Lagos State Government has urged the over 750 newly admitted students of Lagos State College of Health Technology (LASCOHET), Yaba, to be law-abiding and focused in their academic pursuit
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr. Tokunbo Wahab gave the advice at the 23rd Matriculation Ceremony organised by the College for students admitted into full-time programmes for the Y2022/2023 academic session held recently at the College premises in Yaba, Lagos.
Wahab, who was represented by Director, Inspection and Monitoring Office, Mrs. Yemisi Omoloye, felicitated with the students for the privilege and the opportunity to be admitted into the College known for its quality education and top-notch services.
He said: “It is a great opportunity for every one of you to be students of this great college where you will be drilled and fortified with everything you need to become professionals in different areas of Health Care delivery”.
The Special Adviser assured the students of the Government’s readiness to increase the profile of the school through the provision of more learning facilities, as well as other amenities that would make the College remain the best in the country.
Wahab, however, reiterated the need for the newly admitted students to remain focused, diligent, law-abiding and mindful of the purpose of being in the school as they work assiduously to achieve their set goals.
Earlier, the Provost of the College, Dr. Moyo Kasim, acknowledged and appreciated the tremendous support of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu through various infrastructural and human capacity investments that have put the College in an enviable position.
He highlighted several achievements of the College since its inception, part of which includes producing several Healthcare Professionals thereby contributing to the Government’s Health and Environment pillar of the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda, stressing that the College had proven its worth as a foremost Health Institution in the Country.
Kasim said the College has also been upgraded to keep up its excellent service delivery, adding that the educational standard of the school is above what is obtainable in other Colleges of Health across the country.
The Provost, however, appealed to the State Government, through the representative of the Special Adviser, for the relocation of the College to a bigger and permanent site, pointing out that space constraints remain a major issue that the College is currently grappling with due to increase in the number of its students.
Also speaking, the Students’ Union President of LASCOHET, Mr. Bakare Abdulazeem Olamilekan, advised his colleagues on ways to become more successful by harnessing the resources in the College to build up their academic careers.
He, therefore, advised them to give their academic pursuit a top priority by paying attention during lectures and abiding by the College’s rules and regulations.
