For the first time since its establishment 54 years ago, a student of the Department of Psychology in the University of Lagos, Mr. Ayodele Daniel Dada, has set a record in the institution by becoming the first student of the university to graduate with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.0 at its 2014/2015 convocation ceremony slated to start on February 28.
The school’s convocation will kick off with a lecture to be delivered by the Minister of Science and Technology Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu at its main auditorium.
