The agreement was to implement the recommendations of the 2014 NEEDS assessment which recommended the increase of funding to the polytechnics.

The ASUP President, Usman Dutse, announced the suspension of the strike on Tuesday during a press briefing in Abuja.

According to him, the union “resolved to suspend the industrial action on the conditions that government commits to a reviewed memorandum of Action to solidify the resolutions and ensure its full implementation, failing which the union shall resume the action at its discretion.”
