LASU Staff unions protest, deny VC and other staff members access into the university

The Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State University ( LASU), Prof. Olanrewaju Fagboun has been reportedly locked out by the university’s staff unions as the university resumes today after the coronavirus break.

It was gathered that the unions namely; Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union, and the National Association of Academic Technologists started a protest as early as 7. am at the university’s gate and prevented members of staff from gaining entry into the University.

The unions are protesting the non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos State Government over a year ago.

They claimed that​ other Lagos State workers had received the increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos State were yet to be included.

The Vice- Chancellor made efforts to appeal to the unions but they didn’t oblige him.

It was gathered that the protest by the unions is holding across tertiary institutions in Lagos State
