Sanwo-Olu’s Special Adviser, Bonu Solomon, Offers Scholarship to 200 in Badagry

The Special Adviser to Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tourism Mr Solomon Bonu has offered scholarships to 200 newly admitted indigenous Badagry students in Lagos State Tertiary institutions.

At the Award Ceremony which was held on Wednesday 15th January, 2020 at Badagry Town Hall, Bonu noted that this is not a new initiative as he has been paying fees for those who could not afford to pay since his lecturing days at LASU.

The scholarship was awarded to 100 newly-admitted students from LASU alongside 50 students from LASPOTECH and AOCOED respectively.

The event witnessed the presence of the newly inaugurated 30th Lagos State University Students’ Union President, Comrade Ashade Basit who appreciated the efforts of Mr. Solomon Saanu Bonu noting that “this is unprecedented and uncommon among the political class” while considering the short pace of time Bonu assumed office.

In his reactions, Bonu noted that “what I am doing here today has always been my desire for my community especially as a less privileged person too who worked tirelessly, do rigorous petty businesses before I could afford my school fees years back.

More also as a lecturer I have had to pay school fees of a few number of students who pass through academic financial challenges.”

KUDOS TO A UNITED LASU FORCE OF STAFF & STUDENTS.

On Monday, 6th January, 2019, our University was shaken by the near unfortunate incident involving some of our 100 Level students as they prepare to write their GNS 102 Examination.

The incident, in the hours and days that followed, was greeted by a deluge of media reports, some with different colourations and intentions, and some deliberately exaggerated to embarrass the University. We commend those media practitioners who were constructive and professional in their reportage, and to them we say thank you.

Also highly commendable is the conduct and guarded comments of our Staff (Academic and non- Academic) and Student Leaders on the issue. This was largely instrumental in dousing the tension that mischievous third parties were trying to ignite. Together, we all took responsibility as an Institution and worked aggressively on solutions.

The robust manner in which the entire LASU community rose up to the challenge showed clearly that we are indeed a force, united in the defence of the good name and image of our University. Challenges will always come in different forms, but, when we work together as we all did on this occassion, we will surmount any challenge.
That is the strength of an institution focused on one goal, which is to achieve excellence without resorting to blame game.

I thank you all for being steadfast, resolute and undaunted in your determination to see that LASU does not go back to the days of conflict and disunity. We have once again proven that the new LASU spirit of togetherness has come to stay. Together we shall prevail.

THANK YOU most sincerely.

We are LASU, we are Proud.

Prof Olanrewaju A Fagbohun, SAN, NPOM.

LASU Students Retake CBT Examination Peacefully!

Students of the Lagos State University are currently seating for their GNS examination peacefully following a sad incident that marred the exercise on Monday.

BlackBox Nigeria gathered from students in Ojo campus that several Academic and Non Academic staff were deployed by the University Management in order to prevent the recurrence of Monday stampede.

It will be recalled that a stampede was reported on Monday January 6th when 100L students of the Institution stormed the all new CBT Centre/Language Laboratory in the Main Campus to write their GNS Semester examination. It was gathered that the students were scampering to be among the 1st batch to write the exam as the hall couldn’t accommodate all at once.


The Coordinator of the Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations, Ademola Adekoya disclosed to BBN360 that the University Management has ensured that all hands are on deck to ensure that the exercise goes peacefully as he revealed that the two centers to be used are in good condition.

VICE CHANCELLOR’S NEW YEAR MESSAGE

Very Distinguished Colleagues and Our World Class Students, Happy New Year. May our lives be filled with happiness and unending breakthroughs in this new year. As we look forward to another prosperous year, we must remember that our job is not done yet.
For more than three years, we as a community have worked so hard to redefine our history as a university. Within this period, success stories became so frequent on our campuses – none of which were easy feats, but, are products of your hard work and unyielding commitment to a common goal.

This New Year presents us with another opportunity to raise the bar of excellence, reach the phenomenal heights we have never attained before, achieve greatness in our respective careers and strengthen the bonds that bind us together as one LASU family.

On behalf of the University Management and the University Governing Council, I wish you and your loved ones – a happy, prosperous and progress filled year 2020.

We are LASU, We are Proud!
