OSUN GOVT RELEASES N472 MILLION FOR LAUTECH WORKERS


Osun State governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola on Wednesday released a sum of N472 million to Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso.

This development came barely a week after he inaugurated a five-man panel to negotiate Osun State’s rights and privileges in the joint ownership of the institution.

It will be recalled that the duo of Oyo State governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde and Oyetola met two weeks ago at the insistence of the chairman of the university’s Governing Council, Professor Oladapo Afolabi, to chart a way forward for the institution.

Part of the understanding reached at the said meeting was the setting up of a 10-man committee, five from each state, to look at all the issues surrounding the joint ownership agreements and proffer lasting solutions to the challenges.

While Osun, last week, constituted its own committee, led by Professor Olu Aina, Oyo is yet to inaugurate its own committee.

As a follow up to the understanding reached at the said meeting,  Osun on Wednesday again released funds for both the university and the LAUTECH Teaching hospital in Osogbo.
