While on a working visit to Ikorodu for the commissioning
of the newly constructed Kimberly- Clark factory in
Odogunyan, I made an unscheduled stop at the new Lagos
State University of Science and Technology (LASUST),
where I assured the teeming students of our strive
towards reducing the institution’s school fees, which I’m

I also informed them of our plans to build, equip and
sustain LASUST such that it will be a reference point in the
academic space in no time.

youths, hence the conversion of the two state-owned
This upgrade will bring about inventions in the engineering
and science fields, and also pave way for other
innovations that are critical to the development of the
country and state.
The addition of these two institutions will also assist in
meeting the demands of the teeming youths who crave for
quality education in order to be leaders, change agents,
decision makers, and reference points not only for
themselves and their families, but for the Nation.
