Poly Lecturers Vow To Continue Strike Despite Meeting FG
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics on Tuesday met with the Federal Government, but said that its strike which commenced at 12 midnight would still stand.
The President of ASUP, Anderson Ezeibe, said this at the Federal Ministry of Education after a meeting with the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu.
He said the strike had not been suspended, adding that the meeting with the minister was the beginning of a resolution, “and until it has been satisfactorily resolved, the strike must go on.”
The ASUP President said the non-implementation of NEEDS Assessment report of 2014 in the sector, as well as the inability to release any revitalisation fund to the sector despite assurances since 2017 was one key factors for the strike.
However, the Federal Government said nothing would be impossible in reaching an agreement with the ASUP.
