The National Association of polytechnic students (NAPS), has appealed to Federal government to pay listening ear to the demands of the Academic staff union of polytechnic (ASUP) to avert another nationwide strike as failure to reach an agreement with the union will attract a peaceful demonstration.
The Association President, comrade Kingsley Asiegbu stated this during a press briefing in Abuja on Monday.
“We humbly appeal to the FG to pay listening ears to the demands of the union as to salvage the academic gridlock that has hitherto held the curriculum backwards. There has been incessant industrial actions across the education sector, hence the look like an order in the education system. An attention to this plea is a gross attempt at the salvation of our future! We have neither seen nor heard where a good father promises his children bread and gives them stone. We may not hesitate to go on a ‘Shut down Abuja Peaceful Demonstration.’
Speaking on Insecurity, Comrade Kingsley said the state of insecurity ravaging the Nation has affect tertiary institutions and campuses thereby calling on Nigerian government to find a lasting solution to curb it.
