The Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union, (NASU), and the National Association of Academic Technologists prevented students from entering the Lagos State University (LASU), on Monday, due to their unpaid salaries by the state government.
This is following the Lagos state government directives for final year students to resume on Monday. However, LASU school gate was locked from students by the Unions as they protested.
According to TheCable, it was gathered that the University vice-chancellor, Olanrewaju Fagboun including students were all prevented by the union members from gaining entry.
The unions’ actions are as a result of the non-payment of salary increment assured by Lagos state government.
The union also affirmed that other government workers have received increment in salary excluding tertiary institution government workers in Lagos.
Later, student were addressed ensuring their resumption next week, Monday, 21st September.
