The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Kaduna Polytechnic chapter, Musa Ibrahim, has decried the problem of infrastructural decay in the institution. 

Ibrahim who spoke during a press conference in Kaduna on Tuesday lamented that infrastructural decay has taken a huge toll on the institution.

“Our prospect of contributing more to our nation’s development is underutilised. We are grossly underfunded, and this has translated in all facets of our institution.  “The morale of our members are low and even getting lower,” the union leader said.

He said the union has begun a mass action “over the management’s unwillingness to yield to our immediate legitimate demands”.  “You may have heard, two weeks ago, that we had contemplated going on strike. We had only stayed action on the strike because of our commitment to ensuring the survival of the system in the interest of our students.  “But our magnanimity is already being taken for granted as we believe that the issues in contention are very much within management’s control, if they genuinely want peace.
