Mr. Fashola stated this on Thursday at the convocation programme of the university.

The Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, has directed that the controversial fee hike at the Lagos State University, LASU, be reversed.

Mr. Fashola stated this on Thursday at the convocation programme of the university.

He said the fees would now be returned to the old charges.

The reversal comes after months of protests by students and lecturers of the university.

The Lagos State Government had, earlier in 2011, increased the fees from N25, 000 to N198, 000 for humanities and education, while medical students were to pay N350, 000.

After the protests, the state government approved 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.

That reduction was still opposed by the students and the lecturers.

Thursday’s announcement by the governor could, however, lead to a reversal to the 2011 charges.

Details later…
