LASU students protest tuition hike

The National Association of Nigerian Students on Monday protested against the hike in fees of the Lagos State University at the Government House, Alausa, Ikeja.

About 200 of them stormed the governor’s office, chanting songs and carrying placards with various inscriptions.

Some of the inscriptions read, “Education is our right,” Fashola reduce LASU fees” and “What have the poor done wrong?”

Security details at the governor’s office gate had tough times controlling the students as they attempted to gain access to the Government House.

Governor Babatunde Fashola, however, later ordered that the protesters be allowed to come and express their grievances.

On their entry, Sunday Ashefon, NANS South-West Zone Coordinator, who led the protest, described the increase in LASU fees from N25,000 to N250,000 as prohibitive.
