Bewaji spoke against the backdrop of a rumour that the institution was planning to increase tuition when students resume next Monday.

The council member, who is the national president of LAUTECH Alumni Association, said LAUTECH’s priority was to begin a hitch-free academic session.

He said: “There is no truth in the rumour that LAUTECH intends to increase tuition fee when students resume next week.

“As an association, we (alumni) support the re-opening of the school and students’ resumption next Monday. This is because students have suffered enough, having stayed at home for about 12 months. It is high time we allowed peace and normalcy to return to the university.

“We are happy with the readiness of governors of Osun and Oyo states – Rauf Aregbesola and Senator Abiola Ajimobi – for agreeing to support the university to pay three months each of the 12 months’ salary arrears owed lecturers of the university. The remaining six months will be restructured and paid in no distant future.”

Bewaji said the funds would enable the university to return to its normal academic duties as well as position it for greater challenges ahead.

On why the last agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) failed, the board members said: “What made the last agreement to fail was because of certain aspects of the White Paper, which negate the agreement earlier reached with them.

“I want to promise that this time round, with the calibre of governing council members, led by former Head of Service of the Federation (HOSF), Prof. Dapo Afolabi, we will make our word, our bound.

“We have started negotiation with relevant unions of the university as well as other critical stakeholders.”
