Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), South/West and Edo Chapter of United Kingdom (UK) have commended Osun State governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola for reducing tuition fees of University of Osun State (UNIOSUN).
In a release signed by the Publicity Secretary of the chapter, Mr. Tunde Ajayi, the UK chapter of the party stressed that the gesture of the governor has further confirmed his passion to make education accessible to children of the poor in the state. According to the statement, the chairman of the chapter, Mr.Kehinde Ojutalayo, while reacting on the trickle down effect of the reduction of the tuition fees, said Aregbesola has demonstrated his resolve to pave way for the brilliant and indigent students, who could give the nation a breakthrough in the future.
Canvassing the support of stakeholders for the state governor, Ojutalayo noted that the action of the governor in slashing the tuition fees has shown that governance was beyond building mushroom projects, to whitewash the governed.
According to chairman, “Governor Rauf Aregbesola has clearly demonstrated that his government is committed to improving the lots of the people of the state by making university education accessible to them at affordable cost, despite the fact that the action would further press the purse of the state.”
Expressing the readiness of the UK chapter of the ACN’s support for Osun state, Ojutalayo stressed that the chapter of the party would make available blueprint on development to the government of Osun state, saying that Governor Aregbesola deserves everybody’s support.
“We have prepared to contribute our quota to the development of the South/West region of Nigeria, and we will soon prepare papers on development based on collective expertise available to the governors of the region, and we are much more impressed by the progressive action of the state governors.
would be recalled that Governor Aregbesola has just recently announced the slash of tuition fees in UNIOSUN by half, claiming that the outrageous old fees was unbearable for the poor people of Osun state.
