The Awareness Advocacy Group (EAAG) has reacted to the faceoff between Oyo and Osun governments over Ladoke Akintola of Technology (LAUTECH).

It explained the real reason of crisis was funding disagreement among the owner states.

The situation has witnessed a new development as LAUTECH Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) locked the institution’s gate.

A statement on Wednesday by EAAG coordinator, Ayokunke Olusoga, urged the states to end the crisis soon and amicably.

The body noted that the joint responsibility of LAUTECH was only to the Teaching Hospital in Osogbo and the University in Ogbomoso, and does not include the Teaching Hospital in Ogbomoso, exclusively owned by the Oyo government.

“From our findings, Osun is not responsible for the payment of salaries of of the Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso and we appeal to Academic Staff Union of () to stop playing with the lives of students and workers in LAUTECH”, it said.

“Osun and Oyo states had agreed to a template that will see Oyo pay salaries of workers at the University, Ogbomoso for six months, while Osun carries the burden of paying salaries of workers at the Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, also for a period six months and vice versa.

“But while Osun honoured the arrangement, Oyo at some point jettisoned it. From 2013 till date, only Osun has been paying salaries of workers at the Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, the only known to law and the Dental and Medical Council of , amounting to N16,604,510,806.12.

“The claim by ASUU that Oyo had paid from January to June , and as such, Osun should pay from July to December this year, should not be the case. Currently, Osun has paid the July and August salaries of workers at the Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, amounting to N465,480,475.31.

“It supported the university in Ogbomoso, with N300,000,000.00, in July, this year. In effect, what this means is that while Osun had cumulatively spent over N2billion on the institution from January to date, Oyo had only spent a little over N1billion.

“In 2017, Osun contributed N1,292,000,000.00 to the University alone, and N1,852,324,279.39 to the university’s Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, making a total of N3,144,324,279.39. Oyo contributed N717,888,795.00 to the university and nothing to the Teaching Hospital in Osogbo.

“In 2018, Osun contributed N2,365,678,157.96 to the Teaching Hospital in Osogbo and another N500,000,000.00 to the university, bringing total contribution for that year to N2,865,678,157.96. Oyo contributed N443,866,554.60.

“So far in 2019, Osun had contributed N1,890,515,268.18 to the Teaching Hospital in Osogbo and another N300,000,000.00 to the university in Ogbomoso, making a total of N2,190,515, 268.18. Whereas, Oyo had only contributed N1,109,842,227,” the statement added

COVID-19: Lagos to re-open schools if… — Education commissioner Bridge Pupils 300x200

STRONG indications emerged, yesterday, that officials of the Federal and Lagos State governments are working out guidelines for re-opening of schools, which closure was precipitated by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.
This came as the Lagos State Government hinted that there are plans to employ no fewer than 2,000 more teachers in its public primary schools.
Similarly, the state government, through the Office of Quality Assurance, has designed an initiative, tagged: ‘Read-Aloud, Lagos’, to create and stimulate the interest of school children in reading books.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Folashade Adefisayo disclosed this during an online show, Covinspiration show, moderated by a United Nations Youth Ambassador, Dayo Isreal, while giving scorecard of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration within the 360 days.
On the possible re-opening of schools, Adefisayo said: “Like other sectors already approved by the Federal Government to reopen, the state government is meeting with officials of the Federal Ministry of Education to design guidelines that must be adopted before the schools will be re-opened.
“We are watching the behaviour of the pandemic to see what happens next and we are working with the Federal government on the re-opening of the schools in the country as soon as possible.
“This is not a decision that any state can unilaterally take on its own. If we are certain that the children are safe, we will reopen the schools for learning to resume.
“We are already working with the Federal Ministry of Education and they are working with National Center for Disease Control, NCDC, on the guidelines that could be adopted when the need arises for the schools to reopen.
“After the protocol is completed and health officials assured us that the coast is clear, we will give the schools some days to adjust their premises in accordance with the guidelines on commencement of academic activities.”
On the recruitment plan of teachers, Adefisayo said: “We have concluded the recruitment of 1,000 secondary school teachers. And we are currently working on the recruitment of 2,000 teachers for public primary schools.
“We are looking at employing teachers every quarter because the rate of retirement of teachers is very high in Lagos. The administration has granted the ministry permission to replace retired teachers.
“Aside from recruitment, we have spent a lot on the training of current teachers to improve their teaching skills in classrooms. And this COVID-19 period was the time when we were able to do a lot of things in the education sector of Lagos state.”
On Read Aloud Initiative, the Director-General, Office of Education Quality Assurance, Mrs. Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, said: “As an education quality assurance person, I was moved by the conviction that children perform better when they are led in the act of reading by someone else.”
Therefore, Reading-Aloud is expected to be the most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success.
