Implement NEEDS Assessment Report Of 2014 ASUP Tells FG

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has called on the Federal Government to implement the NEEDS Assessment report of 2014 to enable federal polytechnics in the country to feel the impact of the assessment.

Comrade Egbunu Danladi, addressing newsmen at Federal Polytechnic Idah (FPI) on Wednesday, explained that in 2014, the Federal Government set up a NEEDS Assessment team that went round federal tertiary institutions across the country with a view to addressing the high level of infrastructure decay in the institutions.

According to him, several years after the report was submitted to the Federal Government, no polytechnic in Nigeria  has benefited from the report.

‘‘The report was submitted and it was only universities that felt the impact, we are appealing to the Federal Government to implement the NEEDS Assessment report so that polytechnics too can benefit from it, he appealed.

The union also rejected in its entirety the plans by the Accountant General of the Federation to deduct over N19 billion on the pretext of recovering ‘Pay As You Earn’ tax liabilities from 19 polytechnics, describing the plans as dubious, painted in different colours of impunity to further pauperise the union members.

Meanwhile, ASUP also declared that the ongoing strike action remains until the union’s demands are met by the Federal Government, saying the culture of neglect of the sector must be reversed in the interest of Nigerians.
