The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has distributed 50 sets of  laptops to its members of Hussaini Adamu Federal Polytechnic Kazaure in Jigawa State.
Presenting the items, the National President of the union, Mr. Anderson Umezurike Ezeibe  said the union also provided 30 desktop computers to the institute’s computer laboratory.
Mr.  Ezeibe explained that, “the National Information Technology Development (NITDA) donated the 50 laptops and 30 desktop computers, aimed at easing  teaching and learning of information and communication technology at the institution.
He noted that the union distributed the computers according to  seniority among the benefitting members.
Mr Ezeibe therefore, called on the beneficiaries to make good use  of the computers.
Meanwhile, the National President of the union Mr. Anderson Umezurike Ezeibe while  addressing members of the union,  announced the calling off of its industrial action on June 10th 2021 based on agreements  reached with the Federal Government.
Anderson explained that part of the agreement includes the release of N15 billion for revitalisation of polytechnics and monotechnics and release  of payment of the arrears of minimum wage, inauguration of governing council,  as well as pay as you earn liability, among others.
He said since  the agreement was reached,  the Federal Government has fulfilled some, while others are yet to be achieved.
“Despite the suspension of the strike, the revitalization fund is yet to be released after its approval by  President Muhammadu Buhari as well as the minimum wage arrears.
” Renegotiation document is still on, the renegotiation process of the agreement is also going on.
” Therefore, strike is a legitimate instrument of engagement for government’s failure to meet our demands.
 “Strike is a decision taken by national executives, so any time we give a progress report and it doesn’t meet the approval and satisfaction of NEC, strike becomes an option,” he declared.
He noted that the NEC will take its possible decision on its next meeting to hold by March in Mubi.
