The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare, has said the crisis rocking Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso is unfortunate but surmountable.

Dare made the disclosure during a courtesy call on the Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Michael Ologunde, on Saturday in Ogbomoso.

it was reported that the institution co-owned by Oyo and Osun States had been battling with a crisis over the ownership.

He said that the problems bedeviling the institution were surmountable, assuring them that the university would rise again and a lasting solution to the incessant closure of the university, which he described as a model.

He said that LAUTECH had consolidated on its leadership position as a University of Technology.

Dare called on stakeholders to collectively work towards returning the institution to the period of uninterrupted academic activities.
