House Moves To End ASUP/COEASU, FG Face-Off
The House of Representatives has decided to wade into the lingering disagreement between the federal government and members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) and Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU),with a view to finding a lasting solution.
This followed a motion on matters of urgent national importance moved by Hon. Raphael Nnanna Igbokwe (PDP-Imo) on the need to for the leadership of the House to meet with the federal government as well as the striking Unions in order to resolve the ten months old impasse.
According to Hon. Igbokwe the prolonged stay at home of the affected students poses a great danger, not only to the educational development of the students but also to the social wellbeing of the nation in general.
