Again? LAUTECH ASUU Threatens Strike

Written by Elvis Boniface

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), has asked Governors Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo) and Rauf Aregbesola (Osun) to pay their 13-months arrears.

The union also threatened an industrial crisis, if the arrears were not paid by the two owner-states.

It said members are finding it difficult to survive as nobody would borrow them money.

The Chairman, Oyebamiji Oyegoke, said the call became imperative in view of the “bailout” given to states by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Oyegoke demanded regular payment of salary from monthly subventions and not from the internally generated revenue, which is to be used for other welfare and development projects.

His words: “The two owner states jointly owe workers 13-month salaries, forcing the university to keep the system running via financial interventions.

“The Oyo and Osun governments have abdicated their responsibilities of providing funding as expected for the university.
