Polytechnic lecturers suspend strike

Fred Ezeh, Abuja

Polytechnic lecturers under the umbrella of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic Staff (ASUP) have suspended their nationwide strike.

ASUP thus directed its members to resume work as soon as possible.

ASUP President, Usman Dutse, told journalists in Abuja, on Tuesday, that the decision to suspend the strike was taken by the National Executive Council (NEC) after exhaustive deliberation and due consultation with the respective congresses across Nigeria.

He said that government had committed to a reviewed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of action to concretise the resolution and ensure its full implementation, and the union would resume the industrial action if the government failed to do that.

Recall that academic workers withdrew their services in December 2018, to register their discontent with the inability of the government to meet the agreements it reached with the union.
