The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has applauded the decision of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), to slash tuition fees in the state.
“The directive is noble in content, and imposing in character,” the party said in a statement from its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Alex Kalejaye.
The party noted the governor’s action portrayed ‘practical demonstration’ of fatherly feeling and deep understanding by the governor, which it described as ‘selfless and commendable’ in every sense.

The party further noted that it takes a heart of meekness and uncommon passion about citizens’ welfare to further reduce fees, which is about the least in the country, while emphasising the impressive quality attention to the education sector.
“The willingness of the governor to order reductions, according to the statement, is largely informed by the clamour from parents, and a deep appreciation of the economic hardship foisted on the global community by the Coronavirus pandemic.
“This has further reinforced the popular perception that Mr. Governor is commendably a listening leader.
“So, it is pertinent to remind armchair critics that the compassion-induced directive has nothing whatsoever to do with election.
“The crux of the APC-led government is quality standard of living for the people,” the statement added.
The party, therefore, implored students to reciprocate the gesture by concentrating on their studies and avoid untoward behaviours and activities.
“The APC will continue to support and promote actions and efforts geared toward quality education and better living conditions for the people of Ondo State,” the statement concluded.
