A team of security officials, including men of the Nigeria Police Force, have converged
at the main gate of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, Akoka, following a planned
protest by a group of students over the lingering strike action of the Academic
Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.


Recall that student groups had earlier declared mass protests across the country to hold
this Tuesday, in different locations including the University of Ibadan main
gate, UNILAG main gate, and in some places in Edo State.


The strike action of the lecturers which is entering its fourth month has left public
universities shut since its inception following the lecture’s demands, which
the Federal Government had, allegedly, not met.



ASUU had accused the government of poor commitment to the payment of academic earned
allowance; the continued use of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information
System and refusal to adopt the Universities Transparency and Accountability
Solution, among others.
