In few days to 2019 general elections, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), suspended her two month old strike, this after a pronouncement by Federal government.

This development seemed a strategy by the government in luring the entire students to cast vote.

Meanwhile, ASUP, National President, Mr. Usman Dutse said this at a news conference on Tuesday in Abuja.

According to him, “we have decided to suspend our two month old strike; this decision was taken at the end of our National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.

“We shall not hesitate to resume the suspended strike should government fail to review the Memorandum of Action (MoA) and ensure full implementation before end of May 2019.

This is in view of the progress made in the course of the union’s negotiations with government.

“The NEC of the union, after exhaustive deliberations and in due consultations with the respective congresses across the nation resolved to suspend the current industrial action.
