The Acting Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University, Ojo, Prof. Oyedamola Oke, has urged matriculating students to focus on achieving outstanding performance in their academic pursuit.
Oke, who was represented by Prof. Tunde Owolabi, Dean, Faculty of Education, said this at the orientation and matriculation ceremony for the institution’s sandwich students for the 2020 modular year on Friday in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that over 1,000 students took the matriculation oath at the ceremony.
According to Oke, graduates of the institution’s sandwich programme have distinguished themselves both at home and in the diaspora, with some of them being absorbed as lecturers by the university.
He said: “The sandwich degree programme of the university is not in any way inferior to the regular programme.
“We make available to the programme the same learning environment and lecturers as the regular programmes.
“Therefore, the university awards the same degree to students on sandwich programme as it does to regular programmes.”
Oke said that LASU had been for some time now the university of first choice to students.
“Your choice of LASU is the best decision any student will want to take, because we have a good learning ambience, respectable and committed academics and learner-friendly non-academic staff,” he said.
