The students, who are aged between 18 and 29 years old, were arrested at their off-campus hostels, following a three-day raid carried out between September 16 and 19, 2019. Operatives acted on intelligence report, which was investigated using sophisticated equipment.

Some of the items recovered from them, which are believed to be the proceeds of their illegal activities online, include, a 4matic  Benz, a Toyota Camry, a Toyota Corolla, two Macbook computers, two iPads, two iPhones and many other documents, which will be subjected to forensic analysis.

Osun govt cautions Makinde against unguarded comments on LAUTECH, says ‘he needs proper briefing'

Osun govt cautions Makinde against unguarded comments on LAUTECH, says ‘he needs proper briefing'

The Osun state government on Friday cautioned Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state against making unguarded comments on Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), advising him  to be more cautious while dishing out information especially on any issue that affects the citadel of learning.

Speaking on behalf of the government, the state Supervisor, Ministry of Information and Strategy, Hon Adelani Baderinwa in a statement signed and made available to journalists in Osogbo, the state capital further advised Governor Makinde to always do his findings properly on any issue that is of  public interest before such an information be released to the public.

Baderinwa was reacting to the a statement credited to Governor Seyi Makinde on his verified Twitter handle where he accused the government of Osun of not paying the salary of workers of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso.


The former Commissioner for Information and Strategy said contrary to Governor Makinde’s claims, Osun state government has been living up to its expectations and performing its responsibility as equal partner in the LAUTECH ownership since its creation.

The statement reads, in part: “Governor Seyi Makinde needs proper briefing and extensive readings on LAUTECH before he could make factual and objective remarks. Presently, he obviously does not have sufficient facts, or may be playing greed man script. And as a matter of fact, we are aware that the governor had during his campaign promised to acquire LAUTECH and makes it the property of Oyo government alone. We are not surprised that he started on a wrong note of blackmail on the university matter.”However, Governor Seyi Makinde needs to be properly informed that Osun government does not owe LAUTECH workers’ salary, since it took over the payment in July this year. What is outstanding is the August subvention which is being arranged alongside other statutory expenses of Osun government. It is unpleasant that Governor Makinde took to his twitter handle in attempt to make cheap political point on Osun. That is unbecoming of a governor.”May we remind the governor that in 2017, the Osun government committed a sum of N1, 250, 000, 000, and in 2018, Osun government paid N500, 000, 000. Between July 2010 and July 2016, Osun paid a total sum of N8, 692, 488, 234.04. Osun has offset the LAUTECH workers July salary with N300, 000, 000 in this year. We challenged Governor Seyi Makinde to tell the public what Oyo has contributed to LAUTECH between 2010 and 2019. The governor should be mindful of what he will say on LAUTECH.”When owner states were asked to pay N500m each for take off after the visitation panel, Osun duly paid its own, but we are yet to have evidence of payment by our boasting counterpart.”Governor Seyi Makinde should be worried on why LAUTECH has not been self sufficient in terms of funding and academic advancement since its creation, while Osun State University which was created few years ago is making ways financially and academically.”We expect Governor Makinde to rise above the petty game of blackmail and attempt to incite the LAUTECH Workers and the Oyo people at large against the government of Osun and the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola who is very responsive and committed to workers plight.”It is a known fact that Oyo had always wanted to own LAUTECH alone but it is our common patrimony and nobody can appropriate it through blackmail or whatever. Osun is not in any way forcing itself on the joint ownership of LAUTECH. The supposed ‘plan to split’ signed by former governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola and former governor Alao Akala was a ruse. There is a legal and sincere process to be followed if Oyo state is indeed interested in taking over LAUTECH. Osun government will be happy if Governor Makinde initiates that process.
“Osun has always been cheated on LAUTECH: only one (1) out of the eight (8) academic faculties is in Osun, while Oyo has about twice of the staff strength of the University. Osun single-handedly funded the infrastructure development in the LAUTECH campus in Osun; also 85 per cent of the total institution’s infrastructure is in Oyo, whereas funding is equally carried out. Despite this, we are fully committed to joint ownership of our joint heritage.”Governor Oyetola who is passionate about functional education, a team player and a goal getter will not cease in funding LAUTECH.”The amiable Governor Seyi Makinde is urged to take a deeper and more rational outlook at the matters of existence and operation of LAUTECH, otherwise he will get lost in the shenanigans of LAUTECH OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL. Oyo has been a great cheat on Osun in this matter and only a dispassionate and discerning mind can deductively make good sense out of the situation. GSM is thus advised to take rational path before making statements on LAUTECH matter”, the statement continued.

Lautech Students Union Passes Vote Of Confidence On Prof Oladapo Afolabi, Gov. Seyi Makinde, And Gov. Gboyega Oyetola.

