The Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof. Adenike Boyo, on Thursday received in audience, a representative of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Sierra Leone and Dean of the Institution’s School of Postgraduate Studies, Prof. Fraizer Williams.

They were received at the Vice Chancellor’s Conference Room, 6th floor of the Babatunde Raji Fashola Senate Building, Main Campus, Ojo.

Prof. Williams was at the University to expand an existing partnership between LASU and the University of Sierra Leone by seeking other areas of collaboration between the institutions, especially in staff exchange and knowledge sharing. He revealed that following the civil war suffered by the diamond-rich West African country in the late 1990s and early 2000s, his institution was yet to recover from the depletion of human capital that was the aftermath of the war, and therefore sought support from LASU to bolster their teaching ranks.

Director of the Centre for General Nigerian Studies, Prof. M.O.B Mohammed, who facilitated the collaboration, informed the Acting VC and members of the University Management that an MoU that was signed between the Universities was already yielding fruits as three professors from LASU are currently supervising projects at the Sierra Leonean University formally known as Fourah Bay College.

The Acting VC, in her remarks, expressed LASU’s readiness to build on the existing partnership by providing all the assistance required to bolster the personnel of the visiting institution as requested by Prof. Williams, while expressing the desire to welcome students from the institution to LASU.

Members of the university management and the dean of, School of Postgraduate Studies, Prof. Ibrahim Olateju, who was also at the meeting were unanimous in assuring the visiting professor that the engagement would lead to positive outcomes for the institutions.
