LASU trains student leaders on information management, leadership qualities
To infuse intellectual and moral faculties in the minds of the newly inaugurated student union leaders and align them with the vision of the institution, Lagos State University (LASU) recently organised a one-day workshop for them.
The institution’s vice chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun in his opening remarks, charged the union leaders to immerse themselves with the objectives of the present administration targeted at rebuilding the image of the university.
Fagbohun, represented by Dean, Students Affairs, Dr. Femi Obayori enjoined the student leaders to uphold the tenets of the school through their conducts, operations and in all union activities, pointing out that their actions or inactions are capable of strengthening or disrupting the already existing peace in the university.
He further counselled them to work in harmony with all arms of the institution and be wise in information management and dissemination.
“Avoid hate speech and dissemination of unverified information, as it could negatively affect the system and disrupt your academic programmes,” he added.
The workshop themed “Information Management and Public Relations,” was organised by the institution’s Centre For Information Press and Public Relations (CIPPR) Unit, to promote quality service delivery and inculcate leadership traits among the 28th Lagos State Students Union (LASUSU) functionaries.
Deputy Registrar, Legal Unit of the university, Mrs. Olajumoke Boyejo, in her presentation, read out offences that attracts prosecution, suspension and expulsion to the participants, urging them to be guided by the general rules and conducts on campus.
Former LASUSU President, Mr Sulaimon Arigbabuwo, charged the students to resist attempts by mischievous individuals to use them and heat up the polity, adding that union leaders who allow such would eventually lose their relevance and integrity.
He further appeal to the union leaders to work toward a better academic and safer environment in their own interest and that of their institution.
Relieving his experience at the workshop, the General Secretary of the union, Akinwade Akinwale, told The Guardian that the event was highly beneficial as it centred on academic and leadership quality.
