Full details of the ASUP Strike news as reported by ThisDay Newspaper:
Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) has said it has no plan yet to call off its over two months old strike which it embarked upon on the 4th of October, 2013, expressing disappointment at government’s cold attitude towards polytechnic education in Nigeria.
National Publicity Secretary, Mr Clement Chairman, who disclosed this in Jos on Monday said the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union met at the Labour House in Abuja on the 12th of December, 2013 to review the progress made so far on the negotiation with government, and concluded that government has no iota of seriousness towards resolving issues with the union.
He observed that “the seeming preference for university education over polytechnic education in Nigeria by government is disappointing considering that polytechnic graduates have competed favourably well with their university counterparts at workplaces.
