Following the recent threat by polytechnic workers to embark on industrial action due to the failure of the Federal Government to implement the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) it signed with the union, the chairman of Council of Heads of Polytechnics and Colleges of Technology (COHEADS) in Nigeria, Masud Elelu said the body is not aware of the threat.

Elelu, who is also the rector of Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, said the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) had not communicated its intention to embark on another strike with them.

ASUP had threatened to embark on a national strike following government’s failure to honour its agreement with the union.

The National Publicity Secretary of ASUP, Mr Chris Nkoro, said the decision to down tools was taken at the 94th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union held recently at the Shehu Idris College of Health Science and Technology, Makarfi, Kaduna State.

But Elelu who spoke with reporters on the sideline of the 141st meeting of the body at Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), claimed ignorance of ASUP’s threat to embark on strike., and appealed to both parties to come together and find a way out.

The COHEADS boss appealed to both government and ASUP to engage in discussion to resolve any contentious issue, in the interest of the students and the polytechnic system.

He added that the group would always meet to resolve any crisis that may arise between polytechnics and colleges.
