Makinde Reduces LAUTECH Fees By 25%

Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde paid an unscheduled visit to Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) on Tuesday, and has announced a 25 per cent reduction in the tuition fees payable by students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology.

According to further reports, he said that the reduction would cut across all students irrespective of their statuses and whether indigenes or non-indigenes.

Makinde stated that, “I am glad to be back among you. After the 2019 election, I should have returned to say thank you to 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.”

He disclosed that, “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, the LAUTECH fee is still the lowest in the entire South-West. Having said that, I will reduce your fee across board; whether indigenes or non-indigenes, even new students. There will be a reduction of 25 per cent across board.”

Meanwhile, the Governor reportedly assured the re-engaged 170 staff of the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital who were relieved of their employment by the previous administration, that the current government will pay their five months salary arrears.

This is coming after he fulfilled the promise of securing LAUTECH sole ownership to Oyo State.
