The strike, according to the source will also affect Federal Colleges of Education nationwide.

Already, the leadership of ASUU meets this weekend at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) in a three-day National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union to review their stand on the strike action over government failure to honour the agreement it reached with it.

 The outcome of the NEC meeting which ends on Monday will determine whether ASUU will proceed on another line of strike action.

As for NASU, the strike is to pressurise government to pay the arrears of monetisation for two years spanning 2003 to 2005.

 The association is also protesting the non-implementation of the new salary scale and high risk allowance for the rank and file.

Meanwhile, the management of the Polytechnic, Ibadan, has declared that it will henceforth, enforce the Federal Government’s policy of ‘No Work no Pay’ which the Oyo State government, the proprietor of the institution, has also adopted.

A statement from The Polytechnic signed by the Acting Registrar, Mr. Tosho Ayanwale, reiterated the illegality of the current industrial action embarked upon by the three house unions of the institution.
