FOLLOWING Saturday suspension of 10 months old strike by Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, its President, Dr Chibuzor Asomugha, yesterday urged members to double their effort to recover lost time and lessen the pains students and their parents suffered as a result of the strike.
He said “Lecturers in Nigeria’s polytechnics should put in double effort to fully ameliorate the loss suffered as a result of the strike.”
Asomugha in a statement said, its National Executive Council, NEC, agreed after a meeting in Abuja that it was important lecturers gave more time to students as they resumed tomorrow (Tuesday) to recover lost ten months.
To forestall resumption of strike after three months, he urged the Federal Government to invest requisite human and material resources to ensure that all outstanding issues are resolved within the three months.
