The University is jointly owned by Osun and Oyo governments.
The Chief Medical Director of LAUTECH, Femi Fadiora, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Osogbo.
Mr. Fadiora said that the July salary was to be paid by the Oyo Government, adding that the delay prompted the Osun Government to intervene.
He said the hospital is jointly owned by the two states who share the responsibility of salary payment; with Osun paying the salaries for January to June while Oyo pays the balance.
“Governor Rauf Aregbesola should be commended for his intervention.
“The governor appreciated what we are doing at LAUTECH Teaching Hospital and he has once again demonstrated his commitment to the health sector,’’ he said.
Mr. Fadiora, however, expressed optimism that ”the delay in the payment of July salary will not repeat itself in respect of August salary.”
”Oyo State is also responsible and I am confident that by the end of August, all will be well,” Mr. Fadiora added.
