Politicians behind LAUTECH crisis, says Omoworare

A member of the National Assembly, Senator Jide Omoworare, has accused opposition politicians in Osun and Oyo states over the crisis rocking the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho.
Omoworare, representing Osun East senatorial district of Osun State, alleged that politicians outside the fold of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the two states should be held responsible for the perennial crisis that had been rocking LAUTECH.
LAUTECH, jointly owned by Oyo and Osun states governments, has been enmeshed in ownership crisis for some months as workers of the institution have remained on strike over the inability of the ownerstates to pay their salaries.
Omoworare, however, accused opposition politicians of being the architects of the crisis in the institution, saying it was a ploy to discredit the two APC states managing the university.
He, therefore, warned the people allegedly fanning the ember of discord over the school’s joint ownership to desist from such action.
The lawmaker also asked members of the Oyo State Assembly not to join these opposition politicians in causing disunity between the states. Some indigenes of Oyo State, under the umbrella of Ogbomoso Parapo Worldwide, Home Branch, had protested and asked the Osun State Government to withdraw from the running of LAUTECH, saying the state has been defaulting in paying subventions to the institution.
Oyo people had also asked Osun indigenes working in the university to leave the school and return to their state or face their wrath. Omoworare frowned at the development, which he described as unwarranted, urging the Oyo indigenes’ group to desist from any act capable of aggravating the situation since they lacked better solution to the impasse.
The lawmaker said this while reacting to a Save-Our- Soul message sent to him by members of staff of LAUTECH, who are of Ife and Ijesa origin.
