FEDPOFFA To Go On Strike As ASUP declares Nationwide Strike April 6

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) has declared a nationwide strike from April 6, 2021 over alleged ‘’culture of neglect by government on issues affecting the technological education sub sector.’’

Anderson U Ezeibe, the ASUP President, told newsmen at the end of the 99th meeting of the National Executive Council of the union at Hassan Usman Polytechnic, Katsina the industrial action was informed by six key factors affecting polytechnic education.

He stated government has consistently failed to address them over the years.

The issues, according to him, include non- implementation of ASUP/FG agreement of 2010, non-payment of salaries and arrears of the new minimum wage in some state-owned Polytechnics, among others.

While also admitting a meeting with the Federal Government has been held in October 2020 on some of the pending issues, the union however insisted the outcome of the meeting was a write off as government failed to implement the resolutions reached.

The union further listed 10 conditions under which the proposed April 6 industrial action may be called off to include: Implementation of the NEEDS Assessment report of 2014, reconstitution of the Governing Councils of Polytechnics, release of Promotional areas in federal Polytechnics, among others.
