Sanwo-Olu made the announcement at a one-day interactive session between the governor, students’ union leaders, and stakeholders tagged “Students as Strategic Partners in the Governance Process: Challenges and Prospects for Youth Development” on Tuesday in Ikeja.

The governor also appointed four former leaders of the Student Union Government in Lagos tertiary institutions as special advisers.

The appointees are Eniola Opeyemi, Kayode Samuel, Giwa Moor, and Adeola Adewunmi.

This appointment followed a request by the Lagos Chairman of the National Association of Nigerian Students, Lekan Alimi, that the students union should have representatives in government to interface between the government and the students.

While reacting to the request, the governor said, “They are important stakeholders in the governance of Lagos State,” urging them to believe in themselves.
