LASU to complete TETFUND sponsored High-Impact project in 18 months
The Lagos State University (LASU) says that the ongoing construction of the High-Impact building Project for Academic Advancement, sponsored by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) will be completed in 18 months.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Olanrewaju Fagbohun, disclosed this during an inspection tour to the site of the building on Tuesday at the university campus in Ojoo, Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that TETFUND awarded N3 billion grant to LASU in 2018.
The VC said the grant was invested in the construction of the High-Impact project, designed as a Six story building with three wings.
“The project, fully sponsored by TETFUND, is expected to be completed and handed over to the university in 18 months.
“The building would among other facilities, house a world-class international conference centre and a multi-purpose facility for various academic activities.
“It will apart from the lecture theatres and labs, have relaxation centres, such that one can rest in the course of his or her academic activities,” he said.
The Vice-Chancellor, however, lauded the construction firm handling the project for its hard work so far and assured of the university’s support.
NAN also reports that the site of the building was along the Connoil Gate of the university, behind the staff quarters.
