BREAKING: Vice-Chancellor, students locked out as ASUU, NASU members protest in Lagos University

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) have locked the main entrance of the Lagos State University (LASU) over the payment of the minimum wage.

The free flow of vehicular movement was hindered by the protesting members who gathered as early as 7:00 am and prevented both students and lecturers from gaining entrance.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olanrewaju Fagboun was also locked out of the school premises.

All attempt by the Vice-Chancellor to dialogue with NLC, ASUU, NASU members was not successful, as they insisted that no one will be allowed into the university premises until their demands are met by the state government.

The unions claim that an increment in their salaries was promised by the Lagos State government more than a year ago and the promise was yet to be fulfilled.

It would be recalled that the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu two weeks ago announced that tertiary institutions in the state will be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after being shut for six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
