The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Ladoke Akintola University of Technology has reportedly disrupted the ongoing second-semester examinations to begin another strike.
According to Premium Times, the secretary of the union, Toyin Abegunrin confirmed the development saying the university lecturers are embarking on a two-week warning strike to express their displeasure with the non-payment of salaries and poor facilities in the institutions.
He said, “The matter is in public domain. Yes, we commenced warning strike today,”
On Saturday, August 4, Pulse reported that LAUTECH students might suffer another academic upset soon due to the threats coming from the academic and non-academic staff of the tech-based university.
ASUU threatens to go on strike
According to Punch, the Joint Action Committee of the university on Friday, July 3, 2018, held a press conference where it announced that it could resolve to indefinite strike.
The committee, comprising the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, National Association of Academic Technologists and Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities, accused Osun and Oyo states, which own the institution of deliberately trying to incapacitate the school so that their state individual universities could survive, Punch reports.
