The management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho has announced a new tuition fee for the 2018/2019 academic session. The new tuition arrangement was disclosed in a newsletter which was published and sent to all students of the school by the University management.

According to the newsletter, LAUTECH students will no longer pay N65,000 (Sixty-five thousand Naira) or N150,000 (One hundred and fifty thousand Naira) as seen in the cases of the 2017/2018 admitted students. All Lautech students who are indigenes of the Owner-States (Oyo and Osun) of the University will pay N200, 000.00 (Two hundred thousand Naira) per session while non-indigene students will pay N250, 000.00 (Two hundred and fifty thousand Naira) per session.

The new tuition fee has sparked outrage across the school as students have started complaining about how absurd the new school fee sounds especially since it will affect all students of the school including the final year students.

It will be recalled that some months ago, information in a secret memo was leaked, the information contained plans being made by the management of LAUTECH to increase the tuition fee of the school by over 300% at the time, however, the University management denied making such plans when they were challenged by the Student Union Government (SUG) of the University.

The University management also disclosed the resumption date for the 2018/2019 academic session which is scheduled to be October 29th, 2018.

Below is an extract of the newsletter informing the students of the new tuition fee;
