Lawmakers praised for supporting HE institution upgrades

The Lagos State government in Nigeria has commended the leadership and members of the Lagos State House of Assembly for giving legislative backing to the planned upgrade of the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Ijanikin, and Sir Michael Otedola College of Primary Education to the University of Education, just as the Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu, will also be upgraded to the Lagos State University of Science and Technology, write Gbenga Salau and Adaku Onyenucheya for The Guardian Nigeria.

Special adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on education, Tokunbo Wahab, who gave the commendations, while speaking on the status of the proposed two state universities, noted that their establishment may be faster and earlier than expected, given the urgent attention and legislative support to the matter by the lawmakers.

The special adviser lauded the lawmakers for supporting good governance in the state through quality legislation, as the House recently debated two bills proposing the establishment of two tertiary institutions in the state.
