The Management of the Lagos State University (LASU) says there was no iota of truth in the rumour being circulated that it planned to increase its tuition fees soon.
Ademola Adekoya, the university’s spokesman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Monday that the rumour was the handiwork of mischief
“The story is not correct. No iota of truth on the increase of school fees,” Adekoya said.
The LASU spokesman also said the university’s governing council also had not made any recommendation for the increase of school fees.
He said that the governing council only recently approved an increase on the amount paid on certificates, transcript and other sundry charges as recommended by the finance and general purposes committee of the university.
The Lagos based university also took to its Twitter page to inform students to “kindly disregard any information suggesting an increase in the school fees of LASU. School Fees remains unchanged, please.”
