A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo state Engr Muftau Open Salawu, has charged Oyo state governor, Engr Seyi Makinde to amend the law that established Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, to enable the institution take more courses and expand it’s coast.
The Ogbomoso born civil engineer gave this charge in reaction to the dissolition of joint ownership of LAUTECH by Oyo and Osun states, noting that changing the institution from a technological institution, LAUTECH to Ladoke Akintola University, LAU ,a full conventional institution will further increase the intakes and economic activities in Ogbomosoland.
Open Salawu said “It’s important we all realise the sincerity of purpose of Osun state Government under the leadership of Gov. Gboyega Oyetola in this deal and willingness of Governor Seyi Makinde and hope it will serve as a good beginning of a Conventional State University in Oyo state and Ogbomoso in particular.
“It doesn’t matter whose tenure that sole ownership of LAUTECH is realized but the right thing has to be done always. When Governor Akala and Governor Oyinlola are in the same party We could not get the ownership despite efforts by Oyo state government and deliberate moves by Governor Akala in upgrading General Hospital Ogbomoso to Teaching Hospitals standard and we hope it will serve the purpose now.
“Likewise when Governor Ajimobi and Governor Aregbesola in the same political party could not get the sole ownership deal. Now that we have two Governors from different parties, we got the deal.”
