The Asup and FG pranks has been ongoing on for a very long time and seriously, some students are no longer interested to read any latest ASUP news, because the story will always be the same! But we are not going to give, we hope the Federal Government will one day realize that the Youth are the future of tomorrow. Now we are going to see how long ASUP will survive without salaries. I see the end of ASUP 2014 Strike!
ASUP Says FG Enforced No-Work-No Pay Rule Since 21st March, 2014
According to Leadership Nigeria, FG has already enforced No Work No Pay Policy Since March… Read the full details below
The President of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Dr Chibuzor Asomugha, on Wednesday, 2nd April, 2014 said the Federal Government had stopped paying the striking lecturers salaries since March 21.
Dr Chibuzor Asomugha told newsmen in Abuja that the “no-work-no pay rule’’ had forced the union to device other measures of sustaining its members. He accused the Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, of “working at cross purposes with the union in the ongoing action instead of holistically addressing the issues surrounding it”
The ASUP president said the minister was not doing enough to resolve the face-off between the union and the government which led to the strike. Asomugha said government had so far failed to keep to its promises at different occasions. He said that President Goodluck Jonathan was kept in the dark on the union’s action, saying ASUP had lost confidence in the minister.
He, however, expressed the hope that the Minister of labour, Chief Chukwuemeka Wogu-led negotiating committee set up by Jonathan would bring an end to the strike.
The ASUP president said they might call off the 10 months old strike immediately the union got a feedback on the renegotiated demands from the new committee.

Nigeria School Input:
Now the foul play of ‘no-work-no-pay’ is gaining momentum in ASUP. So Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnic can now vouch to end the lingering strike immediately a response is being receive from Federal Government when fully you know that if you don’t halt the strike within a short pace, it would be a disservice for you and your minions as per salaries. Why not display your usual ‘all demands must be met’ principle?. I presume ASUP is selfish, inconsiderate, rash and callous in their demands.
