Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) have locked the entrance of Lagos State University (LASU) over the non-payment of their minimum wage.

According to the recent report by Channels TV, members of both union gathered as early as 7:00 am to restrict students, lecturers and even the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olanrewaju Fagboun from gaining entrance.

They said unless the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu fulfills his promise of salary increment, no one would be allowed to enter the University premises.

In another reported by Punch Newspaper, ASUU reminded the Federal Government to honour the agreement it had with the union before thinking about the reopening of Universities in the country.

According to a statement from the National President of ASUU Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, “if the government refuse to negotiate, [they] will unfold [their] strategy” for them.

The Federal Government was believed to have an agreement with ASUU in 2009, but they are yet to fulfill their own past of the bargain.
