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).


Dr. Isaac Oyewunmi ‎, Chairman, ASUU, LASU Chapter, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that academic activities in the university had been paralyzed.

Oyewunmi said that LASU lecturers’ compliance to the strike directive was total. 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. Miss Stella Nwachukwu, a student of the university’s Department of Microbiology, told NAN 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.

ASUU had declared the warning strike ‎on Tuesday to press home its demand for implementation of an agreement it reached with the Federal Government in 2009.
