While the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU remain on strike with many students back at home, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) is reportedly set to embark on a nationwide strike from Wednesday, 12th December,2018.
Speaking over the already escalated issue, the National President of ASUP, Usman Dutse revealed that the drastic move had become imminent because the Federal Government had failed to meet the demands of the polytechnic lecturers.
Prior to this impending strike, the union had on 2nd October issued a 21 day ultimatum to the government before it extended it to November but did not eventually go strike.
Mr Dutse said that the proposed strike later this December would be total and indefinite. This further emphasizes 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,” he said.
