The governments of Oyo and Osun States have appointed former Lagos State governor and leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Chancellor of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho.
This was contained in a statement issued in Ibadan by Dr. Festus Adedayo, the Special Adviser to Governor Abiola Ajimobi on Media.
LAUTECH, a university jointly owned by the two state governments, was established by the old Oyo State in 1988.
According to the statement, the choice of Tinubu, a financial expert, accountant and administrator, was arrived at after extensive deliberations between the governments of the two owner-states.
The former Lagos State Governor is expected to bring his administrative ingenuity and vast experience in public management to bear on the running of the institution and reposition it to meet the standard of its peers all over the world.
