“LASU management expresses its commitment to addressing concerns raised by students.

“I approved the provision of free transportation for students commuting between LASU Iba Gate and Iyana-School, morning and evening, daily.

“This is a measure to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal on the students,” she said.

The vice-chancellor said that she also approved the extension of the second semester of the 2023/2024 academic session by two weeks.

“Examination will now commence mid of Nov. 2023,” Olatunji-Bello said.

She added that in response to overcrowding of classes, the institution had adopted a hybrid (physical and online) mode of teaching for large classes.
