A call has come from the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), Ladoke Akintola University chapter on the two owner state governments to release the visitation panel report on the institution.

The call was contained in a statement issued by its chairman, Dr. Biodun Olaniran and made available to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Tuesday.
According to ASUU, it is pertinent that the report be released, because the content would go a long way in affecting their careers at the university.

“Why are the owner governments hiding the report from the public? Does the report contain facts which both governments are uncomfortable with? “Are the governments really interested in the panel’s report or they just put it in place to create impression that the LAUTECH issue was being attended to at that time.’’ASUU said.

ASUU insisted that the contents of the report be made available be any review can be made on the ongoing strike action embarked upon by the union. “Which union worth its salt will wald blindfolded into an uncertain future without demanding to know the details of a document that will dictate its future?” The union asked.

The owners states, Oyo and Osun had on October 19th, 2016 raised a visitation panel headed by Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), and has Mrs. A.O. Makanjuola, the Permanent Secretary, Oyo State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, as secretary. Other members include Rasheed Afolabi (Osun), Prof. Akinola (Osun), Prof. Sola Fajana (Osun), Dr Tunji Olaopa (Oyo), Prof. Ayo Salami (Oyo) and Mr. S.A. Raji (Oyo).

According to NAN, the management set January 27th, 2017 for the re-opening of the institution after eight months of protracted strike. ASUU, however refused to resume academic activities citing need for a guarantee for future funding of the institution by the owner states.
