MAPOLY Rector Raises Hope Of Resumption. by Temitayo (f): 9:36pm on February 24

Rector of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic(MAPOLY), Abeokuta, Dr. Samson Odedina, has said the institution is ready to resume academic activities.

This is coming just as the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP), the umbrella body of lecturers in polytechnics, suspended its two month-old strike on Tuesday, last week.

Odedina, told CAMPUSLIFE last week that the crisis rocking the institution had been resolved.

Initially, MAPOLY lecturers did not join the strike which started in the first week of December. The management of the institution even declared as festive holiday Wednesday, December 12 through to Monday, January 7. However, by January 8, the then ASUP chairman Kola Abiola announced on a radio programme that the institution was on strike, a development that surprised students.

In an interview with Campus Life, Odedina said the lecturers had received their outstanding arrears.

Odedina continued: “It has been resolved because our salary has been paid up to date and we are expecting January salary and a one month arrears in 2017.

“I had a meeting with members of the union on (last) Friday. We are eager to resume, everyone trust me as the new Rector to make things happen.The governor already promised to come and see us. We are expecting him anytime from now. All the union on campus is eager to set the ball rolling.”

He however declined comment on whether students would still resume despite the elections.

Ahead of the time, lecturers of the institution were on a partial strike described as ‘work to rule’, one of the crises that resulted from the transition occasioned by the rechristening of the institution from MAPOLY to Moshood Abiola University of Technology (MAUSTECH).

When contacted, the newly elected MAPOLY ASUP Chairman, Babatunde Osifalujo told Campus Life to direct his questions to the management.

The union was expected to hold its congress today (Tuesday) to address issues surrounding MAPOLY- MAUSTECH, among others.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
