Reduce tuition fees, Pastor Giwa begs Ondo state government

The senior Pastor of the Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Pastor Adewale Giwa has appealed to the Ondo State Governor, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to reduce tuition fees of the state owned tertiary institutions.

The state government had increased the school fees by about 200 per cent in 2017, saying “the initial rates operated under the previous administration were unsustainable”.

Pastor Giwa, in a statement made available to journalists urged governor Akeredolu to rescind his decision and follow the path of Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde on education sector.

“The tuition fees are still extremely high with 80,000 and N150,000. The state government should   reduce the tuition fees drastically.

” Many students and parents are still bitter and angry about the decision of the state government to increase the tuition fees. I want the state Government to do the needful in this regard.

“I urge the government to follow the path of Oyo state government on education; my prayer is for the governor to succeed and he(Akeredolu) should always think about what people would say after he must have left office,” Giwa stated.
