2. The institution salary is been paid by the 2 States using this formula ➺ Jan to June is paid by Oyo while July to Dec is paid by Osun.

Meanwhile, it is believed that the two states will sort out any differences that they have regarding the ownership and funding of the school. Or do you think it is best for the two states to part ways with joint ownership of LAUTECH?
