Polytechnic Lecturers Suspend Strike, Ready For A Reviewed MoU with Federal Government
Polytechnic lecturers under the auspices 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, today that the decision to suspend the strike was taken by the National Executive Council (NEC) after a lot of deliberation and proper consultation with the respective congresses across Nigeria.
He said that the government had committed to a reviewed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of action to concretize the resolution and ensure its full implementation, and the union would resume 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.
This is coming few days after Naija News reported that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) finally reached an agreement with the Federal Government and ended its three-month strike less than a week ago.
