The Lagos State University of Education has said that in the face of the increasing level of global insecurity, crime, drug use and abuse, and other social disorders, stakeholders must ensure that the university survives, grows, and flourishes.
Speaking at the opening of a security summit, organised by LASUED in Otto-Ijanikin, Lagos, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Bidemi Lafiaji-Okuneye, explained, “The university has come to stay and as major stakeholders, we must join hands to grow the promising citadel of learning.
“In the face of the increasing level of global insecurity, crime, drug use and abuse, and other social disorders, we must nib the social misdemeanours in the bud and ensure that the university survives, grows, and flourishes.
“We can objectify these goals only if we go at it with all hands on the deck.
“Our collective protection of the university is necessary so that by the time the child becomes the father of the man, our names will be written in gold, and we will be happy that we are part of the success story.”
She added that it was based on that that the university management organised the security summit.
Lafiaji-Okuneye also said that the university’s development and achievements within one year of its establishment in the face of national and local challenges underscored the commitment, dedication, determination, courage, focus, and objectivity that characterised the university’s leadership.
LASUED was established in 2022 following the approval by the National Universities Commission and recognition by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, in February 2022.
