Adebutu Promises To Cut Fees In Ogun Tertiary Institutions If Elected
The Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu, has promised to reduce tuition fees being paid by students in the state’ higher institutions of learning if elected in Saturday poll.
He assured the electorate that a vote for him on Saturday is a vote for better infrastructure in public schools and better conditions of service for teachers.
Adebutu, who made the promise while receiving a donation of two branded buses and 50,000 notebooks from a coalition of students, blamed the Abiodun administration for paying a lip service to the state’s education sector.

According to Adebutu, the Abiodun’s administration, after spending close to four years in office, had failed to invest massively in the state’s education sector.
He promised to continue the legacy of his father, sir Kessington Adebutu by providing scholarships for indigent students.
The convener of student coalition, Clement Adeniyi after presenting the branded buses, said it was a convenant with Adebutu, to support him in his governorship ambition.
He asked Adebutu if he wins the governorship poll to remember the students community, create new jobs and ensure the payment of bursary to students of the state origin in tertiary institutions.
