Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has hailed the University of Lagos (UNILAG) for entrenching the culture of discipline and sustaining the school’s academic excellence.

The governor commended the institution on Thursday June 3, 2021, when he received members of the Federal Government’s Visitation Panel for UNILAG at the State House in Marina.

He also hailed the disciplinary action taken against two erring academic staff indicted in sex-for-mark scandal that rocked the school.

Sanwo-Olu said the sanction would not only deter members of the school that may have similar tendency, but also redeem the reputation of the university.

“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,” Sanwo-Olu said.

He added, “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.”

Sanwo-Olu reiterated his administration’s commitment to raise standards of education and academic research in the state.

The governor stated that the state government had committed more investment in the sector to provide infrastructure in schools.

He said his administration would fulfil its pledge to UNILAG on construction of a standard jetty at the school waterfront.

Sanwo-Olu stressed that other infrastructure around the campus were being ramped up. He cited the ongoing reconstruction work on St. Finbar’s Road and Iwaya Road, and other adjoining areas around UNILAG.
