By Sunday Awosoro.
The teaching staff of the Federal Polytechnic Ado-Ekiti has returned to academic work on Monday, 21st of June, 2021.
Announcing this in a directive, Ade Adeyemi-Adejolu, the institution’s director of public relations said that the resumption became important, following its approval in a meeting of the academic board of the institution, held on 15th of June, 2021.
He therefore urged all “concerned staff and students” to return to work.
The Vent Republic recalls that the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), on June 10, announced the suspension of its 65-day old strike.
However, as explained by the National Publicity Secretary for ASUP, Abdullahi Yalwa in a statement, “the suspension is for a period of three months to enable the government to complete the execution of the items contained in the Memorandum of Action signed with the union since 27th April 2021”.
“It is the expectation of our Union that the suspension of this action will provide an enabling environment for the government to fulfil other aspects of the Memorandum of Action and afford the government an opportunity to reverse its trust deficit within our sector,” he further said.
