Lagos state University students have rejected Governor Fashola’s proposed 34% and 60% across the different faculties and courses reduction in school fees.

At a press conference held yesterday June 12th in
Ogba, the President of LASU Student Union Government, Nurudeen Yusuf, said the state government should spell out the proposed new fees in Naira and Kobo rather than this percentage as
their parents who are responsible for the payments do not know how to calculate in percentage.

“We do not accept the 34 to 60% reduction of
the government because in 2011 when the fees
were increased, it was not done on percentage
level; rather, they made the pronouncement in
Naira and Kobo. We urge the government to
come out in words as to how much will be paid
by our students in Naira and Kobo and not in
percentage. How do they expect our parents,
the market women scrambling to pay our fees,
to calculate the percentage? The government is
only trying to play games with our future. We
question their sincerity on this matter because
the pronouncement of the fee was as a result of
a visitation panel set up by the government of
which the report was selectively adopted”
Yusuf said
