Kakalistiq.com reports that Ambassador Saheed Rahmon, the former Epe Divisional Team Lead of Lagos State Youth Ambassadors, in a bid to harness the power of youth participation, inclusion, and accountability in grassroots governance, is set to host an electrifying online discussion.
In an era where the internet has revolutionized information sharing, the convener has partnered with the esteemed Concerned Nation Builders Initiative, a prominent Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), and the fast-rising Epe-based media outlet, Kakalistiq Media, to bring together Chief Press Secretaries (CPS’) from the five Local Government and Local Council Development Authorities (LCDAs) comprising the Epe Division.
This transformative event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 10, 2023, at 8 p.m. on the dynamic platform of Twitter Space.
According to reports, Saheed Rahmon will lead the discussion, which will be a robust one. While
Elemoro Noheem will represent Lekki LCDA, Jubril Idris (Epe City Jnr) will represent Eredo LCDA, and Yusuf Olawale (Prof) will represent Epe LG. Areh Abdulhamid and Akadiri Ayorinde will represent Ikosi-Ejinrin LCDA and Ibeju-Lekki LG, respectively.
Set against the backdrop of the ever-popular Twitter Space, this initiative aims to empower the youth and contribute to the progress of grassroots communities by fostering informed discussions. The program, aptly titled “The Journey So Far: Exploring The Developmental Progress Across The 5 Divisions,” will delve into the intricate tapestry of development, challenges faced by local communities, and collaborative solutions.
Ambassador Saheed Rahmon, the driving force behind this visionary initiative, emphasized that community development is a collective endeavor, and leaders cannot shoulder the responsibility alone. He underscored the importance of accountability and stressed that it’s imperative for the youth to actively support their leaders in ensuring efficient governance.
In his own words, Ambassador Saheed Rahmon explained the essence of “The Journey So Far”: “‘The Journey So Far’ is an online discussion featuring spokespersons from the five council chairmen across the Epe division. The discussion aims to explore the developmental progress occurring in each of these LGAs and LCDAs under the leadership of their respective chairmen”
“We will also address the importance of youth inclusion in leadership and discuss the grievances of young people towards these administrations. We will brainstorm solutions to ensure a paradigm shift in youth development and societal progress.”
