The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has given the Federal Government a two weeks deadline to meet its demands or face an indefinite strike.

The announcement follows an emergency meeting of ASUP’s National Executive Council.

If the federal government fails to accept the union’s seven-point demand within the next two weeks, members will go on strike indefinitely.

One of the union’s main demands is the quick disbursement of N15 billion in polytechnic revitalization money granted by President Muhammadu Buhari eleven months ago.

Others include the quick payment of polytechnic employees’ arrears of the new minimum wage.

The union also demanded the federal government to resolve the issue of the polytechnic service program, which was approved in 2017, not being released.

They also demand that the approved retirement age and revised wage structure for polytechnic employees be implemented immediately.

The union urged members of the public to pressure the federal government to do the right thing by meeting the union’s demands within the time frame set. It went on to say that this would help avert efforts to shut down academic activities in Polytechnics across the country.
