The Oyo State Governor , Mr Seyi Makinde , says Ladoke Akintola University of Technology , Ogbomoso , will not experience financial crisis , now that it will be financed solely by the state .
He added that the university had been provided for in the 2021 Appropriation Bill which he promised to present to the state House of Assembly soon.
The governor said these while speaking at a programme on Fresh FM on Saturday , adding that the administration had been funding the university since he came to power .
He assured workers of the university who are indigenes of Osun State that they would not be discriminated against because of the new ownership .
He commended the Osun State Governor , Mr Gboyega Oyetola , for reasoning with him which made the amicable resolution of the crisis possible.
He said , “ Now the real work has started , we have to ensure it is well funded and it contributes to the economy of Ogbomoso and Oyo State .
“ Nothing is going to change . Of course, we have issues with how the university has been running in the past . We have to change it but it won ’ t matter where you come from . There won ’ t be Osun must go . It is a university . We have what it takes to put LAUTECH where it used to be nationally and also put it on African and international ranking .
“ Assets and liability are part of the process . The process was transparent . Also the NUC valued the assets and the liability and what belongs to A, belongs to A and what belongs to B , belongs to B . It doesn’ t matter anymore . ”
