Lecturers of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State (OOU) have commenced an indefinite sit-at-home strike, over the inability of the state government to fulfil its promises regarding a Memorandum of Understanding it signed with them in December 2015.
The decision was announced by the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU, OOU branch at the end of its congress, held at the institution’s permanent campus in Ago-Iwoye yesterday.
The union said the action became necessary following the inability of the university management to pay their July salaries, among other issues.
The union said the state government had abdicated its responsibility to the institution by failing to honour the 70:30 ratio contributions by government and OOU in salary payment.
The chairman of the union, OOU chapter, Dr Deji Agboola, said this while addressing journalists at the end of its congress yesterday.
