ASUP Strike Continues As Poly Lecturers And FG Meeting Ends In DEADLOCK



Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) are to continue the ongoing nationwide strike, as the Monday meeting between polytechnic lecturers and the Federal Government ended in a stalemate.

It will be recalled that the ASUP embarked on strike from April 29, July 17, 2013 in the first instance, and resumed the industrial action in early October, 2013. The lecturers demand better working conditions, infrastructure improvement, and ending the discrimination of polytechnic graduates, among other things.

The National Publicity Secretary of ASUP, Clement Chirman, confirmed the deadlock, adding that the Federal Government’s delegation was led to the Abuja meeting by the Minister of Labour, Chukwuemeka Wogu.

    Another season of rigmarole. Hope the FG will not spend the next 6 months, like the ASUU case, holding fruitless meetings which led us nowhere really, but ended up still doing what ASUU demanded initially, after keeping students at home for one whole semester. I will suggest both FG and ASUP go straight into negotiations and come up with an agreement within the shortest possible time so as not to disrupt the academic calendar.

WHY? Bcs of stigmatizing, if FG didn’t prefer “POLYTECHNIC” as an Institute, you had better cancel it. Bcs u are wasting our life § time with all this nolentity strike !

Criminal minds threatening Army with travel ban: Buratai

Tukur Buratai, Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff has disclosed that he does not mind living in Nigeria for the rest of his life.

Buratai made this statement on Monday in a meeting with Army Commanders in Abuja,  where they deliberated on the recent End SARS protest and pockets of violence across the country.

Information Nigeria recalls there have been calls by International bodies calling for a travel ban to be placed on some military officers accused of human rights abuses in Nigeria.

Buratai attacked the international organizations clamoring for a ban on top personnel and soldiers over rights abuses. According to him, his first trip outside Nigeria was when he was 50 and that he doesn’t mind if he has to live in Nigeria for the rest of his life.

“Criminal elements are threatening us with travel ban but we are not worried because we must remain in this country to make it better. The first time I travelled outside of this country, I was already 50 years and a General, so I don’t mind if I live the rest of my life here” The Cable quoted him as saying

At the meeting, the Army chief said recent events across the country have shown the determination of unscrupulous individuals and groups to cause chaos by all means.

“The events of the past few days in our dear nation have shown the determination of some unscrupulous individuals and groups to destabilise Nigeria by all means,” he said.

These individuals, groups and other undesirable elements have hijacked the peaceful #EndSARS protest marches resulting to widespread violence, acts of wanton destruction and looting of public and private properties in many parts of the country. These acts led to the imposition of curfew in several states of the federation.

Despite all these, the army has continued to exercise restraint applied all the principles of internal security operations and fully abided by the internationally recognised rules of engagement as contained in our published standard operating procedures for internal security operations which are derived from the International human rights laws and are in accordance with the international principles guiding the use of force.” he said.
