    Finally: ASUP suspends 10-month-old strike.

    Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has
    suspended its 10- month-old strike.
    This was disclosed by the President of the union, Dr
    Chibuzor Asomugha, yesterday, after their National
    Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Abuja.
    Speaking with Sunday Vanguard on telephone, he said, “Our
    National Executive Council (NEC) met today and resolved to
    suspend the strike for three months starting from Tuesday
    next (this) week.”
    Asomugha explained that the strike suspension was to
    allow the new Education Minister, Alhaji Abrahim Shekarau,
    study their demands and take appropriate action.
    He, therefore, urged polytechnics students and lecturers to
    report in school on Tuesday for lecture.
    The ASUP leader said: “The decision to call off the strike is
    in consonance with the demand of the new Minister of
    Education, Alhaji Abrahim Shekarau, to allow him study our
    “All ASUP is asking for is that government makes
    commitment on when and how the issues will be resolved.”
    He did not state whether the Federal Government has
    however made any commitment before the suspension of
    the strike.
    ASUP went on the strike on October 4, 2013 to press the
    Federal Government to accede to its 13-point demands
    which include the release of the White Paper on the
    Visitation to Federal Polytechnics.
