Lecturers at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso have suspended their eight months old strike.
The ASUU Chairman of the school chapter, Dr Biodun Olaniran, announced the suspension of the strike in a statement issued today in Ogbomoso.
ASUU said that the strike was suspended following the union’s congress held on Tuesday at the university.
“After comparing the demands of the union and what the management has met out of the demands, and after extensive deliberations on the struggle so far, the union has resolved to suspend the strike immediately,” Olaniran said.
The institution had been shut since the lecturers went on strike eight months ago.
The union had embarked on the strike over unpaid salaries and allowances, as well as the failure of the owner states of Oyo and Osun to release subventions to the institution.
