Newly-appointed Head of Department of Mass Communication, University of Lagos, Dr. Joseph Tejumaiye has said he is going to improve on the legacies of his predecessors to ensure that the department remains the best School of Communication in Africa.
The Associate Professor of Mass Communication, whose tenure started from August 1, replaced Prof. Abigail Ogwezzi-Ndisika who has completed her tenure.
Expressing delight over his appointment, Dr. Tejumaiye noted, “We shall also ensure that alumni bodies (Local and General) are alive to their responsibilities. To achieve the gown and town synergy which today’s world requires, we shall ensure that the best hands are recruited.
“In line with the National Universities Commission (NUC) directives that Department of Mass Communication in Nigerian universities should metamorphose into a full-fledged faculty, this shall be pursued. We shall also ensure that the necessary facilities are acquired for the use of students and staff.”
