Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State’s incessant request to for the striking staff of LAUTECH has been denied again.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, has insisted that its members would not return to work, unless their demands from Oyo and Osun State Governments are met.
This was disclosed by the Chairman of ASUU, LAUTECH, Dr Abiodun Olaniran, while speaking in Ibadan on Tuesday.
“Issue of ultimate survival of the institution as a proper university in the comity of other universities elsewhere” was never negotiable.
“While ASUU is eager to put this ugly situation in LAUTECH behind us, we are interested in a honest and holistic address of the issues that forced us to proceed on the current strike.
“It is gratifying that even the visitation panel set up by the owner states clearly called attention to this problem,” Olaniran said.
