The newly constituted  Governing Council of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso,  has pledged to restore  normalcy in  the institution.

The  Chairman of the council, Prof. Oladapo Afolabi,  made the pledge at an inaugural meeting held on Saturday at the institution’s main campus in  Ogbomoso.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the institution co-owned by Oyo and Osun States has been engulfed in  crisis over issues bordering on irregular subvention and unpaid salaries.

The owner states had on July 25 inaugurated a new  council for the institution led by Afolabi.

Other members are Lai Olurode, Olamide Adedokun, Abiodun Owonikoko, Isiaka Olagoke, Tise Adenipekun, and Bade Adesina.

The new  council pledged its readiness to return the once best state university in the country to its glorious past.

Afolabi, at an interactive session  held with workers’ unions, urged  stakeholders to rededicate themselves to the upliftment of the institution.

He urged them to shun all divisive tendencies that had  brought the institution to its present comatose stage.

Afolabi stated that the council had  officially appointed Messrs KPMG to carry out the audit of the institution so that  academic activities could commence in earnest.

Earlier, the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, had  called on the new council to do all within its power to ensure that normalcy returned to the institution.

The monarch,  who  received  the council members in his palace, also  expressed confidence in the administrative capability of the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Adeniyi Gbadegesin.

According to Oyewunmi, Gbadegesin is focused and committed to the welfare of workers and wellbeing of the university.
