Jos — National executive members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) yesterday converged on Jos, the Plateau State capital, to demand payment of its members outstanding salaries in the state. They maintained that serious action will be taken if after two weeks nothing is done about their demands.
National President of ASUP, Chigozo Benjamin Asomugha, while addressing journalists in the state said the problem between ASUP members in Plateau State and the state government have been on since the inception of Jang's administration.
Asomugha who said the full implementation of its members CONPCASS is not negotiable, added, "When other organised labour unions in Nigeria declare action against the government of Plateau State, ASUP shall mobilise its members to join the action in the vanguard until the contentious matters are settled. But if the action is delayed, ASUP will take the lead."
