What we are now doing is to have an arrangement whereby we can do a governance process and audit where our students are when they graduate.”
During his welcome address, LASU Vice chancellor urged the students to make use of the Career Fair tagged: “Employability Enhancement of Career Advancement in a Dynamic Labour Market.”
“Whatever university you finish in this country; you will be competing with those who finished from Yales of this world. That is why you must take advantage of whatever opportunity you have.
“For the employers of labour who are here, I say this; in three years, 10 months, other than the national strikes, not one minute of downtime have we had in this institution,” he said.
Professor Fagbohun later confirmed that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration will continue ReadySetWork project.
“ReadySetWork is a critical project with which we are engaging our students and we have been informed that the new administration in Lagos State will continue with that programme,” the VC said.
