The Nation reports that Wahab confirmed the development when contacted, adding that the approval was in line with Governor Sanwo-Olu’s commitment to providing qualitative education at an affordable price to everyone, irrespective of class, gender, ethnicity, race, among others.

The newspaper quoted him to have said: “Yes, the Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has graciously approved the reduction in LASU tuition fees. An official statement will be issued in due course." The governor's aide also noted that the move is in pursuance and fulfilment of the education agenda of the present administration. Recall that LASU students had protested the hike in tuition fees by the institution’s authorities. The management of the institution in December 2020 increased the tuition fees for fresh students from N25, 000 to N67, 048.50. However, the students demanded the reversal of the decision within two weeks.
