LAUTECH: Oyo, Osun Meet To Resolve 7-Month-Old Strike
There are clear indications that the seven-month-old industrial action embarked upon by both the academic and non-academic unions of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo State, will soon be over.
It was gathered that the two states who are the proprietors of the institution met in Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Wednesday to discuss possible ways of resolving the perennial crisis, which has been rocking the institution jointly owned by the two states.
The source who begged not to be named maintained that the “emergency meeting” may not be unconnected with a planned protests by a group of students of the institution who vowed to hold both states to ransom, in a rally billed to take place in Ibadan, Oyo State and Osogbo, Osun State respectively on Monday 9th January 2017.
He said this development propelled the two states to call a meeting on the current state of the institution to avert the rally.
