The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo has faulted Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s plan to reduce tuition in higher institutions in the State.
The party described Akeredolu’s plan as mere campaign to hoodwink the electorates ahead of the October Gubernatorial Election.
The party in a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Peretei wondered why the reduction at this time.
The statement reads, “Did he just realise that hundreds of students have dropped out of State owned tertiary institutions on account of increased fees?
” Did Akeredolu not say that the increment of fees parents were complaining about is not more than the cost of a pair of shoes?
“Making such a pledge now that elections are just around the corner is laughable and ridiculous. It is a calculated attempt to deceive the people who have outrightly rejected Akeredolu and the APC for anti-people policies and Programmes.
“There is no amount of deceit and fake promises that can save Akeredolu from defeat at the polls come October, 2020”.
Governor Akeredolu had promised to reduce the tuition in teritary institutions in the state while hosting members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS)
