Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo has been postponed indefinitely its 24th convocation ceremony slated for this month.
The decision was in response to the rampaging coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
It was taken at an emergency management meeting on Thursday.
PREMIUM TIMES reports that the university management took the decision at about 1 pm on Thursday.
The source was quoted as saying: “Yes, that is the final decision. The management meeting is still on but a conclusion has been reached on the convocation which is indefinite postponement.
“The truth is that if we had decided to continue with our programmes, who would have loved to take the risk to attend among both the graduands and the dignitaries?
“Thank God we have not recorded any case with a link to the university as at now, so the best thing to avoid it is to observe all the cautionary measures.”
