The Lagos State University (LASU) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has agreed to comply fully with the nationwide lecturers strike declared by the overall body within 48 hours.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Dr. Adeolu Oyekan, Assistant Secretary, ASUU-LASU chapter made this known during an interview in Lagos on Monday.
“Already, there is a substantial compliance from our members but for the sake of formality, we will convey congress within the next 24 to 48 hours to brief our members.
“Our members from the feelers we got so far had complied but we expect compliance from tomorrow,” Oyekan said.
Mr. Oyekan stated that LASU was known to always comply with the directive of its national leadership and do not anticipate any breech from its members.
“Any of our members you may see around now are probably those who are yet to get information of the strike. For those who have received the information, they have started staying off the classroom even before we call the congress,” he added.
