LASU Lecturers Join ASUU Nationwide Warning Strike.
Lecturers of the Lagos State University (LASU) on Wednesday complied with the one-week nationwide warning strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The LASU-ASUU Chairman, Dr Isaac Oyewunmi, told reporters in Lagos that academic activities in the university had been paralysed.
He said that the chapter held a congress on Tuesday to discuss the strike, and that a notice was sent to its members and the university management on the commencement of the strike.
“There is no report of any infraction within the chapter; all members have complied as directed by the national body,’’ the chairman said.
In her reaction, Miss Stella Nwachukwu, a student of the university’s Department of Microbiology, said that the strike was unfortunate, saying that it would affect students.
Nwachukwu urged the Federal Government to meet with the ASUU leaders and honour the agreement it had with the union in 2009 to stop the strike.
It would be recalled that ASUU had declared a one week warning strike on Tuesday to press home its demand for implementation of an agreement it reached with the Federal Government in 2009. (NAN)
