Reports have it that the management of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) have further reviewed downwards, the new tuition fees of the insitution.
This comes one week after the Governing Council of the school directed that the proposed tuition fees in the institution be brought down to N140, 000 for indigenes of Oyo and Osun States and N170,000 for non indigenes.
