Academic activities have been paralysed at the Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo, LagosÂ State as the strike embarked upon by the institutionâ€™s branch of Academic Staff Union ofÂ Universities, ASUU, enters its second week.

Chairman, LASU branch of ASUU, Dr. Akinyemi told P.M.NEWS that his members have vowed notÂ to go back to lecture rooms until the governor, who is the visitor to the university, wasÂ ready to meet their demands, adding that there will be no further negotiation that doneÂ by the national body of ASUU.
