The coming of the new vice-chancellor, Lagos State University, Prof. John Oladapo Obafunwa, is ushering in good tidings in the ivory tower which was, last year, preoccupied in crisis over fees hike.
The incumbent VC has come along with projects which will upgrade the institution to an international standard academia as proposed by her proprietor. The projects include construction of central libraries, the senate building, two new lecture halls, new students’ union arcade, electrification and repair of road network.
The wind of change has begun in earnest in the school as the electrification of the institution and renovation of the popular 3-in-1 lecture hall and resurfacing of the road are in progress.
Speaking to a senior worker, Mr. Abbey Abimbade, he said the work commenced three weeks ago and will be completed soonest.
Expressing their joy on the renovation, students appealed to the management to ensure that the projects are completed on time.
For Owolabi Ibrahim, 300 level, Banking and Finance student, “it is a good transformation which I’m happy to witness in LASU. However, the fee is still an issue that needs to be addressed by all stakeholders because it is absurd to pay such an outrageous fee in a state university.
Thanking the management for the renovations, Adeola Oluwatayo, 200L, Mass Communication student pointed out that more lecture halls should be constructed as 100 level and 200 level School of Communication students still share one lecture hall.
