At its emergency meeting held on Friday, 6th February, 2015, the Governing Council of the Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti has ordered the indefinite suspension of all Trade Unions as well as Students Union activities on Campus forthwith.
This decision was taken by the Governing Council of the Institution after reviewing the series of disturbances by the Staff Unions that had disrupted normal academic activities over the last three years.
The Polytechnic Governing Council, at the meeting, had in exercise of the powers conferred on it by Sec.5. (1) of decree 33 of 1979,and other enabling laws establishing and governing the Management of the Polytechnic, in a unanimous decision directed the indefinite suspension of all forms of Unions (staff and students) activities forthwith.
In arriving at the decision, the Council observed that the directive was a consequence of the
I. Unbridled strike actions and violent protests by these Unions which have not made it possible to graduate any student in its full time programmes since 2012.
II. Serial infringement of the Public Service Rules.
III. Polarization of the Students’ Union as well as
IV. Polarization of Trade Unions into pro and anti-management.
The Governing Council has therefore unanimously resolved that henceforth all Unions’ activities be suspended indefinitely.
