Lagos State Polytechnic, LASPOTECH main campus in Ikorodu has been shut down by aggrieved staff and members of NASU
  According to reports, the campus has been grounded for two consecutive days following agitations by non-academic staff who are kicking over non-payment of accruable salary arrears among other sundry issues.  The strike action by the staff under the aegis of Non-Academic staff union (NASU) grounded all activities of the school especially academics, administrative and even commercial activities.  Yesterday saw the three gates of LASPOTECH completely shut down while some students had to gain entry by scaling the fence into the premises.

ASUU Strike: ‘Operation No Resumption, No Election’ – Nigerian Students Declare

ASUU Strike: ‘Operation No Resumption, No Election’ – Nigerian Students Declare




Due to the ongoing ASUU strike, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has announced its plan to boycott the upcoming general elections.

The students union in a statement signed by its President, Comrade Danielson Akpan on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, said the lingering ASUU strike is a deliberate ploy to disenfranchise students who registered for the elections within their school environments.
The statement further says the union took the decision following the prolonged disagreement between the federal government, ASUU and ASUP.
The statement reads:
“The leadership of NANS after careful observation of the continued insensitive shut down of our universities due to the strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and Academic staff union of polytechnics wish to unapologetically declare ‘Operation No Resumption, No Election’
“It appears that the gains recorded in the last few weeks has been eroded by the consistent shut down of our schools and barely 12days to the commencement of the general elections. it is instructive to note that the students’ constituency constitutes the largest votes segment, registered voters with 22.3m as released by INEC.
“These continuous strike actions by both ASUU and ASUP has not only brought increased pain on students and parents it is now seen by us as a deliberate ploy to disenfranchise our members, especially those who are registered within their school environments.
“Consequently Nigerian students have decided to take their destinies in their hands, enough of politics being played with our future. We wish to inform the general public that Nigerian students would resist any election conducted in any part of the country should pour campuses be shut till election date.
“We are conscious layers of the nation and on no account shall we allow this disenfranchisement of the largest voting population of our members in a major election to pass due to no fault of the students. We have 22.3m registered students, eligible to change re destiny of the nation.
We refused to be sacrificed in exercising this obligatory demand to our nation at this crucial moment. Our voices must be heard and our votes must count.
”To this end, the NANS leadership wish to declare ‘Operation No Resumption, No Election.”

FG, ASUU Resume Negotiations Today

FG, ASUU Resume Negotiations Today

ASUU

The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, says ASUU will suspend its 10-week-old strike if the Federal Government agrees to release N50bn to revitalise public universities and N20bn to pay lecturers their allowances in their meeting on Monday.
The union resumes its negotiation with the Federal Government, and Ogunyemi insists they body will not shift its ground unless the government makes a commitment to release the money.
However, he said ASUU had lost confidence in the government since it failed to honour previous agreements.
Ogunyemi, who spoke with reporters in Ibadan at the weekend, said ASUU had rejected government’s proposal of N20bn to be paid in two tranches to revitalise public universities.
He said the union had asked the government to include the earned academic allowances in the 2019 budget.
He said, “We want them to pay N50bn as a sign of commitment this quarter.
“Our members have rejected the 20bn proposed by them that will be spread over two quarters in 2019. Our members have insisted on the release of at least N50bn.
“On the earned academic allowances, with N105bn not yet paid, our members are saying that even if you (government) are releasing N20bn, let it be stated clearly that it is only for ASUU members, and the balance which you promised to pay by four instalments, attach timelines to the balance and figures.
“In 2017, this government promised to include the earned academic allowances in the budget so that we won’t be talking about arrears. If the government had included it in the 2018 budget, we would not be talking about arrears now. “Our members are saying the government should take steps to include it in the 2019 budget and that is not late because they are still working on the budget.”
