Nigeria polytechnic lecturers begin nationwide strike today

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, said it will commence a “total and comprehensive indefinite” strike today over the federal government’s failure to fulfil the outstanding agreement made with the union.

The National President of the union, Usman Dutse, on Sunday said, there was a meeting between the union and the ministry of labour on October 16, with an agreement to develop a memorandum of understanding to resolve the issues but that they have not heard from the other party.
Dutse said another meeting with the federal government had been scheduled for Wednesday, November 15.
“All academic activities will be suspended during the strike,” he said.
“Our union is constrained to lament that our sector is on the verge of collapse and needs all the emergency attention it urgently deserves,” he added.
