Students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) have given the institution’s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) 72 hours to withdraw from the ongoing strike.

According to NAN, LAUTECH’s student union communicated the ultimatum in a statement jointly signed by Anuoluwa Adeboye, its president, and Gabriel Michael, the PRO.

The union urged the lecturers to toe the path of lecturers at the Kwara State University (KWASU) who opted out.

ASUU’s national body had commenced a one-month strike on February 14 due to its protracted disagreement with the government and subsequently extended this by two months after the government failed to meet its demands.

ASUU’s national body had commenced a one-month strike on February 14 due to its protracted disagreement with the government and subsequently extended this by two months after the government failed to meet its demands.

The LAUTECH students body said it would see ASUU in the institution as saboteurs and resort to a confrontation if it fails to withdraw from the strike embarked on by its national boy.

It said it had, on March 14 when the initial one-month warning strike ended, reached out to the leadership of ASUU in the institution to ensure sanity and bridge the communication gap.

The student union said the ASUU branch refused to grant their request for dialogue and gave “flimsy” excuses.
