PHOTOSPEAK: The Best State University In Nigeria (Opinion)

It's true that our beloved country is equipped with well over 150 Universities of which a greater percentage is owned by private individuals and the other by the Government, be it State or Federal Government. It's also true that majority of the institutions having dilapidated or failed infrastructures are those owned by the Government. The reason behind this is not far-fetched.

In this article we tend to celebrate LAUTECH, an institution which in my opinion, deserves the crown as the Best State University in the Country.

Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), formerly known as Oyo State University is a tertiary institution located in Ogbomoso , Oyo State, Nigeria . The university enrolls 30,000 students and employs more than 3,000 workers including contract staff.
