Dr Obasa pledged on Thursday as the institution marked its 40th anniversary and 26th convocation ceremony.
According to Obasa, “the 40th anniversary of the Lagos State University (LASU), which culminated in the institution’s 26th convocation has come with a lot of testimonies, one of which is that 282 finished with first-class honours for the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic sessions.
“This record is good news and further encourages those of us in government to do more to put the institution on the enviable pedestal.
“As I joined graduands today and celebrated with prominent Nigerians who were awarded honourary Doctorates, I also got the assurances that LASU, our LASU, will attain that position we all envisage for it.
“To this end, I am happy to have performed the soil turning off the proposed edifice by HRM. Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla III, for the benefit of the students.
