MAPOLY ASUP Suspend Four-month Old Strike

The Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) has suspended its strike, which lasted for four months.

The suspension was announced by the chapter’s Chairman, Kola Abiola, after a congress held at the institution’s campus to resolve the crisis between the Ogun state Government and the union.

Abiola stated that the congress suspended the strike following the pressure put on it by many concerned prominent personalities in the state.

He said the union was hopeful that its demands would be met by the government to prompt it to conduct the suspended semester examination.

“Today, we had an emergency congress and after several appeals by eminent stakeholders within and outside the state, the congress therefore decided to suspend the strike,” Abiola said.

“The government is aware of all our key issues, all the issues which resulted in the strike are all known to the government.

“When the crisis started we actually went to prominent personalities to intervene and now that they have intervened we think it is high time we give government the room for discussion while academic activities go on.

“We have suspended the strike, and it is now left for the management to announce when academic activities will commence.”
