LASU phases out satellite campuses

    The management of the Lagos State University (LASU) says it will no longer use its campuses at Ojuelegba and Anthony Village.

    Adekoya Martins, spokesman of the university, made this known to journalist in Lagos.

    He said both off-campus buildings did not belong to the university and that university would soon erase its name from the buildings.

    National Daily gathered that LASU had in 2017 phased out its external campus programme and replaced it with Open and Distance Learning and Research Institute (ODLRI) which was approved by the National University Commission (NUC) last month.

    Martins said LASU had since relocated its School of Communication from Ojuelegba to its Ojo main campus.

    He explained that the Ojuelegba building, which formerly housed its School of Communication, was donated to LASU by Adebola Adegunwa, now deceased, but the change of ownership could not be effected.

    “For now, LASU does not have business with those buildings which belong to the former partners of the university,” he said.

    “The owners are, however, free to use their buildings for whatever they wish to use it for.”
