Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has announced a 25 per cent reduction in the tuition fees payable by students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho.
The governor made the announcement on Tuesday during a brief interaction with the students at the school auditorium in Ogbomosho.
Makinde, while making the announcement, said the 25 per cent reduction cut across board. He asserted that though LAUTECH tuition fees was the lowest among state-owned universities in the country, “but I have approved your demand on the tuition fees reduction.”
The governor further promised to prioritise needs of the institution to enhance smooth academic programme in the school, saying that “never again will a four-year programme turn to eight-year programme in the school.”
