- The Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo has postponed its 24th convocation ceremony due to coronavirus outbreak in Nigeria.
The Herald gathered that LASU disclosed this on Thursday, March 19, at an emergency management meeting.
A top member of the university management was quoted as saying: “Yes, that is the final decision. The management meeting is still on but a conclusion has been reached on the convocation which is indefinite postponement.
“The truth is that if we had decided to continue with our programs, who would have loved to take the risk to attend among both the graduands and the dignitaries?
“Thank God we have not recorded any case with a link to the university as at now, so the best thing to avoid it is to observe all the cautionary measures.”
