Osun On The Right Path Of Governor Adeleke’s Rebuilding Efforts

Students Reject Oyo Govt’s Move To Rename LAUTECH


The Students’ Union Government (SUG) of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, has rejected the decision of Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, to rename the institution.

The SUG President, Anuoluwa Adeboye, and Public Relations Officer, Gabriel Michael, in an open letter made available to newsmen on Friday, said renaming the institution would do more harm than good to its image.

The governor had recently sent a bill to the state assembly on the proposed renaming of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) to Ladoke Akintola University (LAU).

But the SUG said changing the name of the institution would negatively affect the goodwill of the institution, saying the strength already gathered by the name could all be forgotten.

The union said it believed that it would cause more distractions and even sabotage most of the governor’s salient efforts in the continuous development of the institution.

According to the statement, LAUTECH as it were, has started operating as a conventional university.

“Courses such as Marketing, Economics, Business Management has commenced earlier on.

On Monday, February 7, 2022, NUC visited our dear institution, LAUTECH, for the proposed Departments of English and Literacy studies, Philosophy, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Sociology, and History.

“They all came to study the university’s preparedness to commence the new programmes. Hence, there is no need to hide under the so-called change to conventional university as this doesn’t have any effect on the name

“A case study is Enugu State University of Technology, ESUT, which is offering some of these conventional university courses yet retained her technology name. Further investigations revealed that ESUT is offering Law as a course and doesn’t affect or warrant their change of name in any sense. Why then do we have to opt for a change of name?” the students’ union queried.

It urged the governor to look inward and consider better recommendations on how the institution could progress.
