The Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has reduced the tuition fee paid by student of the State University by N10,000.
The reduction, according to the governor was to bring to an end the prolonged agitation by students over the increase of tuition fee by the past administration in the state.
Umahi had during his campaign promised to reduce the fees if he won the 2015 election.
He, however, ordered for the reduction during an interactive session with the management and staff of the university at Ezzamgbo, in the state.
He said the reduction would take effect from next year for both students of Ebonyi origin and non-indigenes of the institution.
Umahi said, “Now, there is going to be conditional reduction of school fees. If there is any case of cultism I will reverse it. So, I have reduced every body’s school fees, both indigenes and non-indigenes by N10,000 each.”
The governor, however, warned against criminal and cult activities.
