In a bid to instill efficiency, timeliness, service delivery and build confidence in the University system, Lagos State University, LASU Management has re-affirmed that the resumption time for members of staff remains 8:00 am, while the closing time is 4:00 pm.
According to Mr. Mohammed Olayinka Amuni, the institution’s Registrar ” This information becomes imperative because the authority has noticed that some members of staff do not resume work or be at their duty post at the appropriate time.”
Mr Amuni who last Monday in the company of some Deputy Registrars visited some offices, Units, Departments, Centers, Faculties discovered that as at 9:00 am, a large number of the workforce had not resumed for duty at their duty post.
He said that ” In view of this unpleasant development, members of staff are strongly advised to desist from coming late to the office as well as not staying at their duty posts.
” So, members of staff who were not found at their duty post on Monday, 11th February, 2019, by 9:00a.m, are warned to desist from such act. Henceforth, those found contravening the resumption rule would be sanctioned accordingly.” LASU Registrar added.

Prof. Fagbohun also advised the elected officials to liaise with the Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations [CIPPR] in the area of publicity. He added that administrative and academic duties of members of staff should be carried out with passion and commitment so that LASU world class students would remember their stay with nostalgia after graduation. “it is only by this that our world class students would consider giving back to the University…it is only posterity that will thank this team.” The VC Said.
