The Academic Staff Union of University, ASUU has cautioned the chairman governning council of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Ogbomoso to stop lying about the salary of workers being owed by the institution
ASUU in a press statement signed
Dr Ade Adejumo Zonal Coordinator, Ibadan Zone, ASUU in reaction to a statement credited to the Chairman, LAUTECH Governing Council as a fall out of the last warning strike and public protest staged by our colleagues in that University said workers are being owned 10 months salary
“It is very painful that Prof Dapo Afolabi, a seasoned academic, is allowing himself to be used as a conduit of public disinformation to shore-up the image of government that have proved irresponsible in the discharge of their statutory responsibilities to a public University like LAUTECH.”
” The union therefore calls on the public to disregard this lie as the facts are there that LAUTECH Staff are being owed 10 months’ salary arrears, promotion arrears, EAA etc. This fact has been severally acknowledged by the Council Chairman himself. ”
” We want to make it clear that we are academics and not politicians; therefore, the insinuation that ASUU is being used by politicians is a futile attempt to cast us in bad light. If the stock in trade of politicians is lying to the public, ASUU begs not to be drawn into the murky waters of their dirty politics.”
The union however promise to issue a comprehensive report on this latest assault on LAUTECH.
