The Management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), has directed all the students of the institution to resume full academic activities on Friday, January 27, 2017, after 9 months of inactivity.
It will be recalled that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union, and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities in LAUTECH months ago declared a strike action over the lack of funds to run the institution and pay its workers.
