The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has declared a two-week warning strike to commence on May 16, 2022.
The National President of the union, Anderson Ezeibe, said ASUP took the decision after an emergency National Executive Council meeting held on Wednesday.
The decision was contained in a statement signed by Ezeibe and titled, ‘Status update of the ASUP/ Federal Government of Nigeria engagement; and resolutions of the emergency National Executive Council meeting of ASUP held on May 11, 2022.”
It reads, ”Following exhaustive deliberations, on the update as outlined above, the emergency meeting of the union’s National Executive Council has resolved that members should withdraw their services in a two-week industrial action with effect from Monday, May 16, 2022.
“We are deploying this medium to equally appeal to members of the public to prevail on the government to do the needful within the two weeks period so as to avoid an indefinite shut down of the sector.”
