LASU's Fees Hike Is Immoral And Illegal - Femi Falana

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana has described the hike in fees at the Lagos State University, LASU as immoral and illegal.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria who spoke at the delegates conference of the Academic Staff Union of Universities in Ibadan said it was an act of terrorism for a state government to increase fees beyond the reach of the children of the poor.

He wondered how a civil servant who earns eighteen thousand as minimum wage could afford their send his children to LASU.

He said the policy may lead to stealing and corruption among civil servants.

Femi Falana told the delegates that a Federal High Court has given a judgment ordering the federal Government to establish the Nigerian Education Bank for the children of the poor to access higher education in Nigeria.
