Sanwo-Olu appoints pioneer VC of LASUSTECH

The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the appointment of Prof. Olumuyiwa Odusanya as the substantive and pioneer Vice–Chancellor of the Lagos State University of Science and Technology, Ikorodu.

The appointment of the VC took effect from September 29, 2022.

This is according to a statement released on Wednesday in Lagos. The statement was signed by Mr. Tokunbo Wahab, the Governor’s Special Adviser on Education.

Specifically, he claimed that in order to guarantee continuity in the university’s leadership and preserve the requisite stability of the institution, it had become essential to choose a substantive Vice-Chancellor for LASUSTECH.

“Odusanya was born on February 8, 1965, a Prof. of Public and Community Health and a Fellow of the Medical College in Public Health and Community Medicine.

“He holds Master of Public Health from the University of Lagos; Professor of Community and Primary Health in the Department of Community Health and Primary Health Care, Faculty of Clinical Sciences, College of Medicine, Lagos State University,” Wahab said.

Also, he commended and appreciated the LASUSTECH’s former acting Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Nurudeen Olaleye, for using his experience and good managerial skill to set the new university on a good track.

Additionally, he said, “Posterity will judge him aright as one of the foundation management heads of the university in the future.

“His efforts pave the way for the new administration to start on a good pedestal,” the statement read in part.

“Olaleye had also been directed by the State Government to resume his duty post as LASPOTECH’s substantive Rector. This position is for the next three years and two months remaining for him to complete his tenure,” Wahab said.

Correspondingly, two new specialized institutions were established in Lagos State with approval from the National Universities Commission (NUC).

Equally important, the institutions are Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, now Lagos State University of Education, Ijanikin. Also included is Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu, now the Lagos State University of Science and Technology.
