LAUTECH: Tuition Reduction Effected As 2021/2022 Academic Session Begins
It is another good time in the history Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, as the 25% tuition reduction for the students, earlier announced by the Gov. Makinde-led government, has become a reality.
Indigenous and non-indigenous students across all levels of the institution, were in a joyous mood on Monday, due to the fulfillment of Governor ‘Seyi Makinde’s promise on the 25% reduction of the tuition fee of all undergraduates.
It will be recalled that Gov. Makinde had made the promise to reduce the tuition on Tuesday, June 1st, 2021 during his visit to the institution. However, it was not until today which marks the beginning of the 2021/22 academic session that the reduction took an effect.
It was gathered that before the end of 2020/2021 academic session, the present Students’ Union Government under the leadership of Adeboye Anuoluwa had assured all students of the full implementation on or before the commencement of the new 2021/22 academic session.
Extending his immense appreciation to the state government, the President of the Students Union Government, LAUTECH, Adeboye Anuoluwa described him (Makinde) as a promise keeper and God-sent governor to ease their financial burden at this time, to “ARISE a new LAUTECH and make LAUTECH an institution for all”.
