Abia Polytechnic Students Protest nonpayment of lecturers’ salaries

Abia Polytechnic – Barely a week after striking lecturers at Abia State Polytechnic disrupted matriculation ceremony to protest the nonpayment of their 11 months salary arrears, the polytechnic students have joined in the protest in support of their lecturers.

The students on Monday, April 16, 2018 marched along Aba-Owerri road asking the school management to pay their lecturers arrears and dues to enable them to resume classes.

One of the protesting students who spoke with newsmen during the protest which caused a heavy traffic on the highway said they are sad over the continued disruption of the school academic calendar which has prolonged their studies.

The student said ”we are protesting in sympathy with our lecturers. The management should make efforts to pay the arrears of salaries owed them to enable the lecturers to resume classes. It is a sad thing that Abia Poly is now known for strike and disruptions in the academic calendar. We are about writing our semester examinations and the lecturers are on strike. This will prolong our studies. In fact, students are the greatest losers during strikes. This is why we want the management to make efforts to pay the lecturers.”

On Monday, April 9, Abia State Polytechnic lecturers started an indefinite strike over the nonpayment of their 11 months arrears of salary and 14 months check-off dues.
