Obasanjo to Chair LASU Convocation Ceremony Lecture

LASU Convocation Ceremony has been scheduled to hold on May 23, 2018 and May 24, 2018 and as has become the culture, series of events have been scheduled for this year’es convocation, one of which is the Convocation Lecture. Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, will chair the Lagos State University (LASU) 22nd Convocation Lecture for this year. The lecture is entitled: Role of Education in Promoting Social Cohesion and Peace: Opportunities and Challenges for Nigeria.

The university’s Spokesman, Mr Adekoya Martins, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday. Martins said that arrangements for 2016/2017 Convocation were in top gear.

He said that Obasanjo would be the Chairman of the Convocation Lecture to be delivered on May 22 by Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission.

According to the spokesman, LASU held convocations in March, saying that the 2018 edition was rescheduled due a nationwide strike by non-academic university workers.

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the National Association Academic Technologists (NAAT) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) embarked on an indefinite strike on December 4, 2017 under the aegis of Joint Action Committee (JAC). The union blamed the strike on government’s non-implementation of some parts of an agreement it had with JAC on Sept. 20, 2017.

Following understanding JAC had with agreement the government, the workers, however, suspended the strike on March 15.

Activities heralding the LASU convocation ceremony are to begin on May 17, 2018 and the convocation cup competition for staff would take place on May 17, 2018, Jumat service, May 18, 2018 and a special thanksgiving service, May 20, 2018.
