Our world-class students, welcome back. For several weeks – due to the just suspended nationwide strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), academic activities came to a halt in most public universities in Nigeria.
For us at Lagos State University, the journey continues. Our semester and session have been overstretched – which explains why we all must fully work together to get the LASU academic calendar back on track. Academic activities for the ongoing session resume immediately. We urge our world-class students to earnestly do what is expected of them in the areas of course registration, payment of school fees and preparation for examination as we cannot afford to further drag our academic calendar. There will also be a town hall meeting (date to be announced soon). The meeting will provide us with a platform to chart a collective strategy that addresses identified issues and spotlights proffered solutions.
We equally appreciate the efforts and commitment of members of staff(academic and non-academic). The LASU workforce has shown unwavering commitment to the LASU project and we are grateful for the selfless service being rendered to our university. The university will also look up to all members of staff in every department, unit, faculty, directorate and centre to provide leadership and work towards ensuring all academic and administrative activities hit top gear immediately. At this time, very distinguished colleagues, LASU needs us to once again rise to the occasion and show unprecedented efficiency and effectiveness.
Dear LASU Community, the road ahead of us may appear to be a challenging one. Nevertheless, the LASU story has never been about easy starts or luxurious journeys. Our history has been that of a university community – blessed with hard working staff and creative students who are capable of turning even the most unlikely situations around. We are a community that has emerged stronger from our challenging times and we are now building a prosperous and peaceful university. As one LASU family, we are once again called upon to collectively push the frontiers, stand up for the ideals of our founding fathers and ensure that no bottleneck draw us back in any form. Let us continue to rise, work and fight for a greater, prosperous and peaceful Lagos State University.
Thank you all for your support.
We are LASU, We are Proud !!!
Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun, Ph.D., SAN. Vice Chancellor.
