NANS Decries Incessant Strikes At Federal Poly Bida

Published

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has expressed concern on the incessant internal strikes at the Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger State.

NANS said that the current crisis between the rector and some factions of the Academic Staff Union of the institution on the reappointment of Dr. Abubakar Dzukogi as the rector has led to serious setback for academic activities in the school.

In a statement issued by NANS Senate president, Comrade Abubakar Mohammed, said: “Our attention has been drawn to the current crisis rocking the Federal Polytechnic Bida between the rector and some factions of the Academic Staff Union of the institution on the reappointment of the rector in the person of Dr. Abubakar Dzukogi.

“That ASUP-Federal Polytechnic Bida constant internal strikes have been borne out of greed and personal interests, not the interest of their members nor that of the students thereby setting the academic activities backwards and slow.

“That the ASUP chairman of the polytechnic, Dr. Umar Sanganuwan. is interested in the position of the rector and therefore using his office to always condemn the work of the incumbent rector.

“That the rector after a recent visit to the polytechnic has done well especially in the area of infrastructural development within the institution,” Mohammed said.

NANS added that the powers to appoint the rector of a federal polytechnic by virtue of the Federal Polytechnic Act lies with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the recommendation of the Polytechnic Council and not a factional chairman of ASUP.

“We therefore warned Dr. Saganuwan not to usurp the constitutional powers of the President and the Polytechnic Council,” he said.

NANS advised Sanhanuwan to desist from playing politics with the future of the students by leading some of his co-staff to embark on unnecessary strike actions.

It asked Sanganuwan to join hands with the rector to build a better learning environment for the students in the school.
