The Governing Council of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, has fixed the resumption of academic activities in the university for Friday, September 15, 2017.
The registrar of the university, Jacob Agboola, said this in a statement made available to journalists in Osogbo on Thursday by the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. Lekan Fadeyi.
It will be recalled that workers’ union at the university had embarked on indefinite strikes to press home demands for payment of about 10-month salary arrears.
The university however, urged students to return to their campuses for commencement of academic activities on Monday, September 18.
“Council thanked the governors of Oyo and Osun states, Senator Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi and Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola respectively, for agreeing to support the university with necessary funds to enable the university to return to its normal work schedule and reinvigorate its latent capacities for accelerated and sustainable growth and development.”
