The striking lecturers of Polytechnics have not been paid their monthly salaries for the past two months beginning from March, National President of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Mr. Chibuzo Asomugha has said.
Asomugha told schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine yesterday in Abuja that “the lecturers have not received their March and April salaries from the federal government.”
Until the recent development, several meetings were held between the Supervising Minister of education, Barrister Wike Nyesom and ASUP leaders but all ended IN deadlock as no agreement was reached to end the strike.
Permanent Secretary of the ministry of education Mr Mac-John Nwaobiala, said earlier in the week that there was no budgetary allocation for the salary arrears of the striking lecturers.
The polytechnic lecturers have been on strike for 10 months now over their demands for government to improve the quality of polytechnic education in the country.
The Union vow to continue with the strike until their demands are met.
