LAUTECH reduces tuition fees again
The tuition fee was reduced for the second time after a meeting between LAUTECH management and the students.
One week after the management of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology announced a reduction in its proposed tuition, the school has further reduced the school fees.
The latest reduction in the tuition was announced following a meeting involving the students and management of the university agreed on new tuition fees.
Quoting the University's Student Union President, Abiodun Oluwaseun, Premium Times reports that “300- 500 level students will now pay N90,000 for indigenes and N100,000 for non-indigenes. The 200 level will remain N120,000 and N150,000 for indigenes and non-indigenes respectively and incoming 100 level indigenes will pay N140,000 while their non-indigenes counterpart will pay N170,000.”
Recall that on Sunday, October 28, 2018, Pulse reported that the LAUTECH management reduces the fee from N200,000 to N140, 000 for indigenes while non-indigenes would pay N170,000 instead of N250,000.
The University management also asked the students to resume to school on Monday, October 29, 2018.
Earlier, the students had threatened they would not allow one kobo to be added to their school fees.
While speaking to newsmen about the initial tuition increase, the student union president describe the school management and state government's decision as wicked and insensitive.
''Our students find it very difficult to pay the N65,000; they pasted debtors’ list of over 4,000 students. Now, they have come up with this ridiculous amount. The stand of our union remains that we will not accept a kobo added to the tuition fee.
“The government should live up to their responsibility and give due subventions to the university; we will resist this anti-people policy with our last breath. If for this cause I die, let it be; we are ready for them; we will not be intimidated by the Police or other machinery they want to use against us, and we will seek legal redress soon,” he said.
Ladoke Akintola University was established in 1990 by the government of Oyo and Osun state.
