Governor Abiodun Intervene in MAPOLY Matters Now - ASUP cry out
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic Chapter has urged Governor Dapo Abiodun to quickly intervene in matters ravaging the institution before its too late.
This appeal was made by the Union at the instance of several unanswered requests already tabled for His Excellency consideration and subsequent approval since last year.
The union decried the non-challant attitude of the government towards their agreed bargains including the convocation of Governing Council; domestication of the New Polytechnic Act; appointment of substantive Rector for the institution; immediate payment of over three sessions honorarium and subsequent stoppage to the accumulation of Part Time claims; delay in staff promotion and appointments;the issue of new minimum wage yet to be implemented in the institution, resolution to matters on pensions,entitlement and plight of MAPOLY Staff retirees and non-remittance of Union outstanding cheque-off dues, more importantly when the Union had kept to its own side of the bargain.
The Union while appreciating Prince Dapo Abiodun in his administration's swift responses towards earlier interventions, feel really betrayed by this act of the government for not heeding to those fundamental requests above saying the successful running of the institution largely depends on government yielding to those requests and timely as well. In his words, the Union Chairman, Comrade Babatunde Osifalujo submits: "while we thought of giving time out to His Excellency on those matters, two years and six months is more than enough for any government to have resolved such fundamental issues. We therefore urge the governor to attend to these issue without further delay".
The Union Chairman further appeal to the government to reciprocate the good gesture of the union through intervention for the November and December salary of workers of the Polytechnic especially at this crucial season.
