The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics on Tuesday met with the Federal Government, but said that its strike which commenced at 12 midnight would still stand.
The President of ASUP, Anderson Ezeibe, said this at the Federal Ministry of Education after a meeting with the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu.
He said the strike had not been suspended, adding that the meeting with the minister was the beginning of a resolution, “and until it has been satisfactorily resolved, the strike must go on.”
Ezeibe said, “Today, therefore marks Day 1 of the execution of the resolutions of our union. The strike has not been suspended as it is just a few hours old. The meeting with the minister is just the beginning of a resolution and until it has been satisfactorily resolved, the strike must go on”, he said.
