• Following the Federal Government’s failure to implement the agreement it reached with the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), which led to the suspension of its strike last July, the union has resolved to resume the industrial action.

    The President of ASUP, Comrade Chibuzor Asomuga, who addressed journalists at the end of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union, expressed disappointment over the behaviour of the government.

    He said that the union agreed to suspended the strike last year following pleas from the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau who just resumed as minister then.

    Asomugha said the minister had requested for a three month moratorium to enable him tackle the lingering problems but none of the issues has been addressed to a logical conclusion.

    The union leader added that the polytechnic lecturers had therefore resolved that at the expiration of the two weeks ultimatum issued to Government beginning from 11th February, 2015 on the pending issues, ASUP shall embark on an indefinite strike action until all the ongoing anomalies in the Polytechnics are addressed and the 13 point demand pending before Government implemented.
