We are already aware that the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics have made a lot of promises to the Students that the strike will be called off this week, next week, bla bla bla! But this time, we think this is the real deal. (But don’t count on it, we are still in Nigeria and everything goes:) )
WE are reliably informed that the leadership of the Academic Staff Union Of Universities, (ASUU), Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnics, (ASUP) and College Of Education Academic Staff Union, (COEASU) will hold a crucial meeting today, 30th May, 2014 in a bid to find a lasting solution to the current impasse.
Below is the text message from ASUP Secretary General to her members…
“Just after the management of Akanu ibiam fedpoly unwana recalled their students for 2nd June to resume lecture 9th June, that evening a text was sent to Unwana Asup members saying,” A joint meeting of ASUU, ASUP & COEASU has been scheduled for Friday 30/05/2014 to find a lasting solution to the current impasse. Members are urged to remain steadfast in the struggle as we are almost there.
Please reject all forces & intimidation to suspend the strike at your various chapter; kindly ignore all rumors of suspension of strike, it is from mischief makers. We will keep you informed of any development. Thank you all. SG, (Secretary General)”
