In a fast changing world where reward for soft work has increasingly dwarfed excellence, the Lagos State government under the leadership of the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has offered 5 million Naira each to the best graduating students of undergraduate and master programmes of Lagos State University with automatic employment on Friday.

Sanwo-Olu said during the presentation that education was one of his biggest priorities hence the increased budgetary allocation to the sector for the current year. He added that the only way to improve civil service is to attract the best brains into the field.

“Today, as part of our promise to reward academic excellence in Lagos State, I presented cheques of N5 million each to the best graduating students of the Undergraduate and Masters programmes of the Lagos State University.

“Shotunde Oladimeji Idris, the best graduating student was also offered automatic employment into the state’s civil service as we continue to improve the attractiveness of our civil service for the state’s best brains.

“At the start of this administration, improving education in the state was highlighted as one of my biggest priorities, and we demonstrated commitment by increasing budgetary allocation to the sector as we work on improving the quality of our curriculums & welfare of our students.” Sanwo-Olu concluded
