The Federal Polytechnic, Ede Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), has complied with the indefinite strike declared by the national body on Tuesday.
ASUP General Secretary in the polytechnic, Comr. Akinola disclosed through a memo released, that the chapter totally complied with the directive of the nation body.
“We will remain on strike until directed otherwise by our national executives,” Akinola said.
Ayo Adebanjo, a student of the polytechnic, who spoke to Ngnews247.com on the development appealed to the federal government to dialogue with union and resolve disagreements.
“Federal Government should please find a way to resolve the issues, so we will resume school and continue our studies,” Ayo said.
Adewole Modupe, who applied for admission in the school also called on both parties to go to the negotiation table and iron things out.
“I have stayed at home for quite too long and hoping to secure admission in Ede Polytechnic.
“The strike, if prolonged will affect my chance of securing admission this session,” she said.
Mr Anderson Ezeibe, the National President of the union, had on Tuesday directed all members of the union to embark on the nation-wide indefinite strike.
Ezeibe said that the strike became necessary following the failure of the Federal Government to implement the 2010 and 2019 agreements reached with the union.
