LASU begs for donations

The Lagos State University on Tuesday urged parents, guardians and well‎-meaning Nigerians to collaborate with the institution by donating buildings and equipment ‎for infrastructural development.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, made the appeal at the matriculation of the newly admitted students for the 2016/2017 academic session in Lagos.
Fagbohun was represented by Prof. Olumuyiwa Noah, the Acting Vice-Chancellor of the university.
 He said that the donation would be accepted as part of effort to make the institution one of the best ‎universities in the world. ‎ He solicited the co-operation of parents and guardians by joining the Parents Forum of the university.
 According to him, such forum will enable the parents and guardians to participate in molding the character of the students to become responsible men and women of the country in future.
Fagbohun charged parents to partner with the university in nurturing the minds of the fresh students for a brilliant, better and rewarding future.
He said, “I implore parents ‎to still continue to look after these young men and women the fact that they have gained admission to the university does not qualify them to grow out of parental care. ‎
“Parents should warn their children to steer clear of cult related activities, as the penalty for cultism is expulsion.”
Fagbohun, however, congratulated ‎the parents and guardians for the success of their children and wards in scaling through the hurdles of the admission process.
6,026‎ candidates out of the 7,362 students offered admission were matriculated for the 2016/2017 academic session. ‎
