APC Warns PDP To Stop Politicizing Reversal of LASU Tuition fees

In reaction to recent accusations by the People’s Democratic Party, the Lagos chapter of the All Progressives Congress has defended the state government’s decision to reverse the high tuition fees at the Lagos State University saying the reversal was meant to facilitate, and speed up the building of a world class university that befits the status of Lagos.

In a statement released yesterday, the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said that the state government decided to reverse the high tuition fees at the Lagos State University (LASU) in the overall interest of Lagos residents and also so that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not continue to use it to score cheap political points.

“Lagos State Government reversed a robust decision meant to facilitate, and speed up the building of a world class university that befits the status of Lagos so that villains will not turn out to be heroes overnight.PDP Lagos thinks they have found something tangible to help them sell a useless product called PDP in Lagos, but they have found nothing as the rug has been removed from under their feet.

“PDP Lagos thinks they have found something tangible to help them sell a useless product called PDP in Lagos, but they have found nothing as the rug has been removed from under their feet. Their PDP keeps almost 60 per cent revenue allocations and starve the 36 states, including Abuja and the 774 local government. Their PDP sells our crude oil and decides how much to keep, and how much to declare to Nigerians, and even the money they declare as earnings from sales of crude oil, they steal a large chunk of it. Nigerians are yet to know the truth about the missing 20billion US dollars they kept aside for 2015 elections,” the APC said.

News reports also say claimed that PDP-led government at the centre has been raising the fuel price since 1999, raised school fees in federal universities and other federal institutions.
