LASU Students Rejects 34 to 60 percent Reductionon Tuition Fees by the State government

We brought to you news yesterday on the agreement
of the Lagos State Government to reduce the Lagos
state university LASU tuition fees on compassionate
grounds.
Report reaching us has it that the State government
has approved a reduction, ranging from 34 to 60
percent but left the decision on what each department
will pay to the Governing Council of the university.
Below is the old fees and amount reduced for various
Faculties based on the 34-60 % reduction
However, the students expressing their opinion
through the President of the Students Union
Government, SUG, Mr. Nurudeen Yusuf, has rejected
the reduction as announced.
According to him what will be acceptable by the
students is a reduction of the fees to at most N65, 500
for fresh students and N46, 500 for freshers.
In his words, “We are not yet happy about the latest
development because the govt. is yet to tell us the
exact amount they have reduced the fees to in Naira
and Kobo.”
“They should come out in clear terms to tell us directly
the exact amount we are going to be paying, not
saying the Governing Council will determine the
amount each faculty will be paying. When the fees
were hiked in 2011, it was government who directly
told us in naira and kobo what each faculty will pay,
and not in percentages.”
“This is our stand which will be made known in a press
conference tomorrow”
Below is the amount faculties will now pay based on
the 34-60 % reduction;
