According to the SSA­NU chairman, the meeting might have been conveyed to forestall another protest from his members, who had accused the university management of not work­ing towards ending the one-month-old strike by refus­ing to engage their leaders in any discussion.

Addressing newsmen be­fore the meeting with the university management, Saheed had said that in the last three years, SSANU had observed several prob­lems facing LASU and ir­regularities in the running of the institution which he described as unacceptable.
