The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) have entered a closed door emergency meeting following the threat to embark on another round of strike.
The emergency meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, the 6th of April 2021 at 11:00am at the Ministry’s Headquarters in Abuja.
The details were contained in a statement by Director Press and Public Relations, Ben. Bem Goong.
Explaining the reason for the emergency meeting, the Minister said the meeting is intended to nip the strike in the bud.
It will be recalled that ASUP issued notice of a strike after calling off a nine-month-old strike in January this year, saying, the intended strike is over what the refusal of Government to implement some of the agreements entered into between the union and the Federal Government.
