In a courtesy visit to the Lagos State Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, the governing council and management of the institution formally invite him as the guest lecturer for the institution’s 13th convocation lecture.

He commended the university’s robust relationship with the Lagos State government and accepted the nomination, emphasizing the relevance of the chosen topic in the current political landscape.

The Permanent Secretary, Olumide Sogunle, praised Caleb University for recognizing the ministry and anticipated a more robust relationship between the university and the Lagos State government.

He assured continued support, emphasizing the ministry’s commitment to the #GreaterLagos vision.

The ceremony is poised to strengthen ties between Caleb University and the Lagos State government, marking the beginning of an enriching collaboration.
