imageMembers of the striking Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic, ASUP, have vowed to stage a “massive protest” in Abuja, over the federal government’s inability to come to term with their demands.

According to ASUP President, Chibuzor Asomugha, the move became imperative as the federal government never showed interest in resolving the wrangling.

Asomugha, while speaking on a radio programme on Ray Power FM, Friday said the government’s delegation during their last meeting promised to brief President Goodluck Jonathan on the development and come up with a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ to be signed by the two parties but nothing has been said to that effect.

The union leader who did not give an actual date for the protest, said market women, students, lecturers, labour unions and other concerned citizens would be involved.

He said the government’s “No work, No pay policy” would not stop them from fighting for their rights.

Asomugha further added that the lecturers’ salaries for March 2014 had not been paid following the “no work, no pay rule” imposed on then by the government since March 21.
