ASUP Strike: FG Stops Paying Lecturers As Parents Plead For End To Strike

share on:

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics strike has entered it’s 10th month, and parents have pled with the FG to end the strike as they stopped payment to the lecturers.

ASUP chairman Dr Chibuzor Asomugha told newsmen in Abuja that the FG has enforced a “no-work-no pay rule’’, which had forced the union to device other measures of sustaining its members.

He accused the Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, of “ working at cross purposes with the union in the ongoing action instead of holistically addressing the issues surrounding it’’.

The ASUP president said the minister was not doing enough to resolve the face-off between the union and the government which led to the strike.

  1. Federal government are adamant as to the union pleas. They ignore d simple fact that most polytechnic students are the ones making this country proud. They excel even when they take direct entry to other schools. They are ruining the life’s of young pple. An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Young girls are getting pregnant, guys are engaging them selves in all types of social ills and yet we complain. When will the federal government ever encourage education in Nigeria? They send their own children abroad! They should be ashamed! You are a leader yet u do little for your country! This is rubbish and unacceptable. This strike isnt supposed to last dis long if we had a prudent leader that understands the importance of education! M disappointed in this country! M so disappointed!

  2. KADPOLY STUDENTS ARE THE FIRST CLASS VICTIM OF THE ASUP STRIKE .THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY IS ON A MISSION AND HER MISSION IS TO SABOTAGE THE NIGERIAN POLYTECHNICS.I FEEL WE HAVE TO CONSIDER IF THE FIFTH COLUMNIST IS WITHIN THE ASUP BODY.
