And also the implementation of the recommendation to convert some federal polythechnics (Yabatech, Kadpoly e.t.c) to universities of technology. Heard that news since 2002.

So how did we get here?
You see, the problem is that the Governemnt runs too many schools.....and has not increased education funding to cater for the schools.
Plus, a lot of the money spent on education goes into keeping school fees low.
So, basically the solutions are either the Gofment privatisies all polythechnics or increases funding.
The governemnt should not have gone on the takeover spree that it did back in the 70's.

It seems ASUP are concerned more about their allowances and other monetary benefits than the removal of discrimination against HND holders.

That's the problem......there are too may schools under Government control and since government is refusing to increase funding for education overall, and since most funding for education goes to keeping fees low it is either governemnt increases funding (cue pro-government supporters chanting that there isn't enough money)..or increases school fees.

Striking lecturers under the aegis of
Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics
(ASUP) have gotten assurance from
Federal Government to pay N20.4 billion
salary arrears owed the lecturers.
The information came to the fore on
Tuesday, in Abuja when the Supervising
Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike,
held a joint meeting with executive
members of ASUP and the National
Association of Polytechnic Students
He however said as soon as modalities
for the payment are agreed upon
between both parties, the payment will
He said the CONTISS salary structure
being agitated for by the union had been
approved and also included in the 2014
He said the CONTISS issue had brought
the resolution of three out of four of the
demands being made by the lecturers.
Wike at the meeting noted that the only
outstanding issue yet to be resolved was
the release of the white papers of
visitation panel to the polytechnics.
He however said delay in the release of
the white papers was not peculiar to the
polytechnics sector, adding that
government was working on it.
It will be recalled that the union and
government had met in 2013 at the
commencement of the strike where ASUP
tabled 13 demands to the Federal
Both parties, however agreed on tackling
four out of the 13 demands that could be
resolved in the short term.
Some of the demands raised by the
union include setting up a Needs
Assessment Committee for the
polytechnics, implementation of the
CONTISS salary structure, constitution of
governing councils for the schools and
the release of the white paper.
Wike said government did not at any
time say there were no funds for the
Needs Assessment Committee to begin its
work, but the delay was due to the
He advised the union to state the facts
especially when addressing the public as
government was making concerted
efforts to strengthen its educational
system at all levels.
Wike noted that the aim of Tuesday’s
meeting was to identify grey areas that
could be addressed for all to move
He therefore appealed to the union to
call off the industrial action in the
interest of the country and the future of
Earlier, the National President of ASUP,
Chibuzo Asomugha, said the union was
not on strike for its own selfish interest.
Asomugha said the lecturers were
fighting to strengthen the polytechnics,
improve on the quality of students and
give them the place they deserved.
At the meeting also, National President of
NAPS, Ogbonnaya Sunday, alleged that
the striking lecturers were not fighting
for the welfare of students, especially the
issue of dichotomy between the
university and polytechnic.
Sunday, who said the students had
resolved to “tow the path of peace and
dialogue, appealed to government to
ensure a speedy resolution of all
He said, “when two elephants fight, the
grass suffers” as students were at the
receiving end of the strike because many
had taken to crime and other vices for
lack of gainful engagement.
