Academic activities on campuses of Nigerians polytechnic institutions were grounded on Tuesday as the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics commenced an indefinite strike over the non-implementation of its demands by the Federal Government.

ASUP President, Anderson Ezeibe, said members of the union had vowed to shut down polytechnics across the nation till the Federal Government meets their demands.

Ezeibe said the union had made its demands known to the government and other relevant bodies, but nothing had been done to address the issues raised.

ASUP’s grouse includes non-implementation of the 2014 NEEDS Report and non-release of revitalisation funds to the sector despite assurances since 2017.

"Our grievances also include the non-reconstitution of governing councils in federal polytechnics and many state-owned institutions leading to the disruption of governance and administrative processes in the institutions since May, 2020,” Ezeibe said.
