Lagos State University, LASU Vice Chancellor End Of the Year Appreciation Note for 2017/2018 Session

Three Hundred and Forty Seven (347) days ago, we all welcomed one another to the New Year (2017) and some months down the line it is yet the end of the year and we look forward to 2018.

Year 2017 has indeed been an eventful year and with a heart full of gratitude, I thank God for sparing our lives to witness yet the end of another year.

My sincere appreciation goes to the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council, Professor Adebayo M.A. NINALOWO and other members of the Governing Council, for the purposeful leadership they provided all through the year.

The University Senate in the last twelve months has been very diligent, thorough and committed to the discharge of its duty and I am indeed grateful for selfless service rendered by all members of Senate.

Members of Management have also been very supportive all through the year. The brainstorming sessions have been productive and I cannot thank you enough for the dedication.

The numerous successes that we have achieved in the last twelve months would not have been possible without the concerted effort of the entire workforce (Academic and Non-Teaching members of staff) of Lagos State University.

You all toiled day and night for our University and your hardwork has not been in vain. Today, Lagos State University is no longer a pariah Institution, but the University of choice across the country. With your support, our University in no distant future will be the envy of all not only in Nigeria but also across Africa and the world at large.

There is no doubting the fact that during the year, we have had unpleasant moments with some members of staff, all in the course of duty. Let me kindly remind you all that we are in the process of re-building our University and in the process, our paths might have crossed, but I assure you that the end will be worthwhile for all of us.

Kudos to our world class students who have continually excelled both at home and abroad. Your conduct (on and off campus) has to a large extent advertised the Lagos State University brand to the outer world and the maxim of a new Lagos State University is fast spreading across the nation and beyond.

I will not forget to thank the entire University Community for standing together as one during our trying periods when we lost illustrious members of the community such as Professor Enitan BABABUNMI, Professor Abraham Olukayode OJO, Professor Abubakar MOMOH, Mr. Jimoh Emmanuel WUSU, Mr. Durosinmi Korede OLOLADE, Miss Risikat Arinola ABASS and more recently Professor Ebenezer Oluwole OMIKOREDE. May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace.

Projecting into 2018, I humbly seek the support, cooperation and understanding of the entire University to further raise the profile of our dear University to greater heights. Your constructive criticisms and suggestions in the outgoing year have not only kept us on the alert but also spiced up our ideas.

I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year as I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2018. We are LASU, we are PROUD!

Professor Olanrewaju A. FAGBOHUN, Ph.D
Vice Chancellor
