Lecturers at the Lagos State University (LASU) resumed work on Wednesday after the expiration of the one-week nationwide warning strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Dr Isaac Oyewunmi, the Chairman, LASU chapter of ASUU, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the resumption of work followed the directives of the ASUU national body.
“We have all resumed today (Wednesday) as directed by the national body because the one week strike elapsed on Tuesday by 11.59 p.m.’’
According to him, academic activities have returned and will continue until there is a contrary directive from the national body.
The chairman said the next line of action would be determined by the union’s national body after it meets to review the outcome of the warning strike.
Oyewunmi said following the warning strike, negotiation would continue between the union and the Federal Government.
“It is either the government is ready to meet our demands or face our next line of action as there is no going back on our demands,’’ he said.
A NAN correspondent who visited LASU confirmed that academic activities had resumed as students were seen across departments and faculties attending lectures.
ASUU declared the one-week warning strike which began on Nov. 16 to press home their demands from the Federal Government.
The demands include the implementation of the 2009 agreement as well as the exclusion of universities from the Single Treasury Account.
