This action will guarantee the formation of a partnership to launch “Innovation to Transform Education Training” (ITET) in Nigeria.

Future Perspectives, a non-profit co-founded by the immediate past vice president, will collaborate with the UNESCO agency to equip youth educational stakeholders with innovation, policy, and project implementation skills, according to a statement from Osinbajo’s media team.

This will ensure support for their role as agents of change, capable of devising and implementing their own initiatives as well as participating in other collective efforts to transform education for current and future generations.

A portion of the assertion read:

“With a keen focus on Africa, the organisation is convinced that in shaping the Future of the World, the voices of Africa’s youth must be prominently woven into global conversations, their participation and activism will not only create a profound impact within the region but also bring forth the invaluable perspectives of Africa to the global stage.

“This project is part of the capacity-building component of the United Nations Global Youth Initiative, a ground-breaking multi-stakeholder global initiative for “Youth to be equipped with policy and project implementation skills to transform education.”

“The project would also include the UNESCO Better Innovation Better Outcome (BIBO) Academy which focuses on “Youth Empowerment and Leadership”, led by IESALC.

“UNESCO is launching the ITET, a first of its kind, as a pilot in Nigeria through Future Perspectives because of Prof. Osinbajo’s continued commitment to ensuring that Nigerian youths have access to quality education, using technology and innovation to be competitive locally and globally.”

Former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is Appointed to a New Position

Remember that Professor Osinbajo was recently named Global Advisor to the Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet.

On Twitter, he wrote:

“I am excited to announce that I have been appointed Global Advisor to Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet @EnergyAlliance.

“Together, we will work to unlock capital flows into the clean energy sector and boost Africa’s share in the global carbon market through #ACMI.”

Abiodun says that Osinbajo carried on Awolowo’s legacy as vice president for eight years.

Recall that recently, the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, lauded former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for his immense impact while serving in the previous administration.

This was stated by Governor Abiodun at the reception held by the Ikenne Development Association in his birthplace of Ikenne, Ogun State, in honor of Professor Osinbajo.

He stated that in eight years, Osinbajo carried on the legacy of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the former premier of the old Western Region.
