She said: “Today is a historic day for us in LASU; being the day we will be taking ownership of this beautiful edifice generously donated through the goodwill of our benefactor, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, to the university. Indeed, there is no better way to start 2024 than with the inauguration of this facility. We have looked forward to it for a long time, and we are glad the day is finally a reality.
“More importantly, this facility is a critical infrastructural intervention at this time when our need for condusive spaces to carry out administrative and social engagements continues to grow as our staff and students’ population increases. It is, therefore, a welcome addition to our infrastructural facilities, and we are happy to have it. Indeed, this is the best new year gift that we can ask for.
“It is worth stating that the Lagos State Government under the dynamic leadership of Mr. Governor has over the years invested heavily in infrastructure and facilities at the Lagos State University and in our other campuses, a huge intervention that is self-evident all over our campuses. Despite this, there is still a gap between where we are and where we want to be. This donation today, and others like this, will go a long way in ameliorating the critical infrastructural needs on our campuses.
