The Academic Staff of Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) have warned the federal government against reopening tertiary institutions.

VOICE AIR MEDIA observed that the union has supported the position of its sister union, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), that there are no provisions to meet COVID-19 precautionary guidelines in universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

The president of ASUP, Anderson Ezeibe, revealed the position of the union to PREMIUM TIMES in an interview on Tuesday.

According to Mr Ezeibe, the federal government’s plan on resumption is a threat to students and lecturers.

“The truth of the matter is that we need not to be emotional about the resumption. Institutions were closed down for COVID-19 pandemic. The spread is well known and the closure of institutions was precautionary to mitigate it. The question now is what steps have the government taken in tertiary institutions between March and now,” he said.

“If schools resume now then we don’t have any need to have shut in the first place. The agitation of students and parents are only emotional and the position of private institutions owners are mainly for personal gain.”

Mr Ezeibe, however, said the polytechnic lecturers are not ready to expose themselves to risks.

“The truth is polytechnics are not ready. There are lots of practical preparations to be done. Many institutions have up to 10,000 students. We are expecting that before resumption, there should be stakeholders forum where reality steps should be discussed. Before now, polytechnic lecturers and cleaners are outsourced for nearly 10 years. What it means is that institutions rely on contractors to clean. We don’t have good healthcare facilities and many more.

“Are there isolation spaces in tertiary institutions. What about hostels capacities? How will all these be managed? The government simply wants to turn students and lecturers into Guinea pigs. Let there be stakeholders’ meetings for conclusion on resumption. This is the best solution,” he said.

Recall ASUU president, Biodun Ogunyemi, had released a press statement that schools should only be opened when considered safe for students and lecturers.

...either valid or no valid reasons, everyone will always find one reason or the other life mustn't progress with this virus..

The earlier we realize that this virus has come to t, the better it is! We cannot continue to be like this until God knows when, we just have to find a way around it, to living with it until the time being. The new normal! Let's wake up to the reality, things isn't gonna be the same... Everyone should brace up..

Enough of all these excuses.. Life must continue! If we continue this way, everyone will always have one excuse or the other why this and that shouldn't open, reasons market shouldn't open, reasons church shouldn't open, reasons we must continue with the lockdown, reasons we mustn't move around, reasons for this, reasons for that. In fact, we would always have 1001 reasons we are not ready.
