In a bid to resolve the present face-off between the management of Lagos State University, (LASU), and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU), LASU chapter, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola has set up an Executive Committee to resolve the issues.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Establishment, Training & Pensions, Mrs. Florence Oguntuase who revealed this yesterday at a press briefing said the state government is determined to end the crisis in the institution to allow for smooth learning process.
She said the lecturers embarked on an indefinite strike last Tuesday, due to failure of the institution management to meet their demands.
According to her, “At the moment the executive council led by Governor Babatunde Fashola has set up an executive committee to look into the demands of the striking lecturers.”
Oguntuase said the committee will be meeting today (Friday) with the aim to look into the demands of the striking lecturers and proffer solutions.
“We will forever be having issues with labour organizations. And they will forever be resolved. I don’t see a situation where we will wake one day and said that all the problems have been solved. As they come along, we will continue to solve them,” she added.
