LAUTECH Crisis Will Be Resolved
The Chairman, Visitation Panel, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), has assured the owner states of the resolution of the crisis affecting the institution.
He gave the assurance in Ogbomoso at the inauguration of the Visitation Panel held at the university’s senate building.
LAUTECH, which is jointly owned by Oyo and Osun, has been enmeshed in ownership disagreement and funding.
The situation led to an industrial action by workers since June.
Olanipekun, the pro-chancellor at Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo, said the panel would resolve the ownership disagreements and funding.
He said the panel would also ensure that the school’s highly rated academic standard was revived.
“Academic activities in the university have been paralysed due to lack of funding and disagreement between the owner-states.
Our panel was inaugurated to look into how the ownership of the institution and funding can be consolidated. We are to revive the university as a beacon of light.
“The people should expect sumptuous academic excellence, output and input from us. I believe in the capabilities of members of the panel,” he said.
