Considering opportunities for its members and maximizing their potential and leadership skills already acquired through the Get Involved Leadership Training (GILT) held in the state in 2020, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, the incoming governor of Osun State, has expressed a willingness to work with the structure of the Lead Generation Initiative (LGI) in the state.
During a visit to Senator Adeleke’s country house in Ede, Osun State, yesterday, a delegation from the LGI led by the organization’s founder, Honourable Shina Peller, informed him of this.
Senator Adeleke praised Hon. Peller, the founder of the NGO, for the initiative and for using his personal funds to train youth across the nation, and he pledged to accept and welcome contributions from LGI members in the future.
In his remarks, Honourable Shina Peller, who presently represents Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency at the House of Representatives, congratulated the governor-elect on his election victory and handed over the structure of the LGI in the state to him.
It would be recalled that Lead Generation Initiative, a non-governmental, non-partisan and non-profit organization, has, through its Get Involved Leadership Training (GILT), successfully trained thousands of youths across the country on effective leadership, governance, strategic communication, civic responsibility and citizenship.
The first edition of GILT was held in Ibadan, Oyo State from 3rd September to 6th September, 2020 while the second took place in Osogbo, Osun State from 6th to 9th, October 2020. Thousands of youths from Bauchi, Gombe, Kwara, Niger, Adamawa, Taraba, Yobe and Borno states are also beneficiaries of GILT.
