SIKIRU OBARAYESE, Osogbo
Stakeholders in the Alumni of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso have asserted that the two owner states, Osun and Oyo States have not committed any capital project to the institution in the past eight years.
Speaking, after the stakeholders’ meeting of LAUTECH Alumni in Osogbo on Thursday, the group called on Osun and Oyo state House of Assemblies to deliberate on monthly subventions to aid the smooth running of the institution.
The Alumni stakeholders also appealed to the governments of the two states to adhere to the existing funding structure by releasing subventions to the ivory tower as efforts are on to proffer lasting solutions.
Part of the resolutions stated: “In light of the foregoing, we hereby appeal to staffers, students and the host communities of the institution to stay calm and let normalcy return.
“We as Alumni of Ladoke Akintola University frowned at an assemblage of unknown persons posing as concerned Alumni, we state clearly that there is nothing like concerned Alumni. No individual or group of people can be concerned than us.
“However , any individual or group of people who wants to benefit from the crisis by toiling with the future of over 30,000 Ladokites through frivolous press conference, protests and agitations capable of truncating the peaceful resolutions of the crisis will have the Alumni association to contend with.”
The stakeholders also stated: “We condemn in totality the act of impersonation, gross irresponsibility and indiscipline exhibited by some faceless groups.
“LAUTECH is our pride and that any individual member of our Alma Mater should not make LAUTECH a laughing stock in the comity of Universities.”
For a better society
