The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso chapter, has warned parents and guardians not to allow their children to be used against lecturers in the institution.

The union gave this warning in a reaction to media reports that the institution had resumed for the 2018/2019 academic session on Monday.

The union in a statement jointly signed by its Chairperson and Secretary, Dr. Biodun Olaniran and Dr. Toyin Abegunrin, respectively declared that the chapter remains resolute to the decision of the national body.


The union in the statement said: “It is surprising that the management that has barely one month to the expiration of its tenure would want to create friction among members which has never happened in the 29 years of existence of the University”.

It added: “There are no academic activities going on at LAUTECH as the union is still on national strike, which has been complied with by our teeming members. As far as the union is concerned, there are no academic activities going on at LAUTECH as the union is still on national strike.


“However, the union is monitoring the activities of the University management at sowing the seed of discord among members, which the Union would use all instruments at her disposal to forestall.

“It is surprising that the management that has barely one month to the expiration of its tenure would want to create friction among members which has never happened in the 29 years of existence of the University. At the appropriate time, the motive for this unbecoming acts and the creation of crisis would be known to the public.

“Representatives of Ogbomoso Parapo and Parents’ Forum met with the leadership of ASUU, LAUTECH chapter today 7 January 2019 to discuss their involvement in the on-going national strike of ASUU.

“At a meeting that lasted more than 2 hours, the position of the union in the spirit of national struggle of ASUU was explained. At the end of the meeting, the group was satisfied with the explanations of the lecturers for their participation in the strike, which is hoped to be resolved very soon.

“Therefore, the union commended the parents for their understanding, urging them not to allow anybody to use their children against their teachers, noting that the Union is still on national strike in LAUTECH.

The union recalled that had been in the eye of the storm for quite a while as a result of poor funding by the owner states that made payment of salaries difficult at a period, adding that laboratories and workshops were ill-equipped for practical in a science and technology university, simple drugs became unavailable in the university clinic among other needs.

The union added: “Nobody should be left in doubt that the recent attempt to break the strike so that students can resume and pay their tuition, is purely altruistic. We are aware that this is the transition period in LAUTECH, and the outgoing officers need to take their ‘take-home- perks of office ‘ aka severance package. Money has to be available to be able to do this before they leave office. The only sure source of such money is the almighty IGR.
