Babajide Sanwo-Olu, All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos, says he will provide free WiFi at the Lagos State University (LASU) if elected.
Sanwo-Olu made the pledge on Thursday at a 70th birthday lecture and inauguration of a 500-seater lecture theatre donated to LASU by Adeyemi Makanjuola, chairman, Caverton Offshore Support Group.
The lecture, delivered by Akin Oyebode, professor of international law, is titled ‘Town and Gown, Giving in the Age of Scarcity’.
Sanwo-Olu said the provision of free WiFi in LASU would further improve access to quality and advance technological development in the university.
The APC governorship candidate said the recent call by Wale Babalakin, chairman, UNILAG governing council, on Lagos state to spend N1.2 million per student annually was doable.
He said spending N1.2 million on about 50,000 LASU students would cost the state N60 billion annually.
Also speaking, governor Akinwunmi Ambode assured that Sanwo-Olu would complete all the ongoing projects in the university if elected.
