After appointment and inauguration of the Governing Council for LAUTECH, what is the next line of action ?— LAUTECH former SUG President

The mandate and vision of the government has been pronounced and explained in clearer terms, which is “TO REPOSITION THE INSTITUTION

AND CITADEL OF LEARNING TO THE TOP TEN UNIVERSITIES IN THE WORLD”.

Let me start by congratulating you on your well-deserved appointment to pilot the affairs of the university to enviable heights, your appointment which was merited as a result of your heroic performance and delivery of the ownership of the LADOKE AKINTOLA UNIVERSITY OF

TECHNOLOGY OGBOMOSO to Oyo state after the determination of the Oyo state government to assume the sole ownership shows the paradigm shift from the normal tradition by the previous visitors to the university.

Dear Prof Ayodeji Omole, the eagerness is over and the main work should kick start immediately, as the progress of the institution has been inconsistent for the past 12years as a result of the

maladministration of the institution’s former visitors, obviously you are well acquainted with the major issues bedeviling the university,

hence your team is expected to have a blueprint already to place the institution on the global map.

The Oyo state government led by Engr. Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde should be applauded for giving necessary support to the institution before the inauguration of the Governing Council, without mincing words LAUTECH has been coming up and gradually returning to where it belongs on the global map, after the decision of NUC to transfer sole ownership to Oyo state, recently three renowned professor of repute from the

institution was announced as top 100 professors in the country, some students were also announced as regional winners in the Hult prize

global challenge.

“Interestingly there has been a cold war going on in LAUTECH for about 3-4 months caused by tribal, political and religious sentiments. There

are trust deficit between the members of staff and the management, in which many believes there are a lot of backdoor appointments carried

out before the announcement of the Governing board of the institution.

Rumor has it that 70% of staff in a particular department already has an appointment letter with UNIOSUN yet floating in LAUTECH, with

little or no effort to deliver the services they are been paid for.”

Your appointment is coming as a uniting factor and your reputation as a former union leader has given you the necessary requirement to bring

all the stakeholders back on the same page, the continuous payment of salaries and the love and respect for the Executive Governor (Engr.

Oluseyi Makinde) is the reason why things have not fallen apart. The onus is now on the Governing Council to unite all and sundry, purge

out the problematic ones and as a matter of urgency convey a stakeholders meeting of relevant stakeholders to look into

1.      CONVOCATION CEREMONY

2.      ACCREDITATION OF SOME COURSES

3.      EMPLOYMENT OF MORE LABOR FORCE

4.      PAYMENT OF WORKERS ARREARS 

5.      INVESTIGATION OF ALL APPROVED AND ONGOING PROJECTS IN THE UNIVERSITY

6.      PROMOTION OF WORKERS THAT HAS BEEN DELAYED

7.      COMMITTEE TO REVIVE ALL MORIBUND VENTURES AND MEANS OF GENERATING IGR

8.      STUDENTS UNION ELECTIONS

9.      UNITING ALL FACTIONS and all other pending issues.

Finally, the fate of thousands of students is hanging on your decision as the Governing Council Chairman, in the interest of all uniting all

factions and bringing all stakeholders to the same page is the first antidote to the silent war, from this end I wish you and your team a

successful tenure with so many laudable achievements.

LET ALL UNITE TO REKINDLE THE VALUE OF LAUTECH.
