LAUTECH ASUU Yet To Commence Academic Activities Despite Resumption, Gives Conditions

0 22
 The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomoso chapter, on Monday stated conditions that must be met before the ongoing industrial action will finally come to an end which will see academic activities fully resume in the school.

It will be recalled that the school announced January 27th, 2017 as the reopening date of the school.

However, ASUU rejected the resumption date, declaring that it had not called off its industrial action which began on Sept. 19, 2016.

According to the chairman of ASUU LAUTECH chapter, Dr Biodun Olaniran, while the school had resumed, academic activities were yet to commence as a result of the ongoing strike.

In his words, “Government should provide an agreeable plan of defraying the indebtedness of the outstanding N7.1 billion to the university.

“They should issue a clear commitment to the settlement of arrears of sundry allowances accumulated over the years,’’ he said.

“Salary is not the real issue. Our major demand borders most on the funding of the institution.

“Internally Generated Revenue can never be a substitute to the funding of the university,’’ he said.
