ASUP industrial action will go on as the emergency
meeting held between the striking polytechnic lecturers
and the Federal Government ended in a deadlock.
The meeting took place in Abuja in the evening of
March 12, 2014, Wednesday, and was initiated by the
Supervising Minister of Education Minister, Nyesom Wike.
The National Publicity Secretary of ASUP, Clement Chirman,
expressed pessimism, noted that government’s attitude towards the
strike does not leave space for the immediate resolution of the crisis.
“The minister called ASUP for a meeting in his office with
our representative. So we left our NEC meeting and came
all the way to Abuja for the meeting yesterday
(Wednesday),” Mr Chirman, who was at the meeting, said.
The ASUP-NEC meeting was underway in Yandev, Benue State,
parallel with ASUP/FG talks. It started on March 10 and would
continue till March 15, 2014, Saturday.
“Federal Government has offered nothing other than their
former position and ASUP is not accepting that. We see the
“As a union we have tried to ensure the strike ends and
normal academic session is restored but to no avail. Let
me say that this is a strange approach by the government
to end a serious matter. We have returned this morning
back to Yandev to continue with our NEC meeting,” Mr
ASUP and FG had several rounds of unsuccessful talks since the
nationwide strike had began in October 2013.
It would be noted that the polytechnic lecturers’ demands go further
beyond personal monetary issues. They include proper funding of
polytechnics and an end to the discrimination of polytechnic graduates
in the labour market.
