Speaking with newsmen after the peaceful protest, the Coordinator of Akure Zone of ASUU, Prof. Alex Odiyi, said that the neglect of LAUTECH had created problems for the union.

Odiyi, who led other coordinators and branch chairpersons of other universities in the protest, said the neglect of the university had led to a decay of infrastructure in the institution.

He alleged that the state governments had reneged on the Memorandum of Agreement signed with the union before the last strike was called off.
