The Governor applauded the university administration in particular for the recent disciplinary action taken against two erring academic staff members who were indicted in the school’s sex-for-mark affair. He claimed that the sentence would not only serve as a deterrence to other students with similar tendencies, but would also help the university’s reputation. Sanwo-Olu made the remarks during a courtesy call at the State House in Marina on Thursday, when he received members of the Federal Government’s UNILAG Visitation Panel. The chairman, Lt. Gen. Martin Luther Agwai, was in charge of the panel members (rtd). “Seeing a respectable bastion of learning manage its operations appropriately and maintain the ethos of academic achievement is a thing of joy,” the Governor added. As evidenced by media reports from two days ago, the school has maintained a high level of discipline, despite attempts by lecturers to smear the school’s image and brand. Sanwo-Olu reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to improving educational and academic research standards in the state, noting that the state government has increased investment in the sector to improve school facilities. The Governor stated that the State Government will follow through on its promise to UNILAG to build a conventional jetty at the school’s shoreline, while also emphasizing that other infrastructure around the campus was being improved. He mentioned the continuing reconstruction work on St. Finbar’s Road and Iwaya Road, as well as other nearby sites around UNILAG. This endeavor, according to Sanwo-Olu, is intended to give members of the campus community a sense of the State Government’s effect.
