She said the programme will not only focus on empowerment but also look into the areas of imparting social values in children and youth as a guideline for achieving widespread civic engagement through planned programmes of action.

“We aim at building a people-centred Lagos by adopting a variety of engaging activities as a channel to inspire individuals to be active participants in the process of nation-building.

“Engaging citizens remains our ultimate goal. We can only improve Lagos through our collective effort,” she noted.

“Beneficiaries of the social welfare inclusive initiative would be encouraged to invest 50% of the grant received in a small-scale business.

“The office of civic engagement has partnered with some companies to assist our citizens in actualizing these goals by planning and monitoring the growth of their small-scale business.” Princess Adebowale added.
