National president of the union, Anderson Ezeibe who made the disclosure, during a press briefing, on Friday in Katsina, stated that, the strike is meant to draw the attention of the government to the basic needs of the union, which government has consistently failed to address over the years.

According to him, the issues include non- implementation of ASUP and federal government agreement of 2010, non-payment of salaries and arrears of the new minimum wage in some state-owned polytechnics, among others.

The union further listed 10 conditions under which the proposed April 6 industrial action may be called off to include: implementation of the needs assessment report of 2014, reconstitution of the governing councils of polytechnics, release of promotional areas in federal polytechnics, among others.
