LASU reopens June 23rd

The management of the Lagos State University, LASU, has announced the resumption of academic activities in the school. The school re-opens June 23rd after it was shut down following weeks of students' protest over increase in school fees. The school fees have since been reduced.
 
Below is a statement released by the school's spokesperson, Kayode Sutton...
"Sequel to the Lagos State government’s agreement to the reduction of the Lagos State University School Fees by 34% to 60% across different faculties, the university management has come up with the precise amount to be paid by students in all departments and faculties. In a swift compliance to this agreement, the Governing Council of the University has approved new school fees which now ranges between N76,250.00 for a final year student in the Arts Department (49.3% reduction), and N158, 250.00 for a 200 level Engineering and Medical (Direct entry) student.
 
“In the new school fees as approved by the Council, a 100 level student in the Adebola Adegunwa School of Communication will now pay N103, 250.00, and a 200 level student (Direct Entry) will be required to pay same fee, while a 200 level returning student pays N88,250.00. For the College of Medicine, a fresh student is expected to pay N115, 750.00, ditto, a final year medical student, while a 200 level (Direct Entry) student in the same College pays N158,250.00, representing a 36.4% reduction.
 
“The approval also stipulated that a 100 level Engineering student pays N115,750.00 , while the returning students in 200_500 level will pay N143,250.00, N143,250.00, N131,750.00 and N106,750.00 respectively. New entrants (100 level) in the Faculty of Management Sciences and a final year (500 level) student will now pay N103,250.00, N113,250.00, N98,250.00, N98,250.00, N86,750.00 and N86,750.00 respectively" the statement read

    Its still expensive... With d rate of increasing poverty in our society, not many parents can afford this. the one's that can will pay unwillingly.
    Its left for the students to be up-and-doin in their studies cos ur parents would hve invested more than a million naira on u all thru ur four or five years stay in sch including sch fees, books, accomodation and allowances.

    Education is a foregone issue in this country, all those Abacha money should be funneled into health and education but no! PDP and APC will just horde the money and use it for re-election campaigns and bribery!

    God will deliver us in from the hand of APC.
    I think Fasola wants to kill his party in Lagos.it is obvious that he is not seeking for any political office under APC again.
