*Nigeria: Cry of Lagos State University (LASU) Students

-Masterweb Reports (Submission By Louis Allison)

Dear Editor, I want to use this medium to thank you and your team for giving Nigerians the oppurtunity to veiw our local Newspapers and Magazines on the Internet and also keeping us informed on the latest happenings around the world. I want to say a very big ''thank you'' once again. My main reason for sending you this message is to draw your attention on how the Students of Lagos State University are been treated by the School board or whoever is in charge there.

Everyone in the Country is aware of the recent hike in School Fees in LASU and all the other challanges faced by the Students, but Sir, I want to draw your attention to what I would call the ''WHO CARES'' attitude of the Board or whoever is incharge. After the recent increase in school fees, parents whose children attend the institution had to adapt to the new fees and students who don't have parents to sponsor them work harder to raise enough funds to meet up the fees. ( Continues below….. )

Now, the school imposed it on every student to pay within a given time or risk their education with the school. Some students where able to pay on time but some who had to readjust their pockets to the new fees could not meet up, thereby paying late. The school has a section on its website where students can register their courses for the semester (only available to the early birds that paid their fees within the time frame they gave), it is unavailable to those who pay late. This makes those paying late study in fear and discomfort as they may not be graded for the semester, since their courses were not registered online and this could lead to their faliure and withdrawal from school.

Sir, I am sending this message from my mobile phone with hope that you would help these students appeal to the board or whoever is incharge to have a reconsideration and open the web portal, or provide other means for the students to registar their courses or even assure them that the issue would be rectified instead of threatining the students with possible rustication. Please Sir, I am not sending you this message because of my sister alone, but for every student whose parent has worked hard to make sure that their children get the education they need to be future leaders. Thanks.

OsaEducation should be free in Nigeria. No Nigeria should be made to pay schoolfees, the country is too blessed to subjugates her citizens into this mess and pooverty. One politician can pay the school fees of all nigerian for 20 years. Ibori for example, Banbangida, Obasanjo and the host of others. Is this fair? We must return to God and beg for forgiveness and that our demand for self rule was a mistake. The rulers we have now weep us with scopion, and foreign once did care. Today Nigerians sell their life to go overseas to the land they once dreaded as slaves. Today we willingly seel our belongings to go into slavery. What a legacy. In libya oil wealth made school fees a right for her citizens and housing was another priority. Health was a give away. What has Nigeria afforded her people, except to enslave them and every man for themselves. The theives go after the poor, and past police road blocks target the poor, and the real culpits are untouchable.

raufu salamiI am a strong supporter of Governor Fashola. However it is unbelievable to hear that Lagos State University which is the only university under Governor Fashola's administration should put students through this difficult ordeal.
I have absolute confidence in our Governor Fashola, and I believe he would immediately call the authorities of the University to order
Our Great Pa Awolowo did not toil with education in the West and that is why the West is always recognized and his name is always mentioned with joy and happiness.

daniel  -  usathe most stinking part of this apatheidical slavery in nigerian educational system, infact in all aspects of life in nigeria is that 99% of the graduated students could not find jobs.

shouldn't institution of higher learniong be funded by the federal and may be state governance? the most demanded commodity in the world, nigeria placed at the fifth position in the production of oil. yet a little girl is crying her eye balls out because her older sibblings could afford school fees.

yet we call this guy goodluck ebele (mercy: i think that's what ebele means) jonathan saw this little girl crying profusely in the world wide web.

can anybody tell me where our oil money is going? no roads, no hospitals, no water, no electricity, every basic need item is luxury in nigeria, yet nigeria number 5 in oil production in the whole world.

gej, minister of education, and all those who became incharge of nigeria and nigeria's needs, do you see this little crying, not even for herself but for the sake her older sibblings and millions of the likes of her older sibbling nationwide. if you top thieves of nation refuse to see this little crying girl, i could guarantee that God in his infinite wisdom saw this little crying girl, and her tears will never be invain.

remember, egypt, libya, and so many nations where little girls cried and God came to their aid.

please somebody must arise and wipe away this little girl's tears, nigeria has the resources. this resources must not be stolen by particular people alone, while this little girl cries, is it fair?

SamuelPls Gov. Babatunde Fashula don't allow devil to spoil your good name. Good name is better than riches. With your good name you stand the chance to be an ever green statesman. pls say no to iboris kind tendencies, is not good for you. This is your last chance as governor in Lagos state, so be on your own and stop obeying Tinibu. Nobody voted for you to kill them but to bless them.

Shehu Umar MaiyakiThe most sadist aspect of it is that those who enjoyed 100% free education in Nigeria, are the very people behind the collapse and fall of the standard in education. The Government, i mean the "FG" in any "civilize society" is the supreme controlling authority. Something must be done by the "FG" otherwise, the future of our succeeding generation is in serious DANGER!. Please Mr. president (n the cabinet) do something serous on educational sector and save Nigeria.
