The governor made the appeal on  Monday at  the inauguration of the Oyo State Education Trust Fund (ETF) held at the Governor’s Office in Ibadan.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that workers of the institution had embarked on a strike action over  unpaid salaries and subvention to the institution.

Ajimobi said the workers needed to end the  strike and allow  the students return to the  lecture rooms at the earliest possible date.

“The two owner states of LAUTECH are doing everything within our powers to quickly resolve the challenges associated with the institution.

“It is my hope that the striking teaching and non-teaching staff will give peace a chance and cooperate with us.

“There is the  need to end the strike and get our students back  to the lecture rooms at the earliest possible date,’’ he said.

He said a new Governing Council would in the next few days be  inaugurated to drive the institution toward  the   goal of becoming a university of global reckoning.
