Reports say the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Ladoke Akintola University of Technology has suspended its four-months-long strike after a meeting with its members at the university’s main campus in Ogbomoso on Tuesday.
This will be the second time the academic staff union will be suspending its strike which, in total, spanned more than one year.
LAUTECH ASUU Zonal Coordinator, Dr. ADE ADEJUMO, was quoted in the reports as confirming that the strike had been suspended with immediate effect but academic activities will kick-off on Monday, October 23.
The suspension is coming following news that the lecturers have started receiving their three months’ salary arrears during the weekend.
Students would hope this latest development end the crisis in the institution as numerous resumption dates in the past turned out to hold little water.
