Toyin Saraki, who is both an SOAS alumni and the SOAS centenary ambassador, shared photos of the dinner on social media expressing her excitement about the event.

She said “This dinner unites two elements which have had a great impact on my life and who I am, my education at SOAS and my birth place, Lagos.

SOAS is here to ask challenging questions about the big issues facing Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the world at large.”

    This is poor…How do you write SOAS all through the article without once stopping to spell out its full meaning, for the general readership?….. Woe betide those who didn’t go to Uni of London now abi…. I am an Alum of one of the Uni of London pool by the way so I don’t need the info for myself…but of course I am not the only reader….so hello!
    Helen Ajayi used to pull this crap too when she wrote for Thisday style… if your mag is addressing only those who have some travel exposure, say so…so the rest can just not drop by. I wrongly assumed that one of the functions of the media was to educate.

      Yeh I thought the same thing, the entire time I kept wondering why it wasn’t spelt out. The first thing you learn in writing is that you always spell out the acronym the first time you mention it. `Really disappointing tbh
