The state government has refunded N209m to students of the
state University following the reversal of school fees by Lagos State
University, LASU.

At a ceremony held at the Main auditorium of the Ojo campus of the
school yesterday February 26th, the Special Adviser to the Governor on
Education, Fatai Olukoga who represented Gov. Fashola, said this was
the first phase in the refund exercise. He said the second phase of
refund which is about N89 million will take place soon.

12 students were presented with cheques ranging from N150,000 to
N200,000 while the remaining money will be paid to the accounts provided
by the other students.

The management of the school and the students had witnessed many months
of protest following a hike in school fees until Governor Fashola
intervened in September 2014 and ordered that the school fees be

shared on
