The Vice-Chancellor of University of Lagos, Professor Folasade Ogunsola, yesterday said the eight months’ industrial strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) was a great setback to scholarship.
She stated this yesterday while briefing newsmen on the 53rd Special Convocation ceremony to also celebrate the university’s 60th anniversary, where a total of 2,251 students across various programmes will receive their degrees, diplomas and certificates.
Following ASUU strike which disrupted Academic activities in public universities, UNILAG would only graduate postgraduate students.
