Update on ASUP and ASUU Strike

Posted on Updated on

While University Students remain home till God knows when due to the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities strike which took effect on the 3rd of July, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) on Tuesday, April 16, suspended an 11- week strike that had commenced since April 29, 2013.
The president of the union, Mr. Chibuzor Asomogba, in a chat with News Agency of Nigeria, said “We have decided to suspend the strike from July 17,” after a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting. Confirming the suspension of the strike, the
union’s national publicity secretary, Comrade, Clement Chirman, ASUP said: “The suspension is also to allow the Joint-committee liaise with
relevant ministries, agencies and parastatals with a view to tackling all the issues contained in the union’s demands within a time-frame of
one month as against the two weeks earlier requested by the committee.”
Asomogba stated that all ASUP members are expected to resume work on Wednesday, 17th July, 2013. The State of Education in Nigeria, as Pitiable as it has become, makes one wonder When the hell will all this end?
