The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) might embrace another strike action over the alleged failure of the federal government to implement the agreement recently reached by both parties.

Africa News24 (AN24) reports that the ASUP had threatened an industrial action of one-week over the government’s noncompliance with their demands.

The national publicity secretary, ASUP, Chris Nkoro said the decision of the union was reached during the 94th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union at the Shehu Idris College of Health Science and Technology, Makarfi, Kaduna State.

Nkoro who did not reveal when the strike will commence recalled that the union had in February, suspended its two months

In his words, Nkoro said; “The union views the persistent lethargic disposition of the Federal government and its agencies towards re-negotiation of FGN/ASUP agreement as a ploy to cripple the system and perpetuate suffering on members,” said ASUP spokesperson.

“The NEC urges the federal government to without further delay, commence the re-negotiation process.

“The NEC, sadly observed that while the union had agreed on the terms of enrolling of the sector into Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS), some rectors have continued to use a backhand ploy to enroll some institutions without recourse to our union’s documented peculiar concerns.

“The NEC, therefore, calls on the government to promptly call these erring rectors to order.”
