ASUP Federal Polytechnic Oko Chapter

By Comr. Silas Okolie

ASUP National in their meeting held today has agreed to unanimously suspend the lingering strike which has affected the academic activities of Federal Polytechnics across Nigeria due to the Government’s failure to meet up with their collective demands.

According to the Memo recently released by the Secretary-General of the Union, Shammah S. Kpanja, after the successful conclusion of the nationwide chapter congresses and collation of the outcomes of these congresses as directed by the emergency meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Union. In his words “I am directed to communicate the suspension of the Union’s national industrial action effective Thursday, 10th of June, 2021.

The suspension is for a period of 3 months within which it is expected that the government would have fulfilled ALL the items contained in the signed Memorandum of Action. The Union’s NEC shall therefore review this decision thereafter.

This decision is supported by 74% vote of chapter congresses currently observing the strike.

I am further directed to convey the appreciation of the Union’s leadership to the chapters and members who kept faith with the strike action throughout its duration and to reassure members of the Union’s commitment to ensuring that the items in the signed memorandum of action are faithfully implemented by the government. Chapters in violation of the strike at any time shall be subjected to the provisions of the Union’s constitution.”
He further enjoined all Members to resume duties from Thursday, 10th of June, 2021.
