The Vice Chancellor, Lagos State University, Ojo, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello has assured students of continued increase in admission opportunities for candidates who graduate from the Lagos State University School of Basic and Advanced Studies (LASUSBAS) formerly known as LASU Foundation JUPEB Programme.
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.
