On Thursday, the ASUP team will meet with the Labour Minister, Dr Chris Ngige.

Commenting on the development, the National President of ASUP, Mr Anderson Ezeibe, expressed the hope that the meetings would be fruitful.

“We have been formally invited for meetings by the government teams. Our demands are clear and we hope the meetings would be fruitful. They have constituted Governing Councils for federal polytechnics and that is okay by us.

” We want things done appropriately and legitimately too. The absence of Governing Councils has made some Rectors to become authoritarian and dictators. Also, they must resolve the issue of appointing unqualified persons as Rectors. The regulation is clear about who can be appointed a rector.
