Odimegwu said: “As a union, we have demanded and still demand the immediate recall of the unjustly dismissed lecturers at kogi State University and the payments of all their entitlements.”

He added that the crisis in kogi State University had been a prolonged incident as a result of to inadequate funding and erosion of University autonomy and academic standards by the state government.

Meanwhile, the ASUU state chapter also called on the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to tackle the current crisis at the Lagos State University (LASU) before it gets worse.

On LASU, the union urged Ambode to use his good office to arrest the ugly trend in the institution by directing the Governing Council and the university administrators to ensure amicable resolution of the crisis before it is too late.
