Seyi Makinde vows to take over LAUTECH
The conflict of interest between the governments of Osun State and Oyo State on the administration of Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomosho might be finally laid to rest with the decision of Oyo State Government to negotiate the sole ownership of the school.
Speaking on the desire of Oyo State to own Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, the Governor said Oyo is currently negotiating with Osun State. “The way LAUTECH has been running over the years is that from January to June, Oyo State would take up the responsibility of paying the subventions to the institution while Osun would pay from July to December. ” Since we expressed the desire to own the school, we don’t want any situation where the challenges that the school experienced in the past would continue and we have agreed that we would continue to pay subventions to the school.
Meanwhile, we have released their subvention for the month of July on the 25th of July. “This is a demonstration of our commitment to see that LAUTECH survives and I am very optimistic that at the end we will achieve the objective of sole ownership of LAUTECH very soon.”
