Despite the directive by the Lagos State University Management that students and lecturers of the institution should resume on June 23, no academic activities has resumedin the school yet.
And the reason for this is not far fetched as the Academic staff said their requirements have not yet been met. The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo Chapter vowed to continue its month-long strike, until its demands were met.
They are demanding for the repeal of the no vacancy, no promotion policy of the university’s management, a reduction in the tuition fee hike and the implementation of the 65 years retirement age policy.
AdekunleIdris, branch chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities, LASU, said, “As it is known, ASUU-LASU went on strike for three demands. It is not only for school fee and even the school fee demand has not been met. Our demands are reduction of fee to N50,000 across board; abrogation of no vacancy no promotion policy; and the implementation of the University Miscellaneous Provision Act of 2012.”
He added that, “Our members did not go to the classroom for these reasons. Our congress will meet to review the fee reduction but the strike continues. The management has not taken any action on any of our demands. Students can resume but our members will not teach.”
