The four staff unions at Lagos State University , Ojo have locked out their Vice- Chancellor , Prof . Olanrewaju Fagboun , and students as the university resumes today after the coronavirus break.
The unions involved in the protest are the Academic Staff Union of Universities , the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities , Non – Academic Staff Union , and the National Association of Academic Technologists .
At 7 am , members of the unions stood at the gate and prevented members of staff from gaining entry into the University .
They were protesting non -payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos State Government over a year ago .
They claimed that other Lagos State workers had received the increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos State were yet to be included .
Fagboun made attempts to appeal to the unions but they didn ’t oblige him.
Ademola Adekoya, the spokesman of the institution who confirmed the development, testified that even as at the time of filing this story, all students and other staff of the varsity are still being locked out, including the Vice-Chancellor who we even learned has deployed all diplomatic and administrative entreaties to placate the aggrieved union members have so far fallen on their deaf ears.
