The Lagos State University chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has come to a headlong confrontation with the management of the university again, this time over the Universities decision to not announce a resumption date after it closed down the school.
University's ASUU chapter challenge management
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, Lagos state University chapter has been at loggerheads with the university management over a lot of issues recently.
In a statement signed by the ASUU LASU chairman, Comrade Adekunle Idris, the union expressed concern that the open-ended recess was not only unwarranted and unjustified but it also constituted a disruption to the school calendar.
“The shutting down of activities in the university, when other institutions are undertaking academic activities, is an act of impunity that will adversely affect our students – the main purpose for which the university exists. By law, only the senate of LASU has the prerogative to adjust the academic calendar and declare a recess. This has not been done by senate”.
The union condemned the action as carried out by the management saying that there was no breakdown of law and order to justify the suspension of academic activities in the university.
