Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP has suspended its two-month old nationwide strike. This is following the series of meetings held between the leadership of the union and the Federal Government.
You would recall that Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) also recently suspended its industrial actions. ASUP has now now followed suit after meeting with the FG.
President of ASUP, Usman Yusuf Dutse, announced the suspension of the strike on Tuesday during a press briefing in Abuja.
Dutse said that the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union, after exhaustive deliberations and due consultations with the respective congress across the nation “resolved to suspend the industrial action on the conditions that government commits to a reviewed memorandum of Action to solidify the resolutions and ensure its full implementation, failing which the union shall resume the action at its discretion.”
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has now directed its members to return to classrooms with immediate effect.
