Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial district, Senator Tokunbo Abiru has said he is committed to improving the skills of the youth to be relevant in the job and entrepreneurship spaces.
In partnership with Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) and innovation hub space, the Senator said he would be setting up a Community Innovation Centre in the district.
“This concept will leverage social capital and technology in accelerating economic prosperity for our teeming youth population. It will be up and running in a few months from now,” he said at an occasion to award N30 million scholarships to 600 students in the district.
“Next month, we will in partnership with Fate Foundation, train 1,000 Micro, Small and Medium-scale business owners at an MSME Clinic.”
