The Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State University,
Prof. Lanre Fagbohun, has warned lecturers in the
university not to engage in the sales of
substandard lecture publications and materials to
students.
Any lecturer caught in the act, Fagbohun said,
would face the consequences.
Fagbohun gave the warning at the second Faculty
of Arts lecture held at the Ojo campus of the
university.
Fagbohun said, “Those who are desecrating our
institutions must stop. We will not allow the
exploitation of our students with shady,
substandard and unmeritorious materials. Self-
publication of materials that are below standard
will henceforth not be allowed.”
The VC stated that he planned to inaugurate a
Quality Assurance Committee to access all
submitted materials for publication against set
benchmarks.
The move, he said, was to ensure the publication of
standard materials from the university.
He added, “We will encourage whistle-blowing and
we will protect whistle- blowers. If you package
shady materials and sell to our students, we will
know and we will show up.”
Delivering the lecture entitled, “Vote my wish or
perish in the Lagoon: Identity Politics and the Igbo
Factor in the 2015 Governorship Elections in Lagos
State,” the Dean, Faculty of Arts, Prof. Abolade
Adeniji, canvassed tolerance and mutual respect
among ethnic groups in the country.
He explained, “It has been argued by some that
Lagos cannot throw its political space open to
everyone while the people of Lagos are denied
such rights elsewhere. The truth is Lagos is like no
other city in Nigeria. Lagos can show the ways
since practically a representation of all ethnic
groups in Nigeria are resident there. The Lagos
example may yet with time evolve into a national
practice.”
