All Polytechnics To Begin Another Round of Strike Across Nigeria

The Polytechnic lecturers will begin another round of indefinite strike across the federation from next week Monday, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP), declared in Abuja on Monday.

ASUP made the declaration as it warned that the Polytechnic education is seriously on the verge of collapse and needs emergency attention it deserves.

Addressing a press conference on the outcome of the Union’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, held in Abuja, ASUP President, Comrade Usman Dutse, said the polytechnic sector now needs over N8billion to be resuscitated.

He explained that the required money, which was put at N6.5billion in 2014 based on the government NEEDS Assessment survey report, had increased to over N8 billion due to the prevailing economic realities in the country.

He said the strike would be indefinite and comprehensive as the emergency NEC of the union had resolved to “commence an indefinite and comprehensive strike action effective 13th November, 2017.”

He warned that the action shall be sustained and would not be called off or suspended, until their demands are met.
