Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos state, has reportedly approved the reduction of the tuition fees for the state-owned university, Lagos State University, (LASU).
The governor’s special adviser on education, Tokunbo Wahab, disclosed this on Friday, January 29, via his official Twitter handle.
Governor Sanwo-Olu slashes LASU tuition fees, according to his education adviser, Tokunbo Wahab.
The governor’s aide also noted that the move is in pursuance and fulfilment of the education agenda of the present administration.
Recall that LASU students had protested the hike in tuition fees by the institution’s authorities. The management of the institution in December 2020 increased the tuition fees for fresh students from N25, 000 to N67, 048.50.
