Pioneer students of the Lagos State University of Education (LASUED) Ijanikin/Epe, and Lagos State University of Science and Technology (LASUSTECH) Ikorodu have praised the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for slashing the tuitions by 65 percent.
Management of the two varsities had proposed tuition of N195,000 for their pioneer students before Sanwo-Olu slashed it to N68,000.
A statement by the Governor’s Special Adviser on Education, Tokunbo Wahab, said the Sanwo-Olu administration will continue to give necessary support to the two universities and work towards making them one of the best in the country.
The Adeboruwa of Igbogbo Kingdom, Oba Abdul-Semiu Kasali, described the tuition slash as a big relief as more parents would be able to send their children to acquire a university education.
Baale of Parafa in Ikorodu Local Government Area Chief Jamiu Odusanya described the Governor’s gesture as a welcome development.
