The Lagos Status Governance Builders Independent Group (LASGOBIG) has invited Lagos State Ministries and Agencies to showcase and present various youth-focus initiatives undertaken in the year 2021 at the EKO YOUTH EAGLE SUMMIT which is slated for 16th, December 2021 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Ikeja.
Speaking with the convener, Mr. Emmanuel Amuwo, he described the summit as an initiative with the mandate of creating a synergy between the government and the Youth, for the sole purpose of restoring public trust, promoting good governance, and also using the platform to create youth relevance in societal development.
Trust in government has deteriorated and our objective is to restore public trust which is very essential towards the growth and development of a state. LASGOBIG “EYE Summit”, first of its kind in Lagos State and Nigeria will foster accountability and create public trust which is very vital in policy implementation
The theme for the EYE summit is tagged ” Soar in a new world reality by Maximizing Youth Potentials” serve as a build-up to the Governance Performance Evaluation that was held by LASGOBIG on the 25th June for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, an initiative that evaluated the work undertaken by the governor in last two years.
Although the agitation of the youth is mostly concerned with years of the poor state of the economy, however, there is a need to focus more attention on the leadership capability and competence that exist in our present-day, where there is no standard to measure the performances of elected public officeholders.
Discussing the way forward, Mr. Amuwo implores the ministries, agencies, and government parastatals as a whole to see this initiative as a way of pacifying the angry youth who have no single trust in anything that is government-related.
According to the Group Managing Director of Ashton & Layton in the person of Mr Gbenga Adebija who is also a member of the LASGOBIG board of advisers, he noted that the importance of LASGOBIG is to create a platform to address the major problem that brings about a gap in governance which has a negative influence on human behavioural response to Public policies
The event which is strictly by invitation is scheduled to hold on 16th December 2021 at the Radisson Blu hotel, GRA Ikeja Lagos by 10 am.
There will be a live streaming for the general public to join on Facebook @theeyesummit or @Lasgobig.
