The governor stated that the reduction would affect all students, regardless of their financial position.
Despite the unplanned nature of his visit, Makinde thanked the children for their kind reception.
He stated that he was delighted to fulfill the commitment of winning sole ownership of LAUTECH for Oyo State.
The governor said: “I am glad to be back among you. After the 2019 election, I should have returned to say thank you, but I didn’t want to come until I fulfil what I promised you, which is the sole ownership of LAUTECH by Oyo State.
“I am still coming back to spend the night here and we will really celebrate then. But I can leave you with a parting gift for today. Let me tell you, LAUTECH fee is still the lowest in the Southwest.
“Having said that, I will reduce your school fees across board, whether indigenes or non-indigenes, even for new students. There will be a reduction of 25 per cent across the board.”
Makinde, who also spoke at the inauguration of the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital’s High Dependency Unit, promised that his administration would construct a suitable flyover in Ogbomoso.
He vowed to re-hire 170 teaching hospital employees who had been laid off by the previous administration, and that his administration would refund their five-month salary arrears.
