The Governing and management of the Lagos State University (LASU) have directed that the University be reopened for both academic and administrative activities with effect from Monday, May 18, 2015.
A circular by the University management, enjoined all staff and students to go about their normal activities, in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility with the hope that all outstanding issues would be resolved in due course.
Recall that on Monday, March 23, LASU authorities had in a statement, directed students and staff to vacate the campus immediately, on an election recess, noting that the resumption date will be announced later.
However, students of the institution, on Friday, May 1, went on a protest to Governor Babatunde Fashola’s office at Alausa Secretariat, demanding for the reopening of the school.
But, the state government on Tuesday, May 5, said the indefinite closure of the institution will continue until the staff unions, students and management agree to maintain peace henceforth.
