I welcome you all to the Lagos State University. Today’s event presents an excellent opportunity for the unfolding story of our new LASU to be told.
Very Respected Colleagues (Academic & Non-Academic)
Let me start by congratulating us all for the feats that we were able to achieve as a university in 2018. Our attainment as a Africa Centre of Excellence amongst other outstanding achievements are products of our synergy, hardwork and commitment. On behalf of our Governing Council and Management, i say thank you.
ADDRESS OF THE VICE CHANCELLOR, LAGOS STATE UNIVERSITY AT AN AFTERNOON WITH BARONESS CHALKER OF WALLASSEY ON WEDNESDAY 15, AUGUST, 2018
Let me begin this address by expressing my profound appreciation to Baroness Chalker for honouring us with her presence today, especially given the circumstances of this trip. The Baroness was recently bereaved of a relative and had to cancel her business appointments in Abuja last week but has pressed on with today’s lecture. This is quite touching for us and I cannot sufficiently express our gratitude to her. She has also travelled here at personal cost in quintessential philanthropic spirit. Thank you very much Baroness. Permit me to also congratulate you on your recent appointment as the President of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) in June of this year, we pray and trust you will succeed brilliantly in taking RGS to greater heights to consolidate on your several years of service to the British people and humanity. I welcome you to the Lagos State University, I believe for the first time, in the hope this commences a long relationship that will be mutually beneficial and treasured.
PRESS CONFERENCE BY THE VICE-CHANCELLOR LAGOS STATE UNIVERSITY ON MONDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER, 2017
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen of the media, on behalf of the Lagos State University, I am very pleased to welcome you to this press conference. The goal is to clarify the issues that have been raised in respect of the decisions of the Governing Council of the University at its 115th meeting held on Thursday 7th September, 2017, and pursuant to which seventeen (17) members of staff (Academic and Non-Academic) were dismissed, while some others were sanctioned. It will also afford the University the opportunity to respond to questions which might not have been raised earlier, and in respect of which respected media practitioners here will love to know the University’s position.
