THE Lagos State University (LASU), which has been shut for over two months, will be re-opened in the next one week.

Special Assistant to the Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola, on Education, Fatai Olukoga, who disclosed this in Ikeja, said that those involved in the LASU crisis had allowed it to drag for too long, hence the continuous delay of academic activities in the institution.

But, with the parties involved in crucial talks, the Olukoga has given a week deadline for the re-opening of the institution.

According to him, “The issue here is between the unions and the school management and the reason it has been dragging is the refusal of all the parties involved to reach a compromise.

“But, I can assure you that there is serious dialogue going on between the parties involved presently, and a compromise shall be reached sooner than later,” he explained.

Prompted to state the date he thought the institution would be re-opened, Olukoga stated: “Within the next one week, the issues would have been resolved and the school re-opened for activities. That is the situation right now as far as LASU is concerned.

“The students’ agitations are not quite difficult to handle. The major challenge is with the unions and I believe that an agreement will soon be reached.”
