The Governing Council of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo State, headed by Professor Dapo Afolabi, has directed that the proposed tuition fees in the Institution be brought down to N140, 000 for indigenes of Oyo and Osun States while non indigenes be allowed to pay N170,000, as against the N200,000 for indigenes of owner states and N250,000, for non indigenes. This is according to a media statement by Olalekan Fadeyi Head, Public and Alumni Relations Unit, LAUTECH.
In the same vein Management has also announced resumption for October 29, 2018.
The Governing Council and Management of the University appreciate concern of stakeholders over its present situation, but plead with well wishers to come to the realization that cost of running qualitative and functional first grade technical institutions like ours are becoming unbearably impossible if N65,000 and 72,000 for indigenes of Owner- States and non-indigenes are maintained.
While Internally Generated Revenue from students fees would only remain supplementary, arrangements have been concluded to enlist parents and students into management of University fund in a manner that entrench transparency and accountability.
