#ASUU update: UNILAG lecture rooms remain shut

by Akintomiwa Agbaje


Despite the expiration of the 7-day ultimatum issued to some members of the ASUU branch of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), the institution’s lecture rooms remained shut on Monday.

Last week, a faction of the union, were given a one-week ultimatum to resume work on Monday, December 2.

Michael Ogbeide, one of the leaders of the faction, refused to comment when asked about the next line of action if the lecturers failed to resume work.

According to reports:

In a telephone conversation with the Nigerian Tribune, on Monday, Ogbeide said since the Federal Government had made a new decision as to when the striking lecturers were to resume, they had no choice but to await government’s next directive.

“Government owns the school, not us, so we have to work with the decision of government.

“The decision of the owner (Federal Government) supersedes that of any pressure groups in the school. By now, schools are working their calendars and adjusting them in preparation for resumption, so one cannot just jump into the class and begin to teach,” he said.
