The management of the University of Lagos came up with a resolution to increase the tuition fees of it’s students two months ago, and this has prompted to students to fight against the increase, after the inability to pay the fees due to the present state of the economy.
The planned strike starts tomorrow at the school premises, and a memo to this effect, has been circulated on the social media space.
The school management has responded swiftly, through the Office of the Dean of Students Affairs, DSA, and the students have been advised to be wary of being used by people who ”do not mean well” for the university.
Students of the institution studying medicine who previously paid N19,000 will now pay N190,250, while for courses that require laboratory and studio, students are to pay N140,250.
The Students Union Government of the University of Lagos was banned in 2005, during the tenure of the then Vice Chancellor, late Prof. Oye Ibidapo-Obe, following a violent protest by students during which the residences of the VC and the DSA were attacked.
