Osun assures workers of job security over LAUTECH joint ownership dissolution

Workers of Osun extraction in the College of Health Sciences and LAUTECH ceded to Osun and Oyo have been assured of job security.

In a release signed by Osun State commissioner for information and civic orientation, Funke Egbemode, the government emphasised that there would be no intimidation or discrimination against them in the discharge of their duties.

The release reads in part “the agreement states that indigenes of Oyo and Osun State working in either of the two entities will retain all their rights and obligations stipulated in their letters of engagements, therefore the State Govt of Osun wishes to inform citizens that there is no need to fret about the dissolution, as all workers of Osun extraction are assured of the security of their jobs”.

It adds that “Osun Students will also not be subjected to fees or admission differentials. They will pay the same tuition fees as their Oyo counterparts.

“The agreement ceded the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital and all its assets to Osun. Therefore, all landed properties and movable assets located at the College of Health Sciences in Osogbo, including Mercyland Hospital and Ilie are now properties of the State of Osun.

“LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, which is an independent organisation, has not been affected by this dissolution, &will therefore continue to render necessary services to our people.

“Citizens are therefore advised to continue to cooperate with the Govt to develop our institutions”.

The release notes that the dissolution of the joint ownership became necessary as a result of governance and management challenges.
