Lagos - A group representing law students in Imo State denied suggestions there is no free education at all levels especially in state-owned tertiary institutions.
In a statement, the Law Students Association described such reports as “insane.”
“It is unbelievably abnormal for anyone to peddle the wicked lies that there is no free education in Imo state owned tertiary institutions.
"I am a final year law student of Imo State University and I know that I paid school fees under Ikedi Ohakim’s regime before the emergence of Owelle Rochas Okorocha led Rescue Mission Government,” President of the association, Amandi Franklin, said.

He was speaking this past weekend after paid a solidarity visit to Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere.
“We have seen the mischievous propaganda material being circulated around. To our greatest dismay, they do this from the hiding. We have challenged them to come out and face the students who are the ultimate beneficiaries. I have heard some of them shamelessly make illogical argument. I can only say that this is nothing but wicked and insane.”
The sentiments follow arguments, mainly by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), government had contributed to lowering of education standards locally as well as denying some students the right to education through closures of learning centres.
