Nigerian polytechnic lecturers have been on strike since October 2013.
The ongoing nationwide strike by polytechnic lecturers is set to continue as the National Executive Council, NEC, of the lecturers’ union, ASUP, rejected the federal government’s offer.
The National Publicity Secretary of ASUP, Clement Shirman, told PREMIUM TIMES that after a three-hour meeting on Wednesday, the NEC of ASUP resolved that until all 13 issues contained in its demand are met, the strike would continue.
The lecturers have been on strike since October 1, 2013, demanding among others better working condition, infrastructure improvement, and an end to discrimination of polytechnic graduates.
