Daily Trust - - EDUCATION - From Dele Ogun­yemi, Ibadan

The Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion of Ladoke Ak­in­tola Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (LAUTECH), Og­bo­moso, has ap­pealed to Gover­nor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun and his Oyo State coun­ter­part, Sen­a­tor Isiaq Abi­ola Aji­mobi, to find a so­lu­tion to the strike ac­tion by unions, which led to the clo­sure of the in­sti­tu­tion for weeks. The univer­sity is jointly owned by the two states. This was con­tained in a press state­ment is­sued by the as­so­ci­a­tion, and jointly signed by the Na­tional Pres­i­dent, Jide Be­waji; Gen­eral Sec­re­tary, Ka­mal K. Oloso and the Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Owoyokun Sam­son.

“It has be­come im­per­a­tive as the own­ers of the univer­sity and con­cerned ma­jor stake­hold­ers in the LAUTECH project to make a clar­ion call to the gov­ern­ments of Oyo and Osun states to com­pas­sion­ately res­cue the in­sti­tu­tion from un­timely col­lapse and save the fu­ture of our beloved un­der­grad­u­ates,” it said.
