Crisis is looming again at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have threatened to frustrate academic activities if Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola refuses to pay their outstanding two months’ salaries by the end of September.
The Current Oyo and Osun State governments inherited unpaid salary arrears of eight months being owed LAUTECH academic staff.
ASUU claimed that Osun State Government which is scheduled to pay subvention between July and December 2019 only paid in July and refused to pay for August and September making payment of salaries impossible.
Rising from their Congress on Wednesday ASUU resolved to put the public on notice that it should not be blamed if academic activities become disrupted again.
In a release captioned “LAUTECH: Trouble Looming Again” signed by the ASUU LAUTECH Chairman and Secretary Drs Biodun Olaniran and Toyin Abegunrin, the Union accused Osun State Governor of making life unberable for them.
According to the Union, all entreaties to ensure that Osun State government pays outstanding salaries have not yielded any results.
The Union disclosed that members are owed six years unpaid Earned Academic Allowances, unpaid cooperative deductions and unpaid promotions arrears.
