Dr. Bola Ofi, the Head of the Nursing Programme at Lagos State University College of Medicine, who is also a member of the Governing Council, applauded the Provost for the continuous upgrade and maintenance of the College infrastructure since its relocation from Awolowo Road, Ikoyi to the Igando Campus.
The Provost of LASCON, Mrs. Oyefunso Orenuga expressed gratitude to the State Governor, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for the appointment of the members of the Governing Council to oversee the activities of the College as required by the Nursing & Midwifery Council Nigeria (NMCN) after its transition to a full fledged College of Nursing.
