LASU Speaks On Plans To Increase Tuition

Published

The Lagos State University (LASU) on Monday denied rumours being circulated that it planned to increase its tuition soon.

The university’s spokesman, Ademola Adekoya, told NAN in Lagos that the rumour was the handiwork of mischief-makers.

“The story is not correct. No iota of truth in it,” Adekoya said.

He said the university’s Governing Council also had not made any recommendation for the increase of school fees.

According to him, the governing council only recently approved an increase on the amount paid on certificates, transcript and other sundry charges as recommended by the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the university.

NAN reports that at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, the university also posted on its official Twitter handle @LASUOfficial, “Kindly disregard any information suggesting an increase in the school fees of LASU. School Fees remains unchanged, please.”

Recall that former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, had on June 11, 2014, announced the reversal of LASU fee which ranged from N197,000 to N350,000 for medical students to the old rate of N25,000 across the board.

Fashola had in 2011 increased the fee from N25,000 to N197,000 for Arts and Humanities’ students, and N350,000 for medical students.

But following several protests by students and civil society groups, Fashola effected a reversal of the fee.

LASU’s tuition was increased in 2005 from N250 to N25,000 under former Governor Bola Tinubu’s administration
