After their Congress, the lecturers issued a statement signed by the Chairman and Secretary, Professors Biodun Olaniran and Toyin Abegunrin, saying that any branch that broke the strike would lose out on the benefits of the struggle, such as infrastructure development.

ASUU said its members had decided to keep the strike going until it reached its logical conclusion, which they said was “imminent.”

Students should be considered beneficiaries of the ASUU strike, according to the union, because most state governments’ assistance in the form of subvention has been used as part-payment of salaries.

According to the statement, the Union was surprised to learn from the Commissioner of Education, Mr Rahman Abdu-Raheem, that the state had been paying LAUTECH a 100% subsidy when the University administration told the Union that only 55% came from the government.

According to the report, the university has sought the remaining 45 percent through Internally Generated Revenue.

The commissioner’s claim on subvention, according to ASUU leaders, has increased distrust between management and unions over who is telling the truth.

According to LAUTECH ASUU, capital project responsibilities have been completely abdicated and handed over to TETFUND and NEEDS assess projects related to ASUU’s struggles.

They went on to say that lecturers were sympathetic to students’ plight, but that the government should thank the union for its fight, which had resulted in TETFUND grants being used to train its members in human capacity development.
