Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commended the University of Lagos (UNILAG) management for entrenching the culture of discipline and sustaining the school’s academic excellence.
Sanwo-Olu gave the commendation on Thursday, during a courtesy call by members of the Federal Government’s Visitation Panel for UNILAG at the State House, in Marina.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the panel members were led by the Chairman, Lt. Gen. Martin Luther Agwai (rtd.).
The governor praised the university management for the recent disciplinary action taken against two erring academic staff indicted in sex-for-mark scandal that rocked the school.
He said the sanction would not only serve as deterrent to members of the school that might have similar tendency, but also redeem the reputation of the university.
According to him, it is a thing of joy to see a reputable citadel of learning managing its affairs properly and sustaining the culture of academic excellence.
”The school has maintained high discipline, as seen in the media reports about two days ago, where lecturers who want to bring down the image and name of the school, were sanctioned.
”The management of the school has been firm in ensuring that nobody is above the law. These are parts of the commendable steps which the school management has taken, to ensure the standards are sustained,” he said. (Guardian)
