Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde will pay salaries owed to LAUTECH by Osun State
Makinde said this during a media chat on his first 100 days in office with BCOS TV.
The governor said the decision to pay the salary is so that students don’t suffer.
The university is one which is co-owned by both Oyo and Osun states.
Makinde explained that an agreement to split the institution during the rule of Adebayo Alao-Akala (Oyo) and Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Osun) was signed but never implemented.
He added that he would not shy away from splitting the institution as it is “very important to Ogbomosho”.
Yesterday, the governing council came to see me and we discussed all these. We’ve signed for worker payments but since it’s owned by both Osun and Oyo states, unfortunately, Osun state has not paid. This can not continue,” Makinde said.
A few days ago, I spoke to the Osun governor, Gboyega Oyetola, the plan to split was signed between Akala and Oyinlola but we don’t know why it wasn’t implemented. Oyo State will have to pay the salary of LAUTECH (Osun’s share) because I don’t want the students to suffer.
If we have to split up, then so be it, I won’t shy away from this divorce. LAUTECH is very important to Ogbomoso.Governor Makinde
