The Academic staff Union of Polytechnic, Abia State Chapter has embarked on another round of industrial action owing to non payment of salaries. This development is coming on the heels of the recent bailout funds generated to states to help off set the backlog of salary arears.

The industrial action started on November 9. When factnewsonline visited the Polytechnic, the school was deserted as only few students were sighted in the campus.
Speaking to factnewsonline on their grievances ,the ASUP Chairman of the institution, Uma Godswill said that the academic staff of the Polytechnic embarked on the industrial action to mount pressure on the management of the institution to find a lasting solution to their problem.

A former Chairman of the Union, Christian Nkoro commended the present administration of Dr . Okezie Ikpeazu for accepting to offset the two billion naira loan facility incurred by the immediate past administration of the school. He condemned the situation of announcing that the backlog of salaries owed the lecturers had been cleared, describing it as false and unfounded.

Nkoro explained that they are eager to carry out their duties diligently in order to meet up with the academic calendar, while promising not to derail.

However, they are hopeful that the school management will look into their plight as a matter of urgency to bring back normal activities of the school.
