Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state has sent the Lagos State University (LASU) 2015 Amendment Bill to the State House of Assembly for ratification.

According to a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Steve Ayorinde, on Saturday, the bill proposes a single term of five years for the Vice-Chancellor of the institution.

Ayorinde said the governor also sent the Employment Trust Fund Bill 2015 to the Assembly for consideration and ratification.

He said the bill aims to radically transform employment creation in the state with N25 billion proposed to be spent over four years as a support scheme for young entrepreneurs and small businesses.

He said that the two bills were sent to the House as Executive Bills.

Ayorinde said the draft of the bills had earlier been approved by the State Executive Council during its meeting on Wednesday.

Ayorinde said the LASU Amendment Bill 2015 is meant to serve as an improvement over the two previous amendments in 1990 and 1992.

He said it was done with the aim of finding a lasting solution to the challenges that had plagued the state-owned institution in recent years.

According to him, the bill is proposing to amend certain sections of the law to meet current realities in line with best practices.

“It seeks to review the exercise of general supervision over discipline in the university imposed on the Vice-Chancellor and to propose a single term of five years for the institution’s Vice-Chancellor.”

The bill also seeks an amendment that would make the appointment of the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council the prerogative of the Visitor in line with standard practice.

“It seeks an amendment to Section 36(1) and (2) of the Law, which deals with admission policy to place the responsibility of determining the minimum admission requirement on the Senate of the university.” (NAN)
