“In line with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s plans to groom more talented youths in all parts of the state, the ministry has designed a platform for the talent hunt participants to leverage on and be involved in the activities of the state through the ministry.”
The Chairman of Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Fatai Oluwa, commended the talent hunt winners, adding that the state government has already given them leverage to succeed in the creative sector.
