The Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, has reeled out a list of her achievements in the Badagry campus of the school, as she commissioned a newly constructed two-winged cafeteria.
The commissioning was done at the Orientation program of the Lagos State University School of Basic and Advanced Studies (LASUSBAS) on Monday, January 9.
The VC made this known at the recently held Orientation Programme of LASUSBAS where she also opened a newly constructed two-winged cafeteria and reeled out the massive interventions of her administration at the Badagry Campus in the last 15 months.
She however added that this will happen as long as they meet the cut-off mark, “we shall ensure that you are not denied admission into the 200 Level of our prestigious university.”
Prof. Ibiyemi in her speech congratulated the students on their admission to the school and explained that LASUSBAS is an upgrade on the JUPEB Foundation formerly being run on the Campus.
“Since we had the last Orientation Programme, a lot of positive changes have taken place on this Campus, the most obvious being the change in the nomenclature of this Programme, from the Lagos State University Foundation JUPEB Programme to the Lagos State University School of Basic and Advanced Studies Programme.
“The Senate of our University approved a proposition on change of name to reflect and accommodate wide range of Academic Programmes which we have now introduced for benefit of our people.”
She noted that her administration has invested massively in the development of the Campus, she listed the construction of a new security house and motorcycle, collaboration with security agencies to enhance security of staff and students, procurement of a new ambulance and two generators, installation of CCTV monitoring cameras, laptops, and other pertinent electronic devices for monitoring, ease and effectiveness, as some of her administration’s interventions in addition to the new cafeteria.
The Vice Chancellor in her final notes warned the students against vices capable of hampering their studies in the school. Her words “embrace hard work, shun vices such as cultism, cybercrimes, sexual and gender-based violence, drug and alcohol consumption and examination malpractices. If you are found indulging in any of these, you shall face the penalty.”
Director of the programme, Prof. Yunus Dauda, in his speech, revealed that the new school is divided into four major programmes, JUPEB Examination, International Qualifying Examination in UK, USA and Canada, Leadership Training and Students Mentoring and Professional Bodies Assistance, Conference Supports and Community Service, and thanked the Vice Chancellor for her interventions in the school.
While addressing the students, Prof. Olatunji-Bello congratulated the students on their admission to the School, describing the programme as the best Level Programme in the country based on the previous performances of students in recent years across the country.
She said, “I congratulate your parents and sponsors for making the very smart choice to send you here to receive the best A’Level Education offered in Nigeria. I say this because the performances of our students in previous years support this assertion that we have the best schools here in Nigeria, and this reflects positively on the professionalism, diligence, and hard work of our members of staff.”
While noting that her administration has invested massively in the development of the Campus, the VC listed the construction of the new security house, collaboration with security agencies to enhance the security of staff and students, procurement of a new ambulance and generators, installation of CCTV monitoring cameras, laptops for monitoring and effectiveness, as some of her administration’s intervention for the students.
