LAUTECH OWNERSHIP: Oyo APC, PDP in War of Words Over Tinubu’s Role, Economy
The government of Governor Seyi Makinde cannot all alone claim glory for the sole ownership of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso. It must recognize the inputs and efforts of others especially that of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
This was the submission of the Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Oyo State, Doctor Abdulazeez Olatunde while reacting to questions bothering on the education policy of the Governor Seyi Makinde led government on a radio station in Ibadan on Saturday.
When asked whether the APC in Oyo State will not salute the courage and bravery of the Governor in winning the ownership of LAUTECH for Oyo State, the APC Chieftain replied “I will give it to the government if it recognises the efforts of those that made it possible”.
“Emissaries were sent to Lagos on this matter to negotiate with the Osun State government but all of these, they will not say”.
“Do you think it is possible for Osun State government to concede ownership to Oyo State without the input of some people?”.
He alleged that the Oyo State government is groaning as it finds it difficult to meet some terms of agreement between it and Osun but that it is not making it public.
But also speaking on the programme, the publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party, Engineer Akeem Olatunji faulted the claim of the APC that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu deserves some accolades over LAUTECH .
“I am an Alumnus of that great Institution. I belong to the second set of that citadel of learning and so, I know much about that Institution.
“As the Pro-Chancellor of LAUTECH what did Tinubu do? When that Institution was locked for about two years, what did he do? That is why someone like me can never support the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu because I can’t see his effort”.
