LAUTECH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION SEEKS LEGAL ACTION AS A LASTING SOLUTION TO LAUTECH CRISIS
Yesterday, Monday June 19, 2017, the Alumni body in collaboration with all the staff unions on campus visited the great human right lawyer, Chief Femi Falana SAN, at his office in ikeja to seek legal action over the highhandedness and most importantly abuse of LAUTECH students’ right to education by the two owner governments.
The visit was led by the Alumni President, Mr. Babajide Bewaji, and in company of the Secretary, Mr. Oloso Kamal, SSANU Secretary, Mr. Hamamatsu Fajoye and the Nasu Chairman, Mr. Tunwagun.
After briefing the legal luminary on the current situation in LAUTECH, the great lawyer did not only show interest to take up the case but was highly optimistic that the case would be expeditiously instituted and that judgement will go the students and staff way.
Recall that the lawyer had recently criticized the educational policy in oyo state and also berated the attitude of the two governors towards LAUTECH.
In the same vein, the ASUU chairman along with the SANU chairman were both on air yesterday at FRESH FM to discuss about the state of things. The interview however, led to a serious debate and lot of arguement between the two men and the oyo state commissioner for education. But at the end of the day, the listeners especialy those who are properly informed about the LAUTECH crisis were able to know who’s fooling who.
Be that as it may, students were however able to wear smile on their faces yesterday when the good news eventually broke that the paramount ruler the OONI of ife has promised to donate 500k to support #FundLAUTECH and to put his weight behind the sustainability of the initiative.
The OOni of ife further expressed his utmost concern over LAUTECH lingering crisis and narrated that he has made tremendous moves silently, he assured that the crisis will be over earlier than anticipated.
While all moves are going on to rescue the institution, let not relent in supporting #FundLAUTECH initiative on all social media.
It will be good if every one can also come up with a different video clips and make it more virile on social media. I beileve with this, people would be able to listen to your story, experience in school and why they need to support the #FundLAUTECH innitiative.
