According to the report reaching us, the meeting to resolve ASUP 2014 strike turns out bad as polytechnic lecturers accuse The Federal Government of Insincerity.

The ASUP/FG meeting was called by the federal government to resolve the 3-month-old strike embarked upon by Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, (ASUP) nationwide.

The F.G delegation to the meeting, held at the federal secretariat in Abuja, is led by the Education Minister, Nyesom Wike, while ASUP is led by its president, Chibuzor Asamogu.

The meeting went rowdy when the leadership of the National Association of Polytechnic Students, (NAPs), invited as observers to the meeting, accused the lecturers of fighting for selfish interests.

The ASUP members fumed and accused the federal government of inviting students to such meeting in order to harass lecturers.
The NAPS president, Ogbonnaya SUnday, however, also accused the government of insensitivity to the plight of students.

ASUP has been on strike since October demanding among others, proper funding of polytechnics, and an end to discrimination of polytechnic graduates in the labour market.
