“Declare State Of Emergency On LAUTECH”



By Olusakin Babalola Ibadan

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has asked the governments of Oyo and Osun State to declare State of Emergency on the Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso.

The Ibadan Zonal Coordinator of ASUU Dr Ade Adejumo and Chairman of the LAUTECH chapter of the Union, Dr Biodun Olaniran stated this while speaking with newsmen.

The ASUU Dons noted that it was not enough to make LAUTECH a campaign issue and not attend to the problems bedevelling the state institution after the polls.

The duo asked the outgoing government not to politicise raising subvention to hundred percent but also paid all outstanding debts owed tertiary institution before leaving office.

Dr Adejumo and Olaniran lamented that while Ajimobi was busy awarding contracts few days to leaving office he has not cleared ten months salaries being owed staff of the institution.

They lamented that LAUTECH does not have condition of service for her workers.

The ASUU leaders then called on the incoming governor of Oyo State Engineer Seyi Makinde and Governor of Osun State Gboyega to inject funds into the jointly run institution to avoid relapse into crisis.

” It is not too much for Oyo and Osun governments to declare state of emergency on LAUTECH. it is not enough to make it a campaign issue during the elections in both states

“. If Ajimobi wants to raise subvention to tertiary institutions, he knows how much he is owing these institutions. He should go and settle the debt he owes the schools since he is busy awarding contracts left, right and center.

“We are being owed 10months salary and most of our demands are not met yet. Imagine LAUTECH does not have what he can claim as a condition of service for workers.”
