The Federal Government has thanked the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) for resuming duties after its warning strike.

It also commended the union for acknowledging efforts of government towards the resolution of the challenges facing polytechnic education.

In a statement, Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, said it was heartwarming that the lecturers acknowledged the unrelenting efforts of government towards repositioning higher education. He assured that government would not relent until all outstanding issues were sorted out. Ngige, however, urged other unions on strike in the education sector to emulate the polytechnic lecturers and immediately resume work in the interest of their students and the country at large.

ASUP had in a letter notified the minister of the resumption of academic activities across polytechnics and colleges of Technology with effect from yesterday.
