National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been suggested as the only solution to the lingering crisis at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, Oyo State.
Tinubu is the chancellor of the institution while the governors of the owner states of Oyo and Osun are his loyalists.
The inability of the two states to pay salary as and when due has crippled activities in institution as the workers’ unions have had to embark on industrial action on many occasions.
Recently, the unions threatened to resume strike following what they termed failure of the government to fulfil agreements signed before they disembarked on the over 7-month strike.
Only yesterday, angry students of the university denied access to candidates writing this year’s unified tertiary matriculation examinations, UTME.
According to the minority leader of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Oyebamiji Olagunju, it is time the former Lagos governor waded in with a view to finding a lasting solution to the issue of indebtedness by the two owner states of Oyo and Osun.
Lagunju spoke yesterday, during the the plenary, when the education committee presented its report to the Assembly over the crisis rocking the varsity in the past few years.
He, however, requested the Assembly to mandate Governor Abiola Ajimobi to urgently seek assistance from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
