The Special Adviser Office of Civic Engagement, Princess Aderemi Adebowale, received a group of Civil Society Organizations in her Alausa Secretariat Office, Ikeja.

The Special Adviser while briefing the group enumerated the numerous socio-economic programmes of the State Government aimed at achieving “A Greater Lagos”.

She stated that the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda of the state government has been the driving force for the development activities of the Sanwo-Olu led administration and as such it is imperative to bring the development pillars to the public domain through robust engagement of the people particularly the Civil Society Groups and the grassroots so that the citizenry can fully understand and support the programmes and policies that would drive the various social-economic spectrum of the state.
