The Academic Staff Union of
Polytechnics (ASUP), on wednesday, said it had concluded plans to stage a nationwide protest over what it described as government’s insensitivity to its lingering strike.

The National President of the
union, Dr Chibuzo Asomugha, told newsmen in Abuja that the protest would take place on April 29. This is coming on the heels of Kebbi State chapter of the union’s decision on Tuesday to call off the 10-month old strike.

Asomugha said failure by the
Federal Government to meet the demands of ASUP and the
Colleges of Education AcademicvStaff Union (COEASU) and the consequent shutdown of the nation’s public polytechnics and colleges of education was
“In fact, we are planning for the protest on April 29 and if it
doesn’t come up on the 29th,
then it would be immediately
after May Day.
“We have been waiting for the
federal government. The strike should have been suspended about three weeks ago but wechaven’t heard from them.
“So, with this kind of development we do not even think there is any measure of sincerity on the part
of the government,’’ he said.

According to him, the strike has lingered and members are
beginning to give in to pressure.
“Ten months into the strike, some chapters are coming under pressure but there are provisions in our constitution to take care of such betrayals."
