Sanwo-Olu slashes tuition fee across Lagos varsities by 65%

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos has announced a 65 per cent tuition fees cut for state-owned universities.

This is as he begins campaign activities for his re-election in 2023.

Students at the Lagos State University of Education (LASUED) and Lagos State University of Science and Technology (LASUSTECH) are to benefit from the gesture.

The varsities’ managements had proposed N195,000 for tuition before Mr Sanwo-Olu slashed the fees by 65%.

Tokunbo Wahab, the governor’s special adviser on education, said this administration will continue to provide support for both universities and make them some of the best in Nigeria.

The president of students’ union government (SUG) in Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Okeychukwu David, said he is delighted by the news.

Mr Okeychukwu said he had a major fear about his educational pursuit due to financial concerns as many of his classmates could not further their education due to financial constraints.

Mr Sanwo-Olu is seeking re-election in 2023 under the All Progressives Congress as he completes his four years tenure next May.

Recently, the governor increased the salaries of civil servants amid the increment of BRT fares and waste bills in the state.
