The Academic Staff Union of Universities, Lagos zone, has faulted a local strike action in the Lagos State University over the payment of new minimum wage for higher institutions in the state.

The ASUU in a statement signed by the zonal coordinator, Prof. Olusiji Sowande, on Thursday described those behind the local strike as “a bunch of impostors.”

Sowande said the zone got a report of a purported local strike action in the university when the ASUU had been on an indefinite strike against the Federal Government’s alleged failure to implement the 2009 agreement it had with ASUU.

He said, “It is no longer news that our union has been on a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike occasioned by the Federal Government’s failure to implement the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement the 2019 Memorandum of Action, as well as forceful migration of our members in public federal universities to the highly problematic and illegal Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System.

“It is therefore amusing that a group parading themselves as ASUU-LASU executive under the leadership of one Dr Ibrahim Bakare, declared a local strike in the name of our Union, ASUU, on matters related to wages.”

Sowande said those claiming to be prosecuting the laughable strike in LASU were “unknown to any structure of our union.”

“The general public should please note that they are a bunch of impostors using the good name of ASUU to achieve their opportunistic goals and possibly gain legitimacy with Lagos State Government,” he added.
