Recall prudentj2 reported that Thousands of students of the Federal Polytechnic Oko, Anambra State, on Tuesday, took to the streets to protest the prolonged strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) of the institution.

 The local chapter of ASUP has been on strike for the past one month, paralyzing academic activities in the institution. 

 Aggrieved students poured out from their hostels, blocked major entrances to the polytechnic, and chanted protest songs, demanding an immediate resumption of normal academic activities in the school.

The students defied the early morning rain, as they displayed placards with inscriptions like: “Call off the Strike now,” “The Strike is Sponsored by Kawu Boys”, “Remove Kawu now or Blood will Flow”, “One Week Warning Strike now One Month Old”, among others. 

 The spokesman of the protesting students, Azoba Ekene Solomon of Mass Communication Department, lamented that the strike came shortly after the COVID-19 lockdown, thereby further interrupting the academic calendar which had suffered because of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

He said it has been a frustrating experience for students and demanded an end to the industrial action. 

 A cross section of the students called on the Federal Government to as matter of urgency, remove the council chairman of the institution, Kale Kawu, noting that his leadership style has destroyed the peace of the institution.

The Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr Francisca Nwafulugo, appealed to the students to remain calm, noting that issues of contention between ASUP and the school management were gradually being resolved. She said the management has resolved all pending issues, except arrears of allowances for excess workload, which has been a national issue, not peculiar to the institution alone.
