The Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) boss stated further that the reduction in subventions given to tertiary institutions in Oyo State is also part of the union’s demand, stressing that, “We’ve been battling with the reduction since 2015.”
On the effect the industrial action would have on academic activities, he said the trend of events will determine it, stating that, “for now, it may not affect the academic activities but the trend of events will determine what will happen because for now, we don’t have the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) with us’.
“NASU is on strike presently. The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics (SSANIP) is yet to join. They met yesterday at the congress and what they agreed is that they are going to give the management until next week Thursday’, he said.
