while acceptance fee and

But in a swift reaction to the
tuition fees increment, the
Students Union rejected the
action and vowed to oppose the
implementation on campus,
saying the body was not carried
along by the government and
the university management
before it was approved.
The report states: “In view of
the enormous financial
commitment required to run a
university vis-à-vis other
competing demands in the public
sector, government accepts the
recommendations to increase
tuition fees and therefore
directs the governing council and
other authorities of the
university to effect the following
graduated tuition fees for the

fee per faculty indicates that

Arts/Education would cough out

It further stressed that
“Government directs that the
new tuition fees shall not be
applied retroactively as current
students are exempted from the
increase. The new tuition fees
will take effect from 2011/2012
Government will mitigate the
impact of the increase in tuition
fees on indigent students by
provision of bursary and
scholarship through its bursary
and scholarship schemes”.
The new President of the
students union, Durojaiye
Olalekan told Daily Sun that the
current or former executive
were consulted by the
government or the university
management stressing that
many students would be forced
to abandon their programmes.
His words: “If there is any
element of truth about the
increment, we will resist it. It is
unjust. In LASU 70 per cent of
students are from less privilege
homes, they will be affected. It is
exploitative in nature”.

OOH my GOD! I have been saying it. The same people again,the same cabal that is holding Nigeria hostage since independence.
The same people that promised minimum wage and free education during their campaign days.the same people that have refused to pay the minimum wage.
The same people that have concluded arrangement to increase fuel to N150 by January.the same people that is out to kill us.The same sponsors of boko haram.
Students and all Nigerians should resist this.It is dehumanizing,it is barbaric,it is wicked

i wonder why all this Government official change once they have tasted power or still in power. With all the promises they made. So sad for our country NIGERIA
|Re: Lasu School Fees Skyrockets by sholasho(m): 6:50pm On Oct 07, 2011|
Congratulation Houdegbe North American University.
Cos I don't know why on earth one would pay such in Lasu and still get delay. Running a 5years course for 6 - 7yrs.
If this is true then am afraid many people will divert their carrier. Not even 30% of people going to Lasu would afford it.
Well Nigeria as a Nation am sorry to say we are doomed. But if only u understand you will agree with it.
I pray things get better though.
|Re: Lasu School Fees Skyrockets by 3kay945(m): 7:30pm On Oct 07, 2011|
Am waiting to see how fashola justifies this act, My advice to the poor and average nigerians, Please have a considerable number of children you can cater for and still enjoy your own personal life.

Were this to be in a PDP-administered state,people would have begun to cast aspersions on anything and anyone associated with the letter P. I've always said it,there is a very little or no difference among all nigerian politicians regardless of party affiliations and until the electorate are able to re-call and sack their under-performing governors even before the expiration of their tenures,Nigeria will eternally remain a failed state!
