Pressure is currently mounted on the leadership of the Osun State government, south-western part of Nigeria on the reopening of LAUTECH.

Students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, have
blocked the main entrance to Osun Government House, Oke-Fia, in continuation of their protest against non payment of
their lecturers, the development that has paralysed academic activities in the school.

The protesters, who blocked some major roads within Osogbo, the state capital, in protest, on Wednesday, in defiance to high
security presence, had laid siege on the entrance to Oke-Fia Govt House, in apparent move to stop Governor Aregbesola from
attending an event organised to mark his birthday holding within the state capital Thursday morning.

The protesting students had halted vehicular movement on Osogbo/Ifon/Ogbomoso
road, as many early travellers are trapped in the traffic gridlock.

A news correspondent gathered that heavily armed policemen manning the Armoured
Personnel Carrier, are right at the scene of the protest.

The Deputy Governor Mrs Titi Laoye-Tomori’s efforts to address the students was earlier
refuted, but was later made possible with the intervention of the commissioner of police in the state, Fimihan Adeoye, who
prevailed on the students to allow her speak.

Mrs Laoye-Tomori while appealing to the students, assured them that efforts were being made to find a lasting solution to the lingering crisis between the two owner
states of Oyo and Osun, and the striking lecturers.

She disclosed that a meeting will be held by house committees on educations of the two states and all concerns with a view to
ending the strike.
