Members of the Alumni Association of the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) and other personnel were excited as they celebrated the institution at 40.

The event which was graced by the Rector, Mr Yinka Sogunro, national President of the Alumni Association and other distinguished guests also featured a display by LASPOTECH cultural dance group and citation and decoration of Dr. Bisi Onasanya as fellow of the polytechnic.

The Rector congratulated everyone for the 40th anniversary and also explained that the school which was established in 1977, commenced operation in 1978 is 40 this year.

He also said the polytechnic has achieved a lot and that during the 26th convocation ceremony in 2017, the governor of the state, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode who was present, promised to build the administrative building and also a befitting high capacity auditorium for the school.

“In the history of tertiary in Nigeria, we were the first to put a drone together and flew it during the convocation ceremony” he said.

He also used the forum to appeal to the association to tell members to come for their certificates.

“Now the major thing that we are focusing on is upgrading the institution. We want to have Lagos State Polytechnic University.

“We are not going to do away with what we are running, the ND, the HND,will also run then if you want to move freely to degree level, you can do that.” He said.

The Chairman Governing Council Laspotech, Prof. Tajudeen G.O. Gbadamosi said in his key address that he was delighted to be with the Alumni of the polytechnic.

“Over the last forty years, Laspotech has distinguished itself among its peers in the country. From inception to 2010, the polytechnic had turned out 52,000 graduates. As at 2010, the polytechnic had a staff strength of 1,014, a student population of 6,630 full time and more than 10,000 part-time students spread across six schools, 28 departments and 49 accredited programmes. As at 2012, it had turned out 63,800 graduates and had 52 accredited programmes in 31 departments. In 2018, student enrolment was 30,790 in 36 departments and seven schools, including the School of Part-Time Studies, “ he said.

He also acknowledged the support of all the alumni and the state government.

The former GMD First Bank PLC and an Alumnus of the polytechnic, Mr Bisi Onasanya, who received a fellowship award, expressed his gratitude to be associated with Laspotech.

He also said he was proud alumnus of the school and that the school has made him who he is and what he is today.

He said he was only in the school for the first time about two weeks ago after 35 years of leaving and also prayed that Laspotech would continue to produce qualified chartered accountants for Nigeria and also be the top most institution in Nigeria for the production of professionals across the business world.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
