The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has extended the ultimatum given to the federal government to address their outstanding issues by another 30 days.

Failure to do this, the union said it might be forced to resume its suspended industrial action.

The Chairman of the Kaduna Polytechnic chapter, Mohammed Mohammed, who revealed this at a press conference yesterday, said the decision was reached at the 102nd meeting of the union’s National Executive Council.

“In choosing to extend the long expired three-month suspension period of our industrial action, we are convinced that the extra window of one month typifies our level of restraint and consideration for our students and other members of the public even as well hope that the government will take advantage of this opportunity to avoid a shutdown of the sector,” he said.

Mohammed criticised the delay in the appointment of rectors for the federal polytechnics in Mubi, Kaduna, Offa and Ekowe “despite the conclusion of the process for the appointment of rectors in the affected institutions.”

He appealed to the public to prevail on the government to do the needful and avoid a shutdown of the sector.
