The Lagos State government has refunded N209m to students of the Lagos State University following the reversal of school fees by the university authorities.
Speaking at a ceremony held at the Main auditorium of the Ojo campus of the school on Thursday, February 26, Fatai Olukoga, special Adviser to the Governor on Education, who represented Governor Babatune Fashola, said this was the first phase in the refund exercise.
He said the second phase of refund, which is about N89 million, would take place soon.
Twelve 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 reversed.Follow Us on Social Media
