Written by Adekoya on July 12, 2019
Worried by the lingering industrial crisis rocking the Lagos State Polytechnic, LASPOTECH, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has constituted a Visitation Panel to investigate all contentious issues that are setting the staff union of the school against the management.
Governor Sanwo-Olu also ordered members of staff earlier disengaged by the management to forward their letters of appeal to the school’s Governing Council within seven days for a review of the process of their disengagement, but with a condition that the appeal letters get endorsed by the Head of Service to ensure transparency in the review process.
The Governor who expressed concern over the effects of the protracted crisis on the wellbeing of the school, noted that the prevailing situation had affected the morale of law-abiding employees of the institution, as well as the academic performance of its students.
The Governor said the Government was aware of the humiliation and denigration that the Governing Council and management of the school had endured in the last six months when this impasse began, with a call on all stakeholders to keep peace in the interest of the students.
He warned any member of the school bent on breaching the peace in the school, saying such person would be dealt with in accordance with the law.
The Governor praised students of the school for their peaceful conduct in the face of the “needless crisis”, wishing them good luck in their forthcoming examination.
Governor Sanwo-Olu who assured that normalcy would be restored and sustained in the institution, emphasized that safety and security of all members of the school during and after the examination will be guaranteed.
