Seven months after its lecturers went on strike, academic activities are set to resume in Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomosho, (LAUTECH).

The management of the institution has announced that the school will be reopened on Friday, January 27.

The university has been shut down for over seven months after staff protested non-payment of salary arrears.

“All staff and students are hereby informed that the University will reopen for normal activities on Friday, January 27, 2017,” read a statement signed by J.A. Agboola, the registrar, on the university’s website.

“Students are to note the following for compliance: Friday, January 27: Resumption
Friday, February 3: Revision week ends.
Friday. February 10: Lecture free week ends.
Monday. February 13: 2015/2016 Harmattan Semester Examinations begin.”

The statement continued: “All students who are yet to complete their registration are to ensure that they do so and pay their tuition fee during the revision week.

“On behalf of the governing council, senate and management, headed by Prof. A. S. Gbadegesin, vice chancellor, we wish you all the best.”

Students of the institution had embarked on various protests against the indefinite strike and plans by the university management to increase tuition.

It was recently announced that the governors of Osun and Oyo gave N500 million to the institution for the payment of owed salaries.
