Protest as Governor plans to rename University
Students Union Government (SUG) of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso have advised the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to reconsider its decision to rename their institution.
The students made this know in a statement issued by their SUG President, Anuoluwa Adeboye, and the Public Relations Officer, Gabriel Michael, on Friday.
Reports emerged on Saturday that the governor had sent a bill to the state assembly on the proposed renaming of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) to Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso (LAU).
But the students claimed renaming the institution would do more harm than good as it would negatively affect the goodwill and strength the name has gathered over the years.
They urged the governor to look inward and consider better recommendations on how the institution could progress.
