Bola Bamigbola, Osogbo the old students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, on Thursday said they would visit some prominent traditional rulers in Osun and Oyo states to get them involved in resolving ownership crisis rocking the institution.
Briefing newsmen of the resolutions arrived at after the LAUTECH alumni stakeholders’ meeting in Osogbo, the national president of the institution’s former students, Solomon Onilede, said if either of the two owner states was no longer interested in the joint ownership, modalities should be put in place for peaceful disengagement.
He maintained that in over eight years, neither of the two owner states had committed any capital project to the institution.
He then appealed to the government of Osun and Oyo states to follow the existing funding structure for the university by releasing subventions to the institution.
“We appeal to staffers, students and the host communities of the institution to stay calm and let normalcy return,” Onilede said.
