Lagos State University, LASU students union protest increment in acceptance fees. Any attempt to sustain the increment may lead to a looming crisis from the students.
The Lagos State University (LASU) Union, has urged the school management to revert the increase in acceptance fee. The fee, which was formerly N10, 000 has now been increased to N20, 000.
Mr Adeyemi Onikoro, LASUSU Chairman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the reduction should be with immediate effect.
Onikoro said that the increment was another strategy devised by the authorities to exploit the students and a technical way of increasing the school fees.
“Such a policy was initiated sometime ago at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-ife, but it caused crisis which led to the closure of the university for six months.
“We do not want such to happen in LASU, so that the academic calendar will not be distorted; that is why we are calling on the new governing council and the acting Vice-chancellor to do the needful.
“Any attempt to sustain the increment will be vehemently opposed by the students,” he said.
