The Lagos State Agency for Mass Literacy has embarked on an advocacy campaign towards promoting mass literacy and vocational skills among residents of Epe community.
An Assistant Director in the Agency, Mrs. Olaide Oladunjoye, stated that in line with its mandate and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s T.H.E.M.E.S development agenda on Education and Technology, the Office embarked on the exercise to educate the masses about the learning opportunities available for youths and adults in Epe and environs.
She added that the Agency intends to ensure that both young and old residents of the State have the opportunity to acquire vocational skills that will enable them to become self-reliant and contribute meaningfully to the economic development of the society.
Oladunjoye explained that the Office is determined to achieve the set goals and objectives of the mass literacy programme of the State government through enlightenment of the citizens, adding that the sensitisation programme will create awareness among the good people of Epe on the presence and activities of the agency in every part of the community.
