The Spokesperson of the chapter, Abbas Muhammad, told the News Agency of Nigeria in a telephone interview that the action was taken following the alleged failure of the polytechnic’s management to respect earlier agreements.

According to him, “We resumed the earlier suspended strike following a unanimous congress decision by the academic staff of the institution demanding the management to immediately address their demands.

“The latest face-off between the academic union and the Kaduna Polytechnic management is coming on the heels of an emergency congress presided by the unions General Secretary, Dr Talatu Umar.”

 He added that, “The ASUP members resolved to suspend all academic activities, with a passionate call on the government, general public and all stakeholders to prevail on the management to do the needful so as to ensure timely resolution of the problems.

“The latest agitation followed the failure of the management to resolve any of the issues before it since the suspension of an earlier strike on July 18, 2017. The agreement reached at the time was to meet the teachers demand within three months after the strike’s suspension.”

Muhammed however listed some of the issues in contention to include poor working condition, irregular academic calendar and lack of consumables for laboratory practicals.

“Others are, inadequate amenities and conveniences, lack of recreational facilities, inadequate offices and furniture and the perennial lack of transparency in withholding of funds related to staff allowances”, he said.
