However, said the proposed strike would be “total and indefinite”.

His words: “This further emphasises the resolution of the 93rd National Executive Council meeting reached at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos last week.”

“Government has failed to implement and fulfil agreements it reached with the union as contained in the memorandum of understanding signed.”

The polytechnic lecturers will be joining their counterparts in the university who have been on strike for a month over the failure of the government to fulfil the content of the Memorandum of Action it signed with the union in 2017.
