ASUP Strike: Federal Polytechnic Bida Pulls Out Of ASUP Strike

It seems like the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics are losing it, as some top notched Polytechnics are pulling out of the strike. The ASUP demand is growing weaker by the day, as several polytechnics are backing out and the union can’t do anything about it.

The Federal Polytechnic Bida has also joined the wagon, as the school vice chancellor announced that the Polytechnics has pulled out of the strike.

According to a statement which was released by the Registrar of the academic institution, the reason for the pulling out of the strike is for the good of the students.

The statement from the school management board reads thus;

The Academic Staff Union of the Bida Polytechnics, which at its statutory meeting, which was held on the 23rd of June, 2014 considered the Report from the Joint Committee of Deans/Directors and Central Examination Committee on the above-cited subject matter decided as follows:

1. The Polytechnic is set to reopen for the 2012/2013 Second Semester on WEDNESDAY, the 25th of June 25, 2014 to enable the students come to the Halls of Residence.

2. Academic activities to commence on Monday, June 30, 2014 for all students (including all DCE students).
