April 16, 2012 – Lagos State University Exam Committee In N100 Million Fraud Scandal, Exams Postponed Indefinitely

It was recently discovered that it costs the school examination committee about N100 million each semester to conduct exams for students of the institution.
The revelation which has forced the school authority to set up a committee that will look into the whole mess was the reason the exams are not being conducted months after lectures have been concluded as the school management has decided all exams are to be postponed indefinitely.
The executive governor of Lagos State had drawn the ire of the students and the parents recently when he increased the tuition fee from about N45,000 to almost N200,000, citing the need to fund the institution like every other private one which he claimed cannot be achieved with the amount they were paying, only for it to be revealed that the examination committee has been organizing examinations for students of the institution with about N100 million.
Just like the previous cases, it is the students that bear the brunt of the whole thing as those that are expected to have by now concluded their courses now have to wait for another four to five months, as rumour has it that the examinations may now be held sometime around June.
