being a good role model for the Nigerian youths.
Tawose, who spoke at the investiture of the Governor as Patron of the Scout Council, held at Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja, said the Scout Association, as a non-religious and non-political international organization, has the vision to build the youths of today into responsible leaders of tomorrow, adding that it was gratifying to note that Governor Ambode’s activities align with the vision to give better tomorrow for young ones.
“We are aware of the Governor’s hardwork, dedication and above all total devotion to the emancipation of mankind.
The Governor is a model to Nigerian youths with his show of exemplary leadership qualities.
Responding to the kind gesture and new honour bestowed on him, the obviously elated governor and new patron thanked the Boys Scout Organization for identifying with him, moreso the good works of his administration since he assumed the office of the executive governor of the state.
While obviously referring to the current rift between him and his political godfather regarding his 2019 reelection ambition, the governor added that “Lagos belongs to the people not some individuals. With or without APC, only the people can decide my fate. I’m not moved”.
