Governor Babatunde Fashola has directed that the controversial fee hike at Lagos State University, LASU, be reversed to the old charge. Fashola stated this on Thursday at the convocation programme of the university. He said the fees would now be returned to the old charges, in order to carry everybody along.
A body set up by government approved a reduction by 34 to 60 percent which the students say was still high. At last, Governor Fashola himself has stepped in and has ordered the reversal of LASU school fees to its old rates.
I say a big kudos to Governor Fashola for this act of kindness. Now the children of average citizens can go to school without breaking the bank and become responsible citizens. This time, it is victory for both sides!
