Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, has inaugurated a five-man negotiation committee that will see to a successful divorce from the joint ownership of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology.
For nearly 20 years, the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology has been the subject of a bitter disagreement between Oyo and Osun states. But now the Oyo state government is ready to take full responsibility of the institution.
The state government announced its willingness to bring the funding challenges as well as incessant industrial actions to an end.
A five-man committee will now oversee the process of nipping in the bud, the crisis that has stretched well beyond two decades within four weeks.
Ladoke akintintola University was founded in April 1990 by the old Oyo state but has remained a hotbed of rivalry since the carving of Osun state
Residents hope that the crisis which has lingered for so long will finally restore decorum to the institution’s population of 30,000 students and 1,200 members of staff.
