Fashola Orders Reversal of LASU Fees

Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola on Thursday directed that the controversial fee hike at the Lagos State University, LASU, be reversed.
The Governor gave the directive while speaking at the convocation programme of the university. He said the fees would be returned to the old charges.
Students and lecturers of the institution had protested the fee hike for months. It will be recalled that in 2011, there was an increase in the fees from N25, 000 to N198, 000 for Humanities and Education, while medical students were to pay N350, 000.
The government however shifted some ground after series of protests, approving a reduction by 34 to 60 per cent.
That reduction would have seen students pay between N76, 750 and N158, 250 depending on the faculty and year of study.
The government’s gesture was however found unfavourable by the students and lecturers.
It is believed that with the announcement on Thursday, the fees might be reversed to the 2011 rates.
