The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) on Monday prevented the resumption of the Lagos State University (LASU) over the payment of the minimum wage.
According to Punch, four staff unions including the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the National Association of Academic Technologists locked out the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olanrewaju Fagboun and students as the institution prepared to reopen after the lockdown imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Members of the unions were spotted in viral videos as they stood at the gate and prevented other members of staff from gaining entry into the campus. They reportedly claimed that other Lagos workers had received salary increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos state were yet to be included..

Recall that in a recent town meeting in Illorin, the Academic Staff Union of Universities had asked the Federal Government to honour the agreement it had with the union before making any announcement on the reopening of the universities.
It added that it would unfold its next agenda if the Federal Government refused to negotiate the 2009 agreement signed by both parties.
