LASU mourns pioneer vice chancellor Olumide

Late Prof. Folabi Olumide

Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, vice chancellor,  in a statement issued in Lagos on Friday, said that Olumide died on Friday during a brief illness at the age of 81.

He said that the deceased, a renowned academic and surgeon, would be remembered for being the pioneer vice chancellor of the university between 1983 and 1988, amongst other notable feats he had achieved.

“As a mark of honour, respect and appreciation of his achievements during his stint as the first vice chancell, the university management decided to rename the LASU Health Centre after him in 2020,” he said.

Fagbohun prayed God to give the family and all the soothing comfort to bear the great loss. – NAN