BEING A PRESS STATEMENT DELIVERED BY COMRADE ABIODUN OLUWASEUN (LAUREL) PRESIDENT SUG LAUTECH OGBOMOSHO ON THE CURRENT STATE OF THE INSTITUTION
Vote of confidence on Chairman Governing Council Professor Oladapo  Afolabi
Life is never easy. There is work to be done and obligations to be met, obligation to truth, to justice and to liberty:- John F kennedy
Greatest Ladokites, distinguished political leaders, I am delighted to stand before you today and address you as the democratically elected president of the students’ union. You will agree with me that these set of executives are the most controversial but we have always come out stronger from our predicament as a union and as the president.

Earlier this year, the union was proscribed following the campaign of the then governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the person of Engineer Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde who is now the Executive Governor of the pace setter state. We pleaded, lobbied and negotiated before our prestigious union was reinstated although we had to let go of certain privileges as a union and personally as a student union leader.
Although the proscription of the students union was aimed at reforming the activities of student unionism, the timely intervention of His Excellency Engineer Oluseyi Makinde and Professor Oladapo Afolabi (Chairman Governing council) helped in reinstating our union. The primary Objective of being a student is academic excellence and training for societal integration. This institution has been lagging behind in time past because of incessant strikes and disruption in academic calendar, how can we explain a situation whereby  a program that is supposed to be completed in five  years takes seven years. This is condemnable and inhumane and a negative in the education sector.
At this junction, the entire students of this great University through their elected representative wishes to appreciate the chairman of the university Governing Council in the person of professor Oladapo Afolabi an erudite international scholar of high pedigree for his herculean efforts in repositioning the university to greater and lofty heights.

This is aptly demonstrated in the recently released webometrics ranking of the universities in Nigeria where our School Ladoke Akintola University of Technology emerged as the best state university in the whole country and there was also remarkable improvement in its ranking position among both state and federal universities inclusive for the year 2019.
The entire students’ body appreciates our chairman Governing Council for his golden efforts and we pray that the almighty Father shall perfect everything that concerns you and your entire family in his holy name.
His Excellency Governor Seyi Makinde has been in solidarity with the institution since the day he was sworn in as the Executive Governor. If we have enjoyed this kind of support and encouragement from previous administrations I might be on National youth Service by now.  Thank you your Excellency Governor Seyi Makinde.
During his campaign at 1200 lecture theatre, Governor Makinde promised to devote at least 10% of the state annual budget to education and also better qualitative infrastructure to our dear Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, and on this note, I want to implore his Excellency to make good his promise on infrastructure since the first part of 10% of the budgetary allocation to education has been implemented.
Equivocally, the students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Ogbomoso congratulate the Executive Governor of Osun state, Alh Gboyega Oyetola on his victory at the Supreme Court of Justice, indeed (ilerioluwa ti se) and we would love to appreciate his timely intervention in the payment of the JULY monthly subvention and we hope he will continue to support the institution.
I will also like to appeal to the council and management of Ladoke Akintola University of  Technology  Ogbomoso to review the cases of our students who could not write examinations due to inability to pay their tuition fees.
Behind every tunnel cometh light and now we have a university where expected date of graduation could be projected and also a system that works in all areas all thanks to the Vice Chancellor Prof Michael Olufisayo Ologunde, Prof Sunday Adewale, Prof Tunde Olabiyisi, Dr Azeem Ige the Dean students Affairs and all the stakeholders that helped in returning stability back to LAUTECH, The Alumni Association led by honourable Onilede Solomon, LAUTECH Parent Forum, Ogbomoso Parapo, ASUU, SSANU, NASU, NAT and the past students union leaders that championed the 2016 Abuja struggle, Ex- President Solace, Mr Planet, A.G Horla Nawty, Commissioner B, Comrade Tunbo, Com Mighty, Otunba issa Farouq, to mention but a few.
It is on this note and preamble and by the special powers conferred on me as the president of  the students union I hereby pass a vote of confidence on Professor Oladapo Afolabi as the best Chairman of Governing Council ever in the annals of  history of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho and we the entire student’s body desire his continued leadership at the helm of affairs for more progress and development to this great institution.
Thank you ladies and gentlemen.

[Register Now]: Soilless Farming Training Lautech

[Register Now]: Soilless Farming Training Lautech

Soilless Farming is a way of growing plants without the use of soil. The idea is not to replace soil,
but rather to compliment soil. The vision is to create a new generation of foodpreneurs who understand
the importance of food, the role food plays and how to ensure food security via climate smart
agriculture.


The why behind the drive…

1. Nigeria has enough lands but not enough fertile land
2. Seasonal farming isn’t a sustainable way for food security
3. The use of herbicides and insecticides isn’t climate smart nor
healthy for the consumer
4. The average of of the Nigerian farmer is 60, we need to change the
narrative
5. We cannot feed the future with hoes and cutlasses, technology is
needed
6. We can grow more in small areas by the use of vertical farms, create
jobs and increase national GDP
7. The quality of food = health
