Nigerian polytechnic lecturers have declared a two-week strike.

Nigerian polytechnic lecturers have declared a two-week strike.

The latest move comes less than 72 hours after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) declared a three-month extension of its ongoing strike.

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), which represents Nigerian polytechnic lecturers, has declared a two-week warning strike beginning Monday, May 16.

This was stated in a statement issued by the union’s president, Anderson Ezeibe, on May 11, 2022.

The decision was made during the 102nd emergency national executive council meeting on Wednesday in Abuja, according to the statement.

The union stated that the decision became necessary due to the government’s inability to implement the Memorandum of Action (MoA) reached in June 2021, which informed the suspension of its two-month strike at the time.

ASUP claimed it also issued a one-month ultimatum in April to meet its requirements, but the administration ignored it and continued with political activities as if nothing had happened.

The latest move comes less than 72 hours after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) declared a three-month extension of its ongoing strike.

Other university labor organizations, including the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), are now on strike.

ASUP’s demands:

The union identified nine concerns at the heart of its disagreement with the government in a statement titled “Status Update of the ASUP/Federal Government of Nigeria Engagement and Resolutions of the Emergency National Executive Council (NEC) Meeting of ASUP conducted on the 11th of May, 2022.”

These difficulties, according to ASUP, include the claimed failure to disburse the agreed N15 billion revitalisation money for the sector 11 months after it was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari, as well as the failure to refund arrears of its members’ new minimum salary.

According to the union, the outstanding arrears have now piled to 10 months, and the nearly N19 billion “composite sum” purportedly rests at the office of the federation’s accountant-general, with no “Authority to Incur Expenditure (AIE)” given, among seven other concerns.

The copy of the statement by the union is reproduced below:
