ASUP To Begin Indefinite Strike By Wednesday

Over the weekend, Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP)  threatened to embark on indefinite strike from Wednesday, February 25,  if the Federal Government failed to attend to all pending issues raised in its ultimatum.

ASUP had on February 11, issued a two-week strike notice to the Federal Government to implement the agreement it reachedwith the union over four years ago, or it would compel members to down tools.

Addressing journalists after its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja, President of ASUP, Comrade Chibuzor Asomugha, also called for the immediate dissolution of Governing Councils of Federal Polytechnic, Oko, in Anambra State and that of Ado Ekiti in Ekiti State for allegedly creating avoidable problems in their institutions.

He listed some of the union’s unmet demands to include the continued discrimination against polytechnic graduates, both in the public service and the labour market in Nigeria and the non-release of white paper on visitation to federal polytechnics.

The lecturers also want more funding for polytechnics, appointment of competent people into governing councils and adequate funding of state polytechnics by their various owners.
