ASUU AND NASU protest, vice chancellor and Students locked outside in Lagos state university (photos)

Academic activities at the Lagos State University LASU failed to resume today September 14 as aggrieved members of 4 unions within the institution barricaded the doorway of the school preventing the Vice-Chancellor and students from gaining access into the premises.

The unions involved within the protest included the academic Staff Union of Universities, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union, and the National Association of academic Technologists.

The aggrieved members were protesting the? non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos government over a year ago. They claim? other government workers have received the increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos State were yet to be included.

All attempt by the Vice-Chancellor to dialogue with NLC, ASUU and NASU members wasn't successful, as they insisted that nobody will be allowed into the university premises until their demands are met by the government .

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu two weeks earlier announced that tertiary institutions within the state are going to be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after being shut for 6 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
