The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics (SSANIP) has condemned the disruption of a peaceful protest by police in Abuja, just as it berated the federal government over its alleged refusal to dialogue with lecturers under the aegis of Academic Union of Polytechnics (ASUP).

SSANIP national secretary, Comrade Monday Jedege, in a statement in Ado-Ekiti said: “We condemn this barbaric action of the Abuja police command. We in SSANIP only suspended our strike to give room for the federal government to look into the lingering crisis in this sector. But till date, the government has not been able to resolve the crisis.

This is the right time for people of integrity to rise up in defence of polytechnic education in Nigeria. The sector is most neglected in terms of funding, recognition and even job placement”.

ASUP has been on strike since October 2013
