Osinbajo, Mahama, Ambode, Sanwo-Olu attend LASU convocation.
The 23rd convocation of Lagos State University kicked off with the official opening of the new administrative block built by the state government.
Dignitaries from all walks of life, including former Ghana President, John Mahama, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, who was the guest lecturer, incumbent Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, and Lagos State Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, were in attendance.
Osinbajo, who delivered a lecture titled: “African Centres of Excellence in African Universities: A Veritable Catalyst for Nation Building and Development”, observed that education remains a powerful force to attain social change.
The new project commissioned during the convocation ceremony is one of several projects Ambode’s government has delivered in his last four years in office.
Recall, shortly before President Muhammadu Buhari went on his 10-day private visit to the United Kingdom, he was in Lagos to commission some capital projects in the state.
