MAPOLY ‘92 alumni mourn LASU don, Lai Oso


The 1992 set of the Association of Mass Communication Graduates of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, formerly known as Ogun State Polytechnic, has mourned the death of a Mass Communication scholar and one of their lecturers, Prof. Lai Oso.

The MAPOLY alumni, in a statement on Monday by the set’s Chairman, Kunle Adesina, and Public Relations Officer, Kayode Odugbemi, said they would greatly miss Oso.

Oso, who was once the Head of Department of Mass Communication in the school, died in an auto crash on Saturday on his way back from Delta State.

The MAPOLY alumni said,“Indeed, we missed an opportunity to reunite with him as a set when he could not attend our 30th anniversary celebration where we had a dinner to honour our former lecturers after unveiling the television studio of the Mass Communication Department of MAPOLY, which we refurbished.”

The AMACOG ’92 set described Oso’s lectures as one of the most impactful in their days in school.

They described the late don, who was educated at the University of Lagos; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State; and the University of Leicester, England, as a sound mind who impacted the world while he lived.

“There is hardly any known communication person in Nigeria, whether in the media, public relations, advertising or teaching field, who has not benefitted from the wealth of knowledge of Professor Oso, either as his student or attended one training or seminar where he spoke,” the set said.
