Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has said that his administration is determined to improve the State’s educational system in order to meet the challenges of basic and quality education.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the Union Bank Education Fair tagged “Edu 360” at Harbour Point, Victoria Island, Ambode gave an insight into entrepreneurial training provided by the State through the ‘Ready.Set.Work’ project and ‘CodeLagos’ initiatives.

The Governor, represented by the Special Adviser on Education, Mr. Obafela Bank-Olemoh at the event, stated that the initiatives were embarked upon to deliberately place Lagos State at a vantage position by meaningfully engaging the youths and developing graduates into business creators through the teaching of entrepreneurial skills.
