A state university, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, being actively involved in ASUU strike, has impelled its students’ union to issue a 72 hours ultimatum for lecturers to pull out of the strike.
Geeky Nigeria reports that some state universities such as Abia State University (ABSU) and Delta State University (DELSU) have already pulled out of the ongoing ASUU strike.
LAUTECH students gave the ultimatum in a statement jointly signed by the Students Union President, Anuoluwa Adeboye, and Public Relations Officer, Gabriel Michael.
According to the statement, made available to Geeky Nigeria on Friday in Ibadan, LAUTECH lecturers were urged to follow the path of lecturers at the Kwara State University (KWASU) who didn’t join the strike.
“We are giving the leadership of ASUU LAUTECH 72 hours to borrow a leaf from ASUU KWASU that wrote a special letter to the National ASUU based on peculiarity in their institution.
“LAUTECH ASUU should opt out of this ongoing strike or else the students’ union will be left with no choice than to see ASUU LAUTECH as saboteurs to the progress of LAUTECH.
“They are doing these for their selfish interests and total confrontation will commence after the 72 hours ultimatum,” the statement read.
LAUTECH SUG said that they won’t accept their request to be met with an open dialogue on flimsy excuses.
