The governorship candidate under the platform of the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP in the October 10 elections in Ondo State, Hon. Agboola Ajayi has included the reduction of tuition fees at Adekunle Ajasin Akungba Akoko, AAUA as one of his campaign promises.
Ajayi, who made the promise at his campaign flag-off in Ore, on Saturday said his government will reduce the tuition fees at AAUA to N50,000.
It was gathered that students of the institution currently pay between N150,000 to N180,000 as tuition fee after it was increased from N30,000 by the governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu-led administration of the APC.
Aside from the reduction of tuition fees at AAUA, Agboola’s other campaign promises include the creation of Civil service revolving credit scheme and the initiation of a Zero Pothole Project.
The deputy governor also promised to initiate an Arugbo Scheme that will encompass prompt payment of pension and retirement benefits and a targeted effort to cater to the health and welfare needs of senior citizens.
Also, he said if elected as the Ondo state governor, he would start an operation restore power in Ondo South within the first 100 days in office.
Meanwhile, in a tweet, Agboola stated that the ZLP officially flagged off its governorship campaign in Ore to free Ondo State from a fascist government and bring back the glorious days.
He said the flag-off was done alongside his running mat, Engineer Gboye Adegbenro in the company of the party’s National leader who is also the immediate past Governor of the state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko.
