“Sole ownership of LAUTECH and creation of more faculties will tremendously increase the intake of the school and economics benefits of Oyo State and Ogbomoso in particular.
“The on-going Ogbomoso/ iseyin Road is a blessing not only for the communal uses but the farmers along the axis that now have hope of getting their products to urban markets for value chain.
“I urge my supporters throughout Oyo state to join hands in supporting this government of Engr Seyi Makinde in developing Oyo State beyond 2023.”
