A body, under the aegis of Past Students’ Union leaders of Lagos State University(LASU), has called on Stakeholders of the university, Staff, Students, Alumni, Parents, Guardians, and well-meaning Lagosians to support the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, Mni, to take the university to greater heights.
The past leaders were in LASU recently, to felicitate and show support for the numero uno of the Institution.
In an interview with CIPPR, at the end of their discussion with the Vice-Chancellor, the convener of the group, Ayodele Ayotunde stated that “we are here to felicitate, celebrate and show solidarity for Professor Olatunji-Bello. I left LASU about 16 years ago. Coming in, I saw a lot of transformation. You can see the tremendous changes, kudos to the VC”.
Speaking further, he averred that the Vice-Chancellor can place the university on the global pedestal.
He described Professor Olatunji-Bello as a passionate leader, a woman of substance, and one with a good heart. He called on the Governor and visitor to the University, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and members of his cabinet to continue to support the university. He thanked the governor for his love for the university.
To the students, Ayodele urged them to shun all negative vices, such as cultism, indecent dressing, alcoholism as well as gangsterism, adding that their education should be the utmost priority. He ended by wishing the university well.
Another former Students leader, Damola Oshikoya, Ministry of Transport, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, gave kudos to the Vice-Chancellor in her efforts to close ranks between the ASUU members by putting up a committee to resolve their differences.
“We are happy with the performance of the Vice-Chancellor since she came on board. We thank her for the peace. We seek support for the VC from everybody, the staff, students, the Alumni, unions, and all stakeholders. She has started very well and we pray she continues in this direction”, he remarked.
He ended by calling on the LASU Alumni to do more for the university by constructing a befitting alumni building for the university.
