…Wants Ambode to resolve LASU crisis
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has urged the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, to recall its 150 members sacked at the state university.
The union also implored the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to address the current crisis at the Lagos State University (LASU) before it escalates further.
Addressing journalists in Awka, the zonal coordinator of, ASUU, Owerri zone, Prof. Ike Odimegwu, said the union would no longer condone such embarrassing situations.
He said the Kogi governor should tread the path of honour and reverse his “unwarranted provocations.”
Odimegwu said: “As a union, we have demanded and still demand the immediate recall of the unjustly dismissed lecturers at kogi State University and the payments of all their entitlements.
He said the crisis in kogi State University had been a recurring incident due to inadequate funding and erosion of University autonomy and academic standards by the state government.
On LASU, the union urged Ambode to use his good office to arrest the ugly trend in the institution by directing the Governing Council and the university administrators to ensure amicable resolution of the crisis before it is too late.
