ASUP To Embark On Indefinite Strike.

This is to inform you that the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has connfirmed that they will on February 25th embark on an indefinite strike.

The union had earlier on February 11 issued a two weeks ultimatum urging the federal government to immediately implement the agreement it reached with the union which led to the suspension of its strike last July.

According to president of ASUP, Comrade Chibuzor Asomuga, while speaking with journalists in Abuja at the weekend at the end of the national executive council (NEC) meeting of the union frowned over the government’s failure to implement the agreement it reached with the union.

According to him, ASUP suspended the strike in July 2014 based on the plea of the Hon Minister of Education, Alhaji Ibrahim Shekarau who then requested for a three month moratorium to enable him tackle the lingering problems.

However, since the suspension of the strike none of the issues has been addressed to a logical conclusion.

It was learnt that other resolution reached at the
end of the NEC included that “the Federal Government should, without further delay dissolve the Governing Councils of the Federal polytechnics Oko and Ado Ekiti as they have become burdens rather than solutions to the myriad of problems bedeviling the sector.

“That the circular issued by the Ministry of Education suspending the implementation CONTISS 15 Migration be withdrawn with immediate effect as the suspension is ill-timed and counterproductive and will create further tension in the sector.

“That Managements and Councils of Polytechnics in Nigeria must desist from interfering in ASUP activities in their Institutions and stop forthwith the intimidation of staff who insists that proper things be done.”
Where are we heading to?? Nigerian Education system needs to be revive and restructured.
