Students and staff of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, presently at the gate of the school protesting over unpaid salaries.
It was gathered that members of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and Educational Institutions, NASU, have locked all major gates leading to the institution, preventing vehicular movement into and out of the campus.
Confirming the development, the chairman of NASU LAUTECH Chapter, Mr Oyewande Adejumo said , the development was part of the ploy to express their grievances to the management over nonpayment of their August and September salaries.
‘We only locked the major entrances, we have allowed the students to come in to write their exams, and the lectures too but they all took alternative route through footpath.
Oyewande who spoke with our reporter in a telephone chat said, they were worried over the attitude of Osun state government when it comes to their turn to pay their dues to the institute
According to him “ In July we were told they paid N300M and we were all happy but after July they have refused to pay, if they don’t want the joint ownership to continue ,they should cede the institute to Oyo state and nothing will happen to Osun indigenes in Ogbomoso.
