Osogbo—Osun State House of Assembly has lauded the Governors of Osun and Oyo states, Rauf Aregbesola and Abiola Ajimobi for the peaceful resolution of the recent controversy about ownership and management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology.
In a statement by the Chairman, House Committee on Information and Strategy, Hon. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, the Assembly said, the gesture of the two leaders had demonstrated that they are living up to the demand of their offices.
The Assembly noted that conflicts can not be ruled out in any human settings even among siblings but allowing conflicts to degenerate to crisis was a responsibility that leadership must prevent.
This resolution according to the assembly would make the institution to be stronger and meet up with the aspiration of its founding fathers.
According to the Assembly, the resolution and the re-affirmation of the joint ownership of the institution by the two states has vindicated that path of peace, dialogue and tolerance was the way to go rather than any party fanning the ember of discord and violence.
“We have always said that Oyo and Osun, are creation of law and the constitution and would not do anything that would contravene the same constitution over the joint ownership of LAUTECH.’’
It then appealed to the workers who have been on strike since the commencement of the ownership crisis of the institution to return to work in the interest of the students host community and the people of the two states.
