Less than 12 hours after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) extended their ongoing strike action by three months, its Polytechnics counterpart, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, (ASUP) has announced its plan to commence a nationwide strike action from May 11, 2022.

The action, according to the union, is based on the Federal Government’s failure to implement the Memorandum of Action (MoA) reached with the union in May, 2021.

Mr Precious Nwakodo, the Zonal Coordinator of Zone D which comprises of South South and South East, announced the planned action at a press conference held at the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo
state on Monday.

Nwakodo said the planned strike action was hinged on the yet to be met demands among which are the non release of the N15 billion Revatilization Fund approved over a year for the sector to address infrastructural deficit as contained in the 2014 Needs Assessment Report.

According to him, “Following the discouraging response of the government to the one month notice of ultimatum which ended five days ago, 4th of May precisely, the NEC of the union will be meeting in two days time at Abuja to review the situation and take a decision on the planned strike,”.
