ASUP Strike Update Day 40: We Are Still Expecting FG's Invitation - ASUP

The National Vice President of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Mr Timothy Ogunseye has revealed that the union after reviewing reports from various chapters at its emergency NEC meeting held last week Thursday, agreed that the ongoing strike should continue until the government can show some form of commitment.

He recalled that the last meeting with the Federal Government on January10th could not hold due to the fact that the key stake holders from the Government were not available for the meeting and as such, ASUP couldn’t continue with the meeting and it was put off. He added that till now ASUP is still expecting another invitation from the FG.

The ASUP President equally disclosed that the Federal Government promised to give the union N15bn revitalisation funds as a show of commitment which the union did not object to. But up until now, the promise has not been fulfilled.

Ogunseye said the salient issues, which forced the lecturers to declare an indefinite strike, were not just about money for the lecturers but how to make the government address the dilapidated structures and lack of instructional materials to teach students.
