The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party PDP Lagos State Chapter, Engr Adedeji Doherty has called on the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make, the issue of being an Indigene, upmost in his list of criteria for the choice of who becomes the next Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University (LASU).
He stated that the Governor, should recollect that, one of the major reasons for setting up the Institution was for total support of Lagos State Indigenes as it concerns Admission and Staff Employment.
Engr Doherty in a released statement said, “For Peace, Harmony and a Sense of belonging for fellow Lagosians, we in the People’s Democratic Party in Lagos State, would like to pull our total support for any of the shortlisted indigenes contesting for the post of the next Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University (LASU)”.
“We are well aware of all the intrigues playing out at the moment”.
“We also have it on good authority, that 15 persons applied for the position of the Vice Chancellor and 3 persons have been recommended to the State Government”.
“We however wish to advise that, for fairness on Lagosians, the consideration of the selection of an Indigene as the next VC should be given utmost priority.”
“We are however, really not too keen on the concerned individuals, all we call for is that the most qualified Lagos State Indigene should be nominated as the next VC of LASU”.
