One of such erroneous view- points is that Lagos is no mans land. (Gbogbo wa laleko … we all own Lagos). This assumption rests on fallacy rather than historical reality. Knowledge however is the only vaccine that we have for ignorance. This is why the effort of Prof. Kunle- Lawal, the then Hon. Commissioner for Education, Lagos State, Dr. A.O.K. Noah, the then Provost of the College and Mr. Hakeem Ajose-Adeogun, the then Deputy Provost are highly commendable for establishing the Centre for Lagos State Studies (CEFOLASS) in August 2001 through the Academic Board. This was a major complement to the effort of the History Department of the College that commenced the Awori Studies in 1994.
