Alake of Egbaland, Oba Michael Gbadedo on May 5th, wrote a letter to the Federal Government of Nigeria through the Office of Olusegun Williams, House of Representatives member representing Abeokuta South Federal Constituency of the state inwhich Senator Dr Tejuoso of Ogun Central was copied.
The subject of the letter written by the paramount traditional ruler of Egbaland was to wire the feeling of the people to the Federal Government in consequence of an order given by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu. The Honorable Minister for Education had early ordered Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) to stop running Management Courses.
Alake took the pain, as expressed by authorities concerned, to the table of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President (Ag. President) Yemi Osinbajo for the reversal of an order he said has started having negative effect on the academic concerned, community and the student of the College of Management Sciences.
It could be recalled that Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso has been on indefinite industrial action for the past One year. The institution, since June 2016, only called the students back to write their First Semester Examination in February, 2017 after which the institution had gone back on strike. The students of the institution had on several ocassion protested the unwanted 'stay at home action which was caused by the failure of Osun and Oyo state government constituted authorities to pay their monthly salary arrears now running to a year.
Protesters and Sympathizers at various times had called on Asiwaju Bola Hamed Tinubu to step into the matter and see the students back on campus for normal academic activities but to no avail had anything been heard. To put the agitation straight, Asiwaju Bola Hamed Tinubu is the Chancellor of Ladoke Aknitola University of Technology and a political leader to the two state governors who managed the affairs of the institution.
Points of contribution are:
If Alake of Egbaland, a traditional ruler could rose for FUNAAB, Why can't Asiwaju Tinubu restore the glory of LAUTECH ?
LASU case was resolve in bids to poll, Is LAUTECH issue being delayed for Oyo 2019 ?
