In a move that was nothing short of defiant, The management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) has opted out of the ongoing strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)
This was made known in a statement released on Thursday by the university registrar, Kayode Ogunleye.
Ogunleye explained that the resumption was for the continuation of the academic activities for the First Semester of the 2021/2022 academic session.
‘Upon the directive of the Visitor to the University, the Management hereby informs all staff and students that the university will continue its academic activities for the First Semester of the 2021/2022 Academic Session on Thursday, May 26, 2022.
‘The amended Academic Calendar for the semester will soon be made available. Staff and students are hereby enjoined to abide by this directive,’ the Registrar directed.
However, the ASUU branch of the state owned university has said that lecturers won’t engage in academic activities despite the management’s call for staff and students to resume.
The ASUU chairman, LAUTECH branch, Dr Biodun Olaniran gave the reply in a statement issued today on behalf of the union.
Speaking further, Dr Olaniran said they will return to work only when the national body calls off the industrial action.
Dear LAUTECH students, we know this back and forth isn’t what you bargained for but what can you do about it?
