ASUU Strike Offer Fresh Hopes To New and Returning Students In LASU

The ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union Of universities (ASUU) which left many public universities shut since July might have been perceived as a bad phenomenom from many quarters but as for students and aspirants of Lagos state university, the case is different as they eagerly anticipate the end of the strike hoping that when the strike is finally called off, the tuition fees of the school would drastically be slashed.

Speaking with our Lagos correspondent in the early hours of Thursday last week, a student of the thirty-year-old institution who described herself as Sheilla Omotayo said “before the increment in the tuition fees we paid about# 23,000 per session but now we pay close to #300,000 and our parents are really struggling to meet up, just last year my father died and my family had to sell a plot of land before I could pay; we are really hoping they reduce it(their tuition fees) especially now that the government is ready to better their lot”.

She concluded by pleading on the Lagos state government to wade into the matter.
