• Ex-Lagos State Governor, Alhaji Jakande

The Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo, on Monday, named the longest road in the main campus after the first executive governor of the state, Alhaji Lateef Jakande.

The University did him the honour and with a public lecture held on Monday in commemoration of his ongoing 90th birthday ceremonies.

Announcing his name for the road (from the main gate on the Badagry expressway down to the International School and beyond) at the event held at the University main auditorium, the Vice-Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Olarenwaju Fagbohun, said the governing council of the institution had approved the newly named road.

He explained that Chief Jakande was worth more than the honour as he is the brain behind the establishment of LASU in 1983 when he was a governor. (Nigerian Tribune)
