The Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) academic board at its meeting held on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 considered and approved the continuation of Second Semester Full-Time 2019/2020 Academic activities immediately.
Polytechnic lecturers have been on industrial action for more than two months over the federal government’s failure to meet some of their demands.
ASUP had stated some of its demands to include non-implementation of the 2014 NEEDS Report and non-release of revitalisation funds to the sector despite assurances since 2017.
However, the union issued a statement announcing the suspension of the strike with effect from Thursday, June 10.
Therefore, the strike called off led to the reopening of polytechnics to resume academic activities back.
