The Association Staff Union Of Polytechnic(ASUP) has threatened to extend their 2 weeks warking strike to indefinite strike if the Federal Government of Nigeria does not meet their demand.
This statement was made known by the Association President, Anderson Ezeibe on Tuesday 17th May, 2022.
He made this statement after the union declared a 2 weeks warning strike which started on Monday, 16th May.
Urging his fellow Union members that this warning will not be the end but the beginning of their strike as there is a clear evidence from the FG that they aren’t ready to meet their demands.
“We call the attention of the Nigerian government and the public to the level of irresponsibility being displayed by agencies of government and functionaries of government in these agencies on our issues. What we are seeing is a clear absence of commitment by the government.
“The meeting was more or less for mobilisation as you know we are on strike, and our members need to get the right perspective on the issue.
“So, the meeting essentially was to raise the morale of our members, explain the issues with them and encourage them to stand firm.
“Our members should be prepared for more strikes; this is just a two-week definite strike; it also means that we can recommend the strike, depending on the government’s decision. That is why I am telling my members to be ready.”
