The alumni association of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) will hold an emergency meeting today on the move by the Oyo Government to rename the institution to Ladoke Akintola University, LAU.
Recall that oyovanguard.com had earlier reported that the Oyo Government in its effort to change the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, from a technology university to a conventional university, said a bill titled “2022 LAUTECH Amendment Bill”, will be forwarded to the Oyo State House of Assembly.
The Bill, which proposes to amend the objectives of the university to accommodate other fields of study and alter its present status as a strictly technology institution, as well as allow it to make provision for workers’ pension scheme, was approved at the Executive Council meeting.
