The management of Ladoke Akintola University (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho has ordered the staff and students of the institution to resume academic activities, ignoring the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.
The administration in a statement signed by LAUTECH’s Registrar, Kayode Ogunleye on Thursday, requested the staff and students of the institution to resume academic activities on Thursday, May 26, 2022.
The statement added that the resumption would be for the continuation of the first semester of the 2021/2022 session, adding that the amended academic calendar would be made available soon.
LAUTECH had joined the ongoing ASUU strike which commenced in February 2022.

The order given by the management of LAUTECH is against the stand of the striking lecturers.
