ASUP threatens to shut down all Polytechnics across the country

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) on Friday threatened to shut down all Polytechnics across the country if the Federal Government fails to meet up with its demands.

The ASUP President Comrade Anderson Ezeibe made the threat while addressing Journalists at the end of the Union’s 102 National Executive Council meeting in Yola the Adamawa State capital where members of the Union displayed placards with various inscriptions to drive home their demands.

According to him, ASUP is set to resume its suspended industrial strike action by reconvening in a month’s time to make that decision.

Items under the union’s demands include; the non-release of the revitalisation funds for the sector, non-release of arrears of the new minimum wage, and non-release of the reviewed nomination instruments for institutions and Managements as well as programmes accreditation among others.

Ezeibe said the suspension of the 61-day long industrial action on June 10, 2021, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the government was only for a period of three months, was principally in consideration of appeals by students and members of the public.
