Hon. Mobolaji Ogunlende (RAK), the Special Adviser to the Governor of Lagos State on Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Relations, inaugurated the LOUD’ Sanwo-Olu ICT/Skill Acquisition Centre in Surulere on Thursday, 25th May, 2023.
The establishment of the center is part of the Lagos of Our Dreams project (Project LOUD), which gained prominence for its contributions to the re-election campaign of Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu in the 2023 Governorship elections in Lagos State.
Having played a significant role in the initiative since its inception, Ogunlende was delighted to witness this remarkable accomplishment and was honored to inaugurate the project as the Governor’s representative at the event.

Regarding the potential impact of the project, Ogunlende emphasized the importance of initiatives like Project LOUD in equipping and empowering the youth to thrive and succeed in today’s rapidly changing world. By arming them with relevant skills and knowledge, they can become self-reliant and valuable contributors to society.

In conclusion, Ogunlende expressed his pride in being part of the initiative and witnessing firsthand the positive impact it has on the lives of the youth in Lagos.
