In their bid to find lasting solutions to the crisis rocking the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), the Oyo and Osun States government have set up a visitation panel to the university.
The panel, which is headed by Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) will review the current terms of engagement with a view of consolidating the joint ownership.
Also, the panel was expected to conduct an audit into the institution’s sources and application of funds while proposing strategies for overall improvement of its quality of education and service delivery.
Members of the panel are: Hon Rasheed Afolabi(Osun), Prof. (Mrs) Akinola (Osun), Prof. Sola Fajana (Osun), Dr Tunji Olaopa (Oyo), Prof. Ayo Salami (Oyo), Mr S. A Raji (Oyo) and Mrs A. O. Makanjuola, the Permanent Secretary, Oyo State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology as Secretary.
Inaugurating the panel last Wednesday, the Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi and his counterpart from Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola pledged their irrevocable commitment to the joint ownership of the institution in accordance with establishment laws.
Ajimobi, appealed to the institution’s academic staff to resume academic activities while they address their grievances, just as he regretted the current challenges of funding and management confronting the institution and restated their commitment to moving the institution forward.
He said: “We have both agreed on the necessity for a comprehensive restructuring of the institution to ensure fair and effective development. We also agreed on the distribution of academic resources, physical structures and other assets of the university across the two states to achieve national, regional and global reckoning.
Ajimobi said that they have both resolved to rededicate their efforts towards the development of mutually beneficial goals that would further cement their bond of friendship and brotherhood.
The Governor enjoined residents, stakeholders, students, teachers and workers in the respective states to go about their lawful duties.
LAUTECH had in recent times faced the challenges of funding from its owner states, which they hinged on the economic challenges bedevilling the nation.
