LAGOS—Lagos State Government has appealed to striking Lagos State University, LASU lecturers to embrace dialogue instead of continuing with their industrial action which it described as “an unnecessary drawback for its spirited efforts to boost the academic standing and reputation of the institution.”

The government in a statement weekend, through the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Lateef Ibirogba, said the state government would not allow itself to be stampeded into acceding to demands that were inconsistent with its policy objectives, noting that it was imperative for Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, LASU to have a rethink on its proposed industrial action in the interest of the students and allow for dialogue.
