According to a member who is representing the Kauru Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Representative Simon Arabo, who disclosed to Faith, our correspondent, that the National Assembly has been doing its own bit in order to ensure that the federal government and the teachers reach some kind of agreement which will see that the ASUP strike which has been on going since October 2013, end immediately.
The Rep, Simon Arabo disclosed that the 10 Months old strike action, which was embark upon by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) as a scandal.
Simon Arabo even went further to say that this strike is really getting out of hands and students have been sitting at home doing absolutely nothing, and he said this, while receiving award from the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) yesterday.
He continued and here’s his exact words: “Both the teachers and the federal government should know that this kind of long strike does not help anybody, not even the government in the long run. Such things don’t happen anywhere in the world except in Nigeria. It is only in Nigeria that such kind of strikes happened which lasts for Months, going to a Year in the next 2 months”.
We hope that the strike gets called off very soon and students return back to their studies.
