Academic activities at Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) were cut shot as the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) on Thursday began an indefinite strike over unpaid allowances by the college management. The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) and the Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) are waiting in the wind as they have issued the college management 24-hour ultimatum to meet their demand.
Following the indefinite strike, thousands of students were neglected in the classrooms as lecturers refused to go attend to them. The indefinite strike by ASUP would affect the forthcoming examinations for part and full time students scheduled for this weekend for the part-time students.
On Wednesday, students of the institution protested against the closure of the hostels by the management with exams less than four weeks forcing the college management to agree to open it before the commencement of their examination.
