After protracted crisis at the Lagos State University over fee hikes, Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola of Lagos State has finally proposed a reduction of the school’s tuition fees.

Mr. Fashola made the proposal during a meeting yesterday with the protesting students under the auspices of Education Rights Campaign (ERC).

It was gathered that the students have staged several rallies and protests to press for full reversal of the hike in their school fees.

 

At the meeting, it was gathered that Mr. Fashola offered to reduce rather than reverse the hiked fee.

In a chat with newsmen after the meeting, the students said even though they would hold meetings and consult with other activist groups, they remain committed to fighting for a total reversal.

“In fact, we believe education should be totally free and not an option of a reduced fee. The government has every resource to achieve that,” said Mr. Hassan Soweto of the ERC.

One protester claimed that, following the controversial hike, the school has continually had a low number of choice applications from candidates in the annual Unified Tertiary Examinations.  Sources within the school informed that, no faculty in the institution has up to 500 students this year.
