The Academic Staff Union of Universities, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) chapter, on Wednesday, suspended its 17-day-old lecture boycott.
The union embarked on a boycott of lectures on Monday, November 18, due to non-payment of salaries owed.
In a telephone interview with the ASUU Chairman, LAUTECH chapter, Biodun Olaniran, he said the union has decided to resume academic activities to “honour” Governor Seyi Makinde ”and his requests”.
“We have agreed to put an end to the lecture boycott that has been on since November 18th following Governor Makinde’s visit to LAUTECH,” he said. ”He has promised to pay two months salary and with this in mind, the union thought it best to resume academic activities. This is just a way of honouring him.”
