LASU Workers Protest Resumption, Slam LASG

Daniel Ojukwu

The four Staff Unions of the Lagos State University, Ojo, have today staged a protest against resumption of academic activities on campus as instructed by the Lagos State Government.

The protesting workers locked out Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagboun​, and students to prevent them gaining access to commence learning activities.

Involved in the protest are the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union, and the National Association of Academic Technologists.

The protest which began as early as 7am, was gathered to have been motivated by the non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos State Government over a year ago.

Efforts by Fagboun to calm he protesting workers fell on deaf ears as they refused to budge.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had announced the resumption of Lagos State institutions on September 14, but it is gathered that similar protests are being held at other institutions across the state.
