THIS is yet another latest news on ASUP STRIKE, and I hoped you will read it through… Even though it could be another FG vs ASUP Super Story Series. 🙂
However, from all indications, ASUP Strike is coming to an end soon. Just don’t give up on Polytechnic yet.
About 3 days ago, we published an article that ASUP will be holding another NEC meeting today, and that the Federal Government has agreed to sign MoU. If you missed it, you can Read it HERE.
From reliable sources, there are strong indications that the eight-month old indefinite strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, will be called off soon, as the Senate Committee on Education will hold a meeting with the union today 24th June, 2014.

Mr Chibuzo said and I quote: “the Senate Committee on Education has called us alongside other stakeholders with a view to resolving the issue we have been pressing for over a year now.
“We shall go to Abuja for the meeting but that is not an assurance that the strike will be called off today because even if we agree to call of the strike based on certain parameters, we shall still have to communicate with our members.”
On the issue of several other polytechnics pulling out of the industrial action, Asomugha told Newsmen that “I do not want to comment on that anymore because we have said several times that as much as we want most of our members to comply, we do not expect 100% compliance.
“There shall be another NEC meeting in YABATECH this week. There we shall decide finally what to do pending the outcome of our meeting with the Senators and the stakeholders.”
If you recalled, the Academic Staff of Polytechnic, ASUP had on Friday, 4th of October, 2013 embarked on an industrial action which has led to a total collapse of polytechnic education in Nigeria.
