The University is jointly owned by two ACN controlled states.
Former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, has been appointed the Chancellor of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho.
Mr. Tinubu’s appointment was contained in a statement issued in Ibadan on Tuesday by Festus Adedayo, the Special Adviser on Media to the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
The statement stated that Oyo and Osun States, which jointly own the university, took the joint decision. Both states are controlled by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the party which has Mr. Tinubu as its leader.
LAUTECH was established by the old Oyo State (now Oyo and Osun State) in 1988.
According to the statement, the choice of Mr. Tinubu, a financial expert, accountant and administrator, 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 ingenuity and vast 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.
