Adesola Ikulajolu, a student journalist with Campus Reporter, has been selected for the Leadership Ambassador Programme, an initiative of the Nigerian Prize for leadership (NPL).

In the mail which was sent to Mr Ikulajolu, it was announced that the ALP 2021 will be hosted in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, from Sunday the 14th of November to Monday the 13th of December 2021.
More so, the mail saluted Adesola for being selected for the programme, where he would join other selected ambassadors from other states.
NPL-ALP is a programme created to recognise outstanding acts of leadership, based on a clearly defined Nigerian paradigm, at various levels of society, and in specific areas of human interest.
The programme is open to all Nigerians, irrespective of gender, religion, ethnicity, and field of endeavour, which is an initiative to teach, train and imbibe into young minds the culture of leadership through various sessions.
Ikulajolu, who spoke to CAMPUS REPORTER, said being selected for the Nigeria Prize for Leadership Ambassador Programme is heartwarming for him.
“This is a time to contribute to the leadership system in Nigeria and I am glad. Looking to connect with great minds and fellow ambassadors.”
He added that he accepted the selection with joy as soon as he received the mail, noting that the Nigeria Prize for Leadership Ambassador Programme is highly rated, looking at the lineup of Professors and leaders of different sectors that operate it.
“I’m looking forward to a great session of learning and relearning. It will be a time to contribute to the leadership system in Nigeria. Journalism has brought me this far, despite starting from a little beginning. It is a journey I look forward to during the period of my stay.
“And another interesting aspect is the connections that will be built and the impact that will come with it.”
Ikulajolu, who is currently a graduate intern with Premium Times Center for Investigative Journalism (PTCIJ), has continued to thrive in the field of journalism, applying it to help build other young campus journalists.
