Abuja - The National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS) on Tuesday appealed to the Federal Government to attend to the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) for their sake.
The President of NAPS, Sunday Ogbonnaya said that the appeal was one of the resolutions made at the end of its National Executive Council meeting.
"We are giving the Federal Government and NAPS two weeks to resolve their differences; otherwise we will shut down the entire system.
"We will make sure that we drag ASUU and other relevant unions in the education sector to be part of the protest.
Ogbonnaya said the 11 months old unending industrial disharmony in the polytechnic sector had affected the school calendar.
According to him, the meeting agreed that ASUP should sit with the FG delegation to end their crisis and call off the strike to save polytechnic education.
He said that the ongoing strike was making polytechnic education less attractive to young secondary school leavers.
The NAPS president said the ongoing strike was putting on hold the future of the students, which he said was dangerous for the country.
