Yet again, Lagos State University students protest non-reversal of high tuition

Yet again, students of the Lagos State University, LASU, and Civil Society groups, yesterday, took to major roads before storming Lagos State House and state House of Assembly in protest against government decision not to reverse the hike in tuition fee.

As a result, normal business and traffic at Alausa and environs were partially halted for hours before the intervention of policemen and task-force officials who restored normalcy.

The irate students, who stormed Alausa at about 11 am, also claimed that all students had been directed to resume for academic session on February 24, as against the institution’s directive that only the final year students should do so.

The school management had last week directed that all final year students of the institution should resume for academic session to allow them engage in the national youth service.

The protesters, who chanted  anti-government slogans, were armed with placards with different inscriptions.

Some of the inscriptions read: “Education is a right not a privilege”, “Adequate funding of education is non-negotiable”, “Reverse the tuition fees now” and others.
