The Governing Council of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso has announced a reduction in the proposed tuition which generated heavy controversy in the institution.
This is contained in a statement signed by the institution’s Head, Public and Alumni Relations Unit, Olalekan Fadeyi, and made available to newsmen on Saturday.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the management of the institution had recently announced an increase in the tuition, which attracted condemnation by stakeholders.
The tuition was increased from N65,000 to N200,000 for indigenes, while non-indigenes were expected to pay N250,000 from N72,000.
The statement said that the council Chairman, Prof. Oladapo Afolabi, has directed that the proposed tuition in the Institution be brought down.
Afolabi said that the new tuition should be N140,000 for indigenes and N170,000 for non-indigenes as against the earlier N200,000 and N250,000, respectively.
