LASU Muslim Community Honours Best Graduating Student ..VC Calls For more Support

The Lagos State University Muslim Community has honoured the best graduating student, Mubarak Olaniyi, as the 27th Convocation Ceremony of the institution  gathers momentum, 

Mubarak was honoured at a Special Jumah Service held at the University's Mosque, last Friday, 31st May, 2024 on the Ojo main campus of the university as part of the activities for the Convocation 

Immediately after the Jumah service, the reception in honour of the best graduating student and other first-class degree graduands (Muslims) took place outside the Mosque, with the Vice Chancellor, Professor Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, mni, NPOM as the special guest. She was accompanied by other principal officers of the university to the event.

Professor Olatunji-Bello, in her remarks, thanked the Muslim  community for its continued support and always identifying with her. She congratulated the best graduating student and other first-class degree holders of the 2022/2023 academic session. She advised them to always be good ambassadors of the University.

The Vice Chancellor also used the occasion to warn surrogate staff, who always claim to be bona-fide personnel of the University, to desist from such claims and steer clear of the institution, adding that if they are caught, the law would take its due course.

Furthermore, she enjoined the  teaching staff to embrace technology, especially those with rather large classes, which the National University Commission (NUC) had approved virtual learning for higher institutions, to use it in  teaching their students

She ended her speech by admonishing the staff to always see the big picture of LASU, rather  than personal gains. She added that in her dealings, she sees all staff as one, irrespective of their religion, colour, or language. She called for more support from the staff for her administration.

The Chief Imam, LASU Muslim Community and member, Imam-in-Council, Prof. Amidu Sanni, in his welcome address, applauded the Vice Chancellor for the modest achievements and her commitment to the accelerated development of the institution in her stint since she came on board as the Vice Chancellor. 

He charged the Management to step up the infrastructural  development of the university as the population of students keeps increasing. He prayed the Vice Chancellor would be counted among noble leaders at the end of her tenure.

The highlights of the well attended programme included the presentation of a certificate of honour to the best graduating student by a member of Imam-in-Council, LASU Muslim Community, Prof. Taiwo Salisu, recognition of first class graduating students, special prayer, and praises to God.

The Chairman, LASU Muslim Community, Prof. Babatunde Yusuf gave the vote of thanks to draw the curtain on the event.
