Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has ordered the Vice-Chancellor of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Prof Michael Ologunde to vacate office and hand over to the next principal officer in rank in order to ensure uninterrupted flow of normal activities.

This was contained in a letter was signed by the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Olasunkanmi Olaleye directed Ologunde to “‘step aside until further notice.”

As at the time of filing this report, no reason was given for the sack but it was gathered that Ologunde reportedly drew Makinde’s anger for allegedly inciting workers of the institution over unpaid salaries.

LAUTECH, formerly jointly owned with Osun State, is now under the sole control of the Oyo government.
