NANS commends Fashola for reversing LASU fee

The leadership of the South-West Zone of the National Association of Nigerian Students has commended the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, for reverting the tuition of the Lagos State University to its original rate.

Fashola had increased the tuition from N25,000 to between N193,000 to N350,000, leading the students to go on mass protests.

It was reduced to between 34 to 60 per cent, but the students were dissatisfied before it was finally reduced to the original amount.
