Governor Seyi Makinde slashes LAUTECH’s tuition fees by 25%
LAUTECH students are ecstatic after receiving an honourable guest, Governor Seyi Makinde. The governor slashed the tuition fees by 25%.
He announced this during a recent visit to LAUTECH, Ogbomosho, where he assured the students that now that Oyo State has secured sole ownership, the University would no longer experience incessant strikes.
While making the announcement, the governor stated that the 25% reduction was applied across the board. He stated that, though LAUTECH’s tuition fees were the lowest among state-owned colleges in the country, “I have approved your demand on the tuition fees reduction.”
The governor said: “I am glad to be back among you. After the 2019 election, I should have returned to say thank you, but I didn’t want to come until I fulfill what I promised you, which is the sole ownership of LAUTECH by Oyo State.
“I am still coming back to spend the night here and we will really celebrate then. But I can leave you with a parting gift for today. Let me tell you, LAUTECH fee is still the lowest in the Southwest.
“Having said that, I will reduce your school fees across the board, whether indigenes or non-indigenes, even for new students. There will be a reduction of 25 per cent across the board.”
