296 were at the junior cadre."

urged them to continue to be more committed to their respective duties.

of the LASU staff unions during the past administration of Prof. John Obafunwa.
The promotion issues, among other demands, engendered the
crisis that ensued between the university's workforce and the past

Prof. Obafunwa, but was yet to be approved by the council before the end of his
tenure on Oct. 31.
