Vice Chancellor of Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun has said that TETFund intervention projects on the institution’s campuses complement Lagos State Government’s efforts, as they have enhanced the capacity to admit more students into different programmes, amongst others.

With the TETFund projects on our campuses complementing the government’s efforts, our ability to admit more students in our programmes is enhanced. Today, we have 70 programmes and they are all accredited. Also, TTETFund’s intervention has provided opportunity for sponsorship of staff members to conferences and trainings, infrastructural development, and selection of some academic staff for research grants award, among others, and we are very grateful to TETFund.”
