Amidst the alleged rift between the Management of the Lagos State University (LASU), and the institution’s branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the branch Secretary Dr. Tony Dansu, has pleaded with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to intervene in the case of the dismissed executive members of the union.
Dansu, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos, made the plea following the dismissal of three executive members of the union and five other lecturers sacked by the university’s Governing Council.
NAN reports that the council had, at its 122nd meeting on September 12, promoted 31 academic staff and 346 non-academic staff.
The council also approved the dismissal of eight academic staff and three non-academic staff.
Their offences bordered on allegations of absconding from duty, certificate falsification, theft of confidential documents, sale of marks, among others.
His words, “We have written several letters to the governor and we know that he will come to our aid, because he does not support impartiality.
“Our dismissal was a struggle between the truth and falsehood, which is quite unfortunate that we found ourselves in this university system.
The ASUU leader explained that the Lagos State House of Assembly had, three weeks ago, invited the union and the university management to address the issues.
The union leader called on both parties to bury the hatchet and settle.
