Following the breaking of the news that Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) has been reopened after 8 months, students and observers alike have begun to react.
It will be recalled that the school was closed down after its staff embarked on a strike action following the non-payment of the salaries of the workers.
What ensued after was eight months of going back and forth between the Oyo state government and the Osun state government, as both state are joint owners of the school.
News however filtered in today, as confirmed by the Vice-Chancellor, that the school has received N500 million to pay salaries of workers.
This was followed shortly by news of the reopening of the school (as seen on the school’s portal) and people have been reacting ever since.
Below are some of the reactions
LAUTECH, finally. After 8months.
