The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, will on Monday, January 23rd, deliver the 2017 University of Lagos Convocation lecture.

According to a statement issued by his media aide, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, Fayemi is expected to speak on the topic, “Building a Succession- Generation: Reflections on Values and Knowledge in Nation Building.”

The event forms part of the convocation ceremonies of the university for the 2015/2016 academic session.

The lecture which is scheduled to hold at the Main auditorium of the University, would be chaired by a former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Major-General Ike Nwachukwu (rtd). It commences by 2pm.

Dr Fayemi, immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, is an alumnus of the University of Lagos, having graduated from the institution’s Department of History in 1985, before going for further studies.

A letter from the University, signed by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Rahamon Bello, says Dr Fayemi’s nomination as Guest Lecturer was “informed by the established tradition of best practice in the University which extends such invitation to renowned scholars and dignitaries from within and outside Nigeria, who have distinguished themselves in their chosen career and /or in service to humanity”.
