The Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, and other workers’ unions in the school “are not aware” of the resumption scheduled for Friday.

The institution had earlier on Thursday directed undergraduates to “immediately resume,” and that academic activities would fully commence after the Independence Day celebration on October 1.

But Biodun Olaniran, chairman of the ASUU chapter of LAUTECH, told PUNCH that the union would not honour the directives of the school.

Similarly, Muraina Alesinloye, chairman of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) at the university, said none of the workers’ unions would resume because they were not aware of the resumption directive.

He was quoted as saying: “We (ASUU) will not resume until our demands are met. Until our demands are addressed, the strike continues.

“I am the chairman of SSANU, but I am speaking as the chairman of JAC now. We are not aware of the resumption and you will agree with me that you cannot obey any directive which you are not aware of.”

LAUTECH lecturers had embarked on the strike action on June 2.
