Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH could be renamed Ladoke Akintola University. This latest development is birthed by the plans to turn the institution to a conventional university by the school’s visitor, Governor Seyi Makinde.
It can be recalled that the Governor expressed his plan to convert LAUTECH to a conventional university while receiving the report of the state negotiation committee on LAUTECH in Ibadan about a year ago. There, he stated that the state would apply to the NUC for approval of the conversion of the institution.
Professor Oyelowo Oyewo, Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of Oyo State declared earlier today to Journalists that the state government will forward an amendment bill towards the renaming of LAUTECH to the Oyo State House of Assembly.
According to the University’s PRO, the resource verification teams from the National Universities Commission visited the school yesterday February 7th, 2022 to study the University’s preparedness to study new programmes for the proposed Departments of English and Literacy Studies, Philosophy, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Sociology and History.
