The Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnics (ASUP) have suspended its 65-day-old strike, following an appraisal of the report indicating the gradual implementation of the items contained in the Memorandum of Action signed between the Union and the Federal Government. National Publicity Secretary of the group, Abdullahi Yalwa in a statement on Wednesday said, the suspension of the strike will take effect from June 10. The statement reads; “The suspension is for a period of three months to enable the government complete the execution of the items contained in the Memorandum of Action signed with the Union since 27th April 2021. "As part of the efforts communicated by the Federal Ministry of Education, certain items have been fulfilled like the reconstitution and inauguration of governing councils and visitation panels in Nigerian Federal Polytechnics while we are led to believe that the release of funds for infrastructure revitalization and minimum wage arrears is currently being processed. “Other items include the ongoing efforts at the review of the Scheme of Service and Conditions of Service for Polytechnics as well as the commencement of work towards resolution of the issues around CONTISS 15 migration arrears for the lower cadre. We also acknowledge the recent passage of the Bill for removal of the dichotomy against HND holders in the country. “It is the expectation of our Union that the suspension of this action will provide an enabling environment for the government to fulfill other aspects of the Memorandum of Action and afford the government an opportunity to reverse its trust deficit within our sector. “We equally appreciate the different layers of intervention by critical stakeholder groups in the sector within the period."
