The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) on Monday locked the main entrance of the Lagos State University (LASU) over the payment of the minimum wage.
The free flow of vehicular movement was hindered by the protesting members who gathered as early as 7:00 am and prevented both students and lecturers from gaining entrance.
Those locked out of the school include the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olanrewaju Fagboun.
It was gathered that the VC could not have a successful dialogue with NLC, ASUU, NASU members.
The members insisted that no one will be allowed into the university premises until their demands are met by the state government.
They claimed that an increment in their salaries was promised by the Lagos State government more than a year ago and the promise was not yet to be fulfilled.
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu two weeks earlier announced that tertiary institutions in the state will be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after being shut for six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
