Kaduna Polytechnic Lecturers Begin Indefinite Strike
Kaduna Polytechnic branch of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, is not waiting till September 11 to down tools.
Publicity Secretary of the chapter, Abbas Muhammad, said that the action was taken following the alleged failure of the polytechnic’s management to respect earlier agreements.
Muhammad said, “We resumed the earlier suspended strike following a unanimous congress decision by the academic staff of the institution demanding the management to immediately address their demands.
“The latest face-off between the academic union and the Kaduna Polytechnic management is coming on the heels of an emergency congress presided by the unions General Secretary, Dr Talatu Umar.
“The ASUP members resolved to suspend all academic activities, with a passionate call on the government, general public and all stakeholders to prevail on the management to do the needful so as to ensure timely resolution of the problems.”
According to him, the latest agitation followed the failure of the management to resolve any of the issues before it since the suspension of an earlier strike on July 18, 2017.
