LAUTECH ASUU suspends 4 months strike

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology has suspended its four months strike after a meeting with its members at the university’s main campus in Ogbomoso

This will be the second time the academic staff union would suspend its strike which had spanned for about two years

ASUU’s Zonal Coordinator, Dr. Ade Adejumo, confirmed that the strike was spended with immediate effect, “but academic activities will kick off on Monday, October 23

“The zone will have to be briefed, national will have to be briefed, but the Congress has suspended the strike in principle, but full lectures will resume on Monday, he said

The suspension of the strike came on the heels of information that lecturers had started receiving their three months’ salary arrears

Over the months, there had been numerous resumption dates which the lecturers ignored

First, the university management widely publicised September 15 and October 3 for reopening the university and resuming academic activities, respectively

Although the gates of the institution were reopened as scheduled, lectures did not commence as the academic staff union refuted the announcement saying none of their issues had been addressed and that “strike is still in full force

” With mounting pressure from the agitated students, LAUTECH’s ViceChancellor Prof. AS Gbadegesin, once again, promised Monday, October 16, as an alternative resumption date

That date also passed, to no avail

However, the students were confident that this new date by ASUU would not be jettisoned again
