ASUP suspends strike

ASUP suspends strike

Polytechnic students are expected to return back to school as the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) suspends its (81 days) strike today.

The ASUP Chairman, Dr. Chibuzor Asumogba, in a phone interview said the decision was made by the National Executive Committee of the Union as a result of the intervention of the Joint committee of the Senate and House of Representative on Education.

He said the union gave the government representatives one month to accede to their demands and release the white paper on the visitation panel to federal polytechnics.

The ASUP Chairman called on all lecturers to go back to work. "All lecturers are to resume work at their various institutions today".
