All Part Time Programmes Scrapped in Lagos State University

August 12, 2011 – All Part Time Programmes Scrapped in Lagos State University

 Lagos governor, Tunde Fashola has scrapped all part time programmes run by the Lagos State University, LASU, with effect from the next academic session. There are over 20,000 students running part time programmes in LASU Satellite campuses.

This move means that all the satellite campuses, Anthony, Agege, Epe and Egbeda, will be closed from the next session. The state government said that the move is an attempt to reposition the institution. 

A statement by the governor’s adviser on education, Fatai Olukoga read, “Governor Fashola has already approved the cancellation of LASU’s part time programmes and abolition of the School of Part Time Studies as a way of streamlining its focus to enable it get through with accreditation of many of its courses.”

According to the statement, the government was prepared to bring the school to a high standard of academic excellence and promised to do his best to make the institution fulfil the educational needs of its youths.

Olukoga further explained that the decision was based on the recommendation and decision of its Governing Council. He said that the decision came after due consideration of the report of a Visitation Panel set up by the governor to look into the academic and administrative activities of the school in the last 10 years with a view to finding a permanent solution to the recurring crises in the institution.

He said that all stakeholders, operators of the system, the students and the public in general would be duly informed of the new directives.

The National Universities Commission, NUC, had last year withdrawn the accreditation of nine courses being run by the institution. The crises also led to the sack of its former Vice Chancellor, Prof. Lateef Hussain. The visitation panel set up by the governor to look into the finances and other activities of the school submitted its report last year. Daily times

    Are they going to move all the students to the main campus or going to scrap all the students? Cause im still a fresher (100L). Secondly, are the lectures going to be receives in week ends because the evening lectures is not helping at all, 5pm – 9pm everyday, there is not time to read, very stressful most i always come to school everyday from ikd to jibowu, i got home at times 12pm, is not encouraging at all, i compared with full time, full time is even better off. Thirdly, the tution fees is too expensive for we less privileges #115,000 plus, been a lagosian, no benefits.. Governor Fashola should look to all the afforementioned. Lasu oni daru, Eko oni bajo oooo!!!

    I believe Government exist for the people and the people not for the Government. We are not sure yet if this cancellation is from the Governor, but if it is, I believe adequate provision should be made.

    In my opinion, outright cancellation of the programme will surely be directly proportional to the level of crime that Lagos state wll wake upto. I am a final year student of the part time programme and let me tell u most of us in the programme are frustrated already, if the programme is scrapped, what become of spill over students, its going to be a time bomb and am sure the govenment are not thinking of collapsing the programme to full time, then what we have now will be a good university when compared to what we will have then

    My advise, admission of new students can be stopped to let all in the stream graduate, but efforts should be geared towards effwctiveness and proper management in the programme, while the current student graduate

    Governor Fashola, listen, the programme was legal when we entered, programmes were accredited, we pay our school fees and dues, should be now suffer for poor management? Pls don’t try it for Eko not to baje.

    I believe the step taken by Gov. Fashola is towards repositioning LASU. However, what alternative is the Governor anticipating because, total cancellation of the program means indirectly dis-enfranchising interested working class individuals within Lagos State from human capital development.
    I think, the LASU part time program should be intensively evaluated while, appropriate strategies adopted for better effectiveness and efficiency, rather than its total scrapping-off.
    Gov. Fashola, please kindly instruct LASU P/T directorate to release the results of those that have successfully completed their Degree program on time.Thanks. EKO ONI BAJE OOO……
