Activities Picking Up In LASU As Non-Academic Staff Resume
Activities are picking up at the Lagos State University after both the academic and non-academic unions in government-owned universities in Nigeria called off their strike.
A visit to the institution last week by Bounce News showed there was no change in the level of activities in the institution after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) called off its one month strike.
But on Monday, non-academic activities commenced at the institution, paving way for student's return to campus.
The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of government institutions across Nigeria had downed tools for 10 days, but that strike was suspended on September 21.
The Health Centre, Certificate unit, Postgraduate school and Registry, which were closed, have been re-opened.
The unions under JAC include: the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU).
They had demanded for payment of earned allowances to members, a review of the governance system in universities and improved funding in line with UNESCO recommendations.
Other demands include provision of infrastructure in universities, payment of salary shortfall being owed members and implementation of the judgment of National Industrial Court on university staff schools, among others.
The Chairman of SSANU in LASU, Saheed Oseni, told newsmen that the non-teaching staff in the institution have resumed work as directed by the national and administrative heads.
