The Governor of the State of Osun, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola has described the decision to dissolve the joint ownership of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, as a step taken in the interest of the two states.
The Governor stated this when he received the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, at his office today.
Oyetola said, “It’s important to note that this decision was reached in the best interest of the two states, the students, staff and management of the university. I also want to reassure Osun citizens working at LAUTECH that the ceding of the institution to Oyo State won’t affect their jobs.
“They will retain all rights and obligations stipulated in their letters of engagement. Osun students at the university will also not be discriminated against and will not be subjected to fees or admission differentials.
“Best wishes to the Government of Oyo State as it assumes the ownership and management of the university.”
