The management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, (LAUTECH) Ogbomoso, has announced the new tuition for students of the school which takes effect in the 2018/2019 academic session.
Recall that the school had been faced with a crisis which led to its several closures with students losing academic calendar.
Staff members of the school accused the governments of Osun and Oyo, which own the school, of failing to finance the institution while establishing new universities of their own.
In a mail sent to the students on Monday, it was announced that the new academic session would start on October 29, 2018. The mail said indigenes of the owner states of Osun and Oyo would pay N200, 000 while non-indigenes would pay N250, 000.
However, in a swift reaction, the students on Tuesday staged a protest in response to the hike in fee. They locked the gates of the school and set up bon fires in front of the school campus in Ogbomoso.
