The former Emir of Kano, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, is expected to preside at the March 26 convocation lecture of the Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo.
The lecture, entitled; “The Future of Developing Economies in a Digital World,” is part of activities lined up to mark the institution’s 24th convocation ceremony.
The lecture will be delivered by the president of African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), Benedict Oramah.
Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun, said on Friday that the choice predated the removal of Sanusi as emir.
He said the removal had not, in anyway, reduced Sanusi’s intellectual richness.
A total of 8,959 will be awarded certificates in various degrees and diplomas during the convocation.
Also as part of the convocation, the university will confer honourary doctoral degrees on six eminent Nigerians, including Senator Oluremi Tinubu; Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), Mrs.Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire; and the chairman of Honeywell Flour, Oba Otudeko.
