Polytechnic lecturers begin strike



The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has announced the commencement of an indefinite strike.

Anderson Ezeibe, President of the union, announced this at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday morning.

Last month, the ASUP President, Mr. Anderson Ezeibe announced the strike during the end of the National Executive Council meeting held in Katsina adding that the strike became necessary following the inability of government to implement agreements reached with the union.

Mr Ezeibe at the press conference said “Our grievances also include the non-reconstitution of governing councils in federal polytechnics and many state-owned institutions leading to the disruption of governance and administrative processes in the institutions since May, 2020.”

“This has also undermined the renegotiation of the union’s 2010 agreement with the government which was unilaterally suspended by the government for over two years now.”
