The governments of Oyo and Osun States
have appointed former Lagos State
governor and national leader of the Action
Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Asiwaju Bola
Ahmed Tinubu as Chancellor of the Ladoke
Akintola University of Technology
(LAUTECH), Ogbomosho.
This was contained in a statement issued in
Ibadan on Tuesday by Dr. Festus Adedayo,
the Special Adviser to Governor Abiola
Ajimobi on Media.
LAUTECH, a university jointly owned by the
two states, was established by the old Oyo
State in 1988.
According to the statement, the choice of
Tinubu, a financial expert, accountant and
administrator, and now author, was arrived
at after extensive deliberations between the
governments of the two owner-states.
The former Lagos State Governor is
expected to bring his administrative
experience in public management to bear
on the running of the institution and
reposition it to meet the standard of its
peers all over the world.
