Following the dissolution of the long term relationship between Oyo and Osun on the joint ownership of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, which is situated in Ogbomosho.



The Osun state government through the state Honorable Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation; Funke Egbemode has assured the indigene of the state who are staffs and students of the institution that their interest will continue to be protected and that as Oyo state is taking full responsibility for the institution it would in any way affect the indigene of the state.

The statement reads:

The State Government of Osun wishes to assure its citizens that the dissolution of its joint ownership of LAUTECH, following new terms of management spelt out by the National University Commission (NUC), is in no way skewed against the state.

All workers of Osun extraction either in the College of Health Sciences and LAUTECH ceded to Osun or those in Ogbomoso are assured of job security. There will be no intimidation or discrimination against them in the discharge of their duties.

The agreement states that indigenes of Oyo and Osun State working in either of the two entities will retain all their rights and obligations stipulated in their letters of engagements,therefore the State Govt of Osun wishes to inform citizens that there is no need to fret about the dissolution, as all workers of Osun extraction are assured of the security of their jobs.

Osun Students will also not be subjected to fees or admission differentials. They will pay the same tuition fees as their Oyo counterparts.

The agreement ceded the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital and all its assets to Osun. Therefore, all landed properties and movable assets located at the College of Health Sciences in Osogbo, including Mercyland Hospital and Ilie are now properties of the State of Osun.

LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, which is an independent organisation, has not been affected by this dissolution, &will therefore continue to render necessary services to our people.

Citizens are therefore advised to continue to cooperate with the Govt to develop our institutions.

LAUTECH was established in 1990 by the old Oyo State Government with the main campus located in Ogbomoso. The teaching hospital was subsequently established in Osogbo. When Osun State was carved out of the old Oyo State in 1991, both states became joint owners of the institution.

Both Osun and Oyo states have mutually agreed that the joint ownership of LAUTECH be formally dissolved following extensive mediation by the National Universities Commission (NUC), on the need to restore tranquillity and conducive learning environment in both institutions.

The decision became necessary as a result of governance and management challenges.
