LAUTECH Crisis: Osun Development Association proposes round-table to find lasting solution.
Osun Development Association: a body of educated elites of Osun State, has appealed to the State of Osun and Oyo to come to a round table to resolve the lingering crisis that has plagued Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) and stalled the progress of academic activities of students for sometime now.
This appeal was made by both the Chairman of the Resolution Committee for LAUTECH, Professor Olu Aina; and the Secretary-General of Osun Development Association, Dr. Olatunde Aworanti, during a Press briefing at Professor Olu Aina’s residence in Osogbo on Sunday, 16th February 2020.
The Institution, which is jointly owned and funded by Osun and Oyo for 29 years, has faced many challenges since its inception and the problem has lingered till date.
Dr Aworanti appealed to Governors of the State of Osun and Oyo to resolve the lingering crisis for posterity sake and for the sustained development of academic programs in the institution. In his own words, “the States have to come to a round table as a form of way forward on either to go their separate ways or to continue to jointly own the institution.”
