University of Lagos main gate
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (Asuu), University of Lagos Chapter, has ensured total compliance with the strike directive given by the union’s National Executive Committee.
Dele Ashiru, the Chairman of the chapter, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos.
The Chairman said the chapter held a congress on Tuesday during which members resolved to join in the industrial action.
The union’s NEC declared a nationwide indefinite strike during a meeting at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo state, on Sunday.
The union is protesting poor funding of public universities, and the non-implementation of the 2009 agreement it entered into with the Federal Government.
Asuu is also protesting alleged government plans to introduce tuition and an education bank.
And Ashiru said the strike directive had been carried out fully in the institution.
“We have achieved 100 per cent compliance with the directive handed to us by the union’s executives,” he said.
