    ASUU Strike: ‘We Are No Longer at Ease’— LAUTECH Students Beg Gov. Makinde

    Students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, has on Tuesday, urged Governor Seyi Makinde to rescue the university from the ongoing solidarity strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the institution.

    The students, under the aegis of Students’ Union Government (SUG), said they wanted to go back to school.

    In a statement signed by the SUG President, Anuoluwa Adeboye and Public Relations Officer (PRO), Gabriel Love Michael, which was made available to The Guardian in Ibadan, yesterday, the students lamented that the industrial action is threatening their academic activities.

    They said the strike was dangerous and horrendous for them.

    “The strike embarked upon by ASUU reached its 79th-day today (Wednesday) without the Federal Government giving a listening ear or showing great concern for their complaints.

    “However, due to this strike, which ASUU LAUTECH is being part of, the smoothly running academic calendar that students have been enjoying since the inception of Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration has been distorted by the solidarity strike and as such, the Harmattan semester for 2021/2022 session, which ought to have ended on May 2, 2022, has been paralysed.

    “Now, the involvement of ASUU LAUTECH is not only dangerous for the Ladokites but also horrendous for the institution . We are poised towards the rectification of the institution and a better educational system for all.

    Similarly, Lagos State First Lady, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, has appealed to all stakeholders in the education sector to work towards resolving the prolonged strike embarked upon by ASUU, describing the situation as a ticking time-bomb that must be urgently addressed.

    In a statement, yesterday, she made the appeal at a special celebration hosted by the Lagos State first family and the state government at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja, to commemorate the end of Ramadan.

    The governor’s wife also admonished the youths to shun all ungodly, immoral and bestial acts, just as she urged parents to pay closer attention to issues affecting their children.

    She said beyond Ramadan, it was important for people to imbibe and sustain the principles of the holy month.
