The management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), LAUTECH chapter, are currently at loggerheads over the new resumption directive issued to students on Wednesday.
The management on Wednesday through its Registrar, Jacob Agoola, issued a statement informing the students of the commencement of academic activities starting from January 3.
Mr Agboola in the statement said the decision to commence academic activities was reached by the University Management Committee at its meeting of Wednesday, January 2.
“The University Management Committee at its meeting of Wednesday, January 2, 2019, directed that all students be notified of the commencement of academic activities (course registration and lectures) on Thursday, January 3, 2019.
“Students are advised to check the University website for the academic calendar and lecture time-table for 2018/2019 Harmattan Semester. Best wishes,” he said.
However, ASUU, LAUTECH chapter, has kicked, declaring that the ongoing ASUU strike, which the union was part of, is still in force.
