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, the LAUTECH fee is still the lowest in the entire South-West. Having said that, I will reduce your fee across board; whether indigenes or non-indigenes, even new students. There will be a reduction of 25 per cent across board.”
He added that the road had been completed and is now being used by residents and students.
The governor stated that from now on, a four-year programme in LAUTECH will not be turned to eight years again.
He said: “Again, if you remember, during my electioneering campaign in 2019, I promised you that we will fix UUnder-Stadium road so that none of our students will get killed on the main road. Now, the road is fixed and you have the street light installed. The securing of the sole ownership of the University means never again will a four-year programme turn into an 8-year programme in LAUTECH.”
He also reassured the re-engaged 170 staff of the Teaching Hospital who were relieved of their employment by the previous administration that the current government will pay their five months salary arrears.
