NUC transfers LAUTECH to Oyo state government

Owned by Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomoso was transferred to the Oyo State government by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

In the resolution that was made following the continuing controversy over LAUTECH ownership, Osogbo University College of Health Sciences was handed over to the Osun State government.

The reconciliation reportedly followed extensive mediation by the National Universities Commission on the need to restore tranquility and a conducive learning environment in both institutions.

National Universities Commission Executive Secretary Professor Abubakar Rasheed, who made the announcement at a press conference in Abuja, said Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Oyo State signed a memorandum of understanding after a high-level tripartite meeting held between November 8 and 12 in Lagos.

The NUC boss expressed optimism that the new arrangement would restore peace to LAUTECH.
