Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has approved the immediate payment of all outstanding salaries and allowances to members of staff of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital (LAUTEC), Osogbo.
This was contained in a statement issued in Ibadan Wednesday by the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin.
It would be recalled that the workers began an indefinite strike on March 31 over outstanding salaries and allowances.
The governor also approved the repositioning of the hospital to render services as a tertiary health institution.
The repositioning, according to the governor, would include a total upgrade of the structures at the hospital and the installation of some equipment.
All these, he said, would put the hospital in a better stead to deliver better services and fulfil its objectives as a tertiary health institution.
