Why ASUP Strike Will End Soon.The Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike has assured Nigerians that the ongoing strikes by the Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnics (ASUP) and Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) will soon be over.
Adding to the statement Wike said that President Goodluck Jonathan has personally intervened to resolve the conflict.
It would be recalled that the lecturers in Nigeria’s public polytechnics have been on a nationwide strike since October 4 because of a series of unmet demands, and COEASU has been on industrial action since December 2013.
"No government will be happy that students are roaming the street. We must promise what is practicable. Not just making promises without fulfilling them. Be rest assured that it will be resolved."
