ASUP State Conditions For Strike Action To Be Called Off

share on:

The Federal Government has been handed demands by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, vowing not to end the strike till they are met.

Stating these conditions, the ASUP chairman, Federal Polytechnic, Offa, Dr Sola Ojeniyi, said that the government should approve the establishment of the national polytechnic commission (NPC) and enforce the total removal of the dichotomy between university and polytechnic education before the lecturers strike will be suspended.

Dr. Ojeniyi lamented the government’s negligence towards polytechnic education in Nigeria and urged that proper funding should be directed to polytechnics.

“It is a symbolic display of apathy against children of the poor that were denied opportunity of university education and attempt to remove every dignity attached to their portion”, he said.
