UNILAG Dissociates Self From Unscientific Publication by gokuu(m): 3:06pm On Sep 21, 2013
DISCLAIMER

Our attention has been drawn to a publication containing research purportedly written by one of the Part Time Postgraduate Diploma Students in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Lagos - Stanley Amalaha, titled “Science of Gay Marriage” in THISDAY Newspapers of 5th September, 2013 and on several blogs on the Internet.

The University of Lagos writes to dissociate itself in its entirety from the actions, publications and research of this individual. We further state, for the avoidance of doubt, that his publication has nothing to do with his programme and has no relationship to his studentship of the University. Indeed our postgraduate diploma students ordinarily only take conversion courses to improve their capability for the chosen specialization and do not undertake research. The case of the writer who has a background in Education (Chemistry) is not different.

Although the University is a market place of different views and ideas, its platform should not be used for the propagation of ill-conceived, unsubstantiated and ill-digested opinions that have no basis in rigorous empirical research. The University of Lagos, which stands for excellence in teaching and research, cannot and should not be associated with such puerile and pseudo-scientific postulations.
The University reaffirms its mission, which is to be a top-class institution for the pursuit of excellence in knowledge through learning and research as well as in character and service to humanity.

Toyin Adebule,
Deputy Registrar

So what are they saying undecided

This write-up is supposedly coming from professors, doctors,phd holders e.t.c, yet one cannot make sense of the article.

I've always said, the problems of Education in Nigeria is with the Lecturers and managers of our Universities.

How come the road side mechanics,bricklayers,carpenters are able to train their apprentices to become experts and in turn train others, yet our lecturers with their doctorate degrees n ph.ds cannot produce a graduate who can create job for himself not to talk of creating employment for others.

I thought I was the only one who noticed that.

Now I know examination is not the true test of knowledge...

Studying to pass and studying to know are two different concepts.

It's such a huge shame that the paradigm of Nigeria employment criteria is based on grades... Neglecting the test for knowledge.
So disheartening.

There was nothing scientific abt d write up. Still wondering how Thisday could publish such. The media attention it received is an insult & indictment of Nigeria's education.

That guy was sponsored by gay rights propagandists, people need to start thinking outside the box. The idea is to ridicule Nigerians who don't approve of homosexuality by coming out with such a ridiculous experiment. Gay right propagandists will go to any length to push forward their agenda.

I don't know how people believe such a grown man like that will really come up with something like that without having an ulterior motive. Those of you claiming to have better education, should learn to think outside the box. In this 21st century, not all things are really what they seem to be.
