Following the hand-over of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology to Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde paid a courtesy visit to his counterpart in Osun State, His Excellency Gboyega Oyetola.
The visit, according to Makinde was hinged on thanking Oyetola for his role in the resolution of the ownership of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso. A decision jointly taken across party lines.
“I acknowledge that we both had to put the students and other stakeholders’ interest first to resolve this ownership problem which had lingered over the years and led to a deterioration of the standard at the university”, he said.
Governor Seyi Makinde restated his commitment to the welfare of all students, regardless of their state of origin.
His words, “I also restated that students from both Osun State and Oyo State will continue to enjoy home students’ status at the university”.
