Lecturers at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, have on Monday shunned academic activities in the institute.
Okay.ng understands that the resolution was due to the nonpayment of their three months’ salaries.
Biodun Olaniran, the chairman of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) LAUTECH chapter, said the decision was reached after reviewing the situation regarding the non-payment of three months’ salaries.
According to the ASUU chairman, apart from boycott of lectures, results of Rain Semester will be withheld while students’ project defense will be put on hold.
He said in quotes, “The Congress of ASUU met today Monday (18/11/2019) at 250 LT, Ogbomoso. After a thorough review of the resolution of the congress of Tuesday (05/11/2019), the congress resolved that:
“2018/2019 Rain semester results will not be released, No teaching of any form will be carried out. Final year project defence of 2018/2019 has been put on hold. The action starts immediately. Thank you.
“We demanded for 3 months of August, September, and October, 2019. But only August, 2019 was paid. 11 months is in total, but to avert the current crisis we demanded for 3 months.”
