Oyo, Osun Pay N500m To End Lautech Crisis

Oyo, Osun pay N500m to end crisis
The Oyo and Osun state governments have
paid N250 million each to the Ladoke
Akintola University of Technology
(LAUTECH) to end the crisis rocking the
institution.


The Nation confirmed the development
from a very top source in the university
yesterday.
The source said: “Yes, both states have
paid the amount as promised and the sum
is now in the kitty of the university.”
LAUTECH students have been at home for
eight months due to the industrial action
by all categories of workers in the
institution.

The crisis reached a peak last week when
LAUTECH students protested to the Office
of the Governor of Oyo State in Ibadan, the
state capital.

While addressing them, the governor
promised that each owner state would
contribute a sum of N250 million to get
back workers to their duty posts and build
on it afterwards.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi said the sum
would enable the institution to pay some
salaries and reopen for academic activities
before the end of this month.
Reacting, the President of the Students’
Union Government of the institution,
Olatunde Bakare, commended the two
governors, saying it was a way forward.

According to him, the sum, though not up
to exactly what is needed to clear salary
arrears for two months, would help kick-
start the process of implementing the
short term solution to the crisis.
Bakare said once the short term solution is
implemented, it would pave the way for
the
medium and long term solution the
financial problem plaguing LAUTECH. He
promised to confirm the payment.
