The Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, will graduate 153 students with honors at its 27th convocation ceremony next week.

This number is out of a total of 8,477 students who will graduate with a first degree in various disciplines during the event.

The university will also graduate 55 diploma students with distinction and a total of 2,164 students in postgraduate studies.

The Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, made this revelation during a hybrid pre-convocation media conference on Thursday.

She singled out Mubaraq Olaniyi, who will graduate with a CGPA of 4.98 in Accounting, as the best student of the bunch at the Bachelor’s level, and Aminat Olaitan with a CGPA of 4.78 in Educational Management, as the best at the Master’s level.

The Vice Chancellor further disclosed that apart from the 89 PhD winners, the University would also confer honorary degrees on two eminent Nigerians for their “invaluable contributions” to the development of the University and the country at large.

She named the duo Prince Tajudeen Olusi (Doctor of Literature: History, Education and Community Development, Honoris Causa) and Prince Samuel Adedoyin, a businessman (Doctor of Humane Letters: Trade, Industry and National Development, Honoria Causa).

She added that the duo of Professors Martins Anethekhai and Amidu Sanni would also be awarded the University’s Honorary Emeritus and Distinguished Professorships respectively during the week-long event.
