Summary of the interview on Abia Poly strike.
Interviewers : Big Bony said Anastasia Odochi of Magic FM. Interviewees: Chairman non academic staffs Abiapoly, Chairman senior staffs Abiapoly and our own man Hon. Precious Nwokodo ASUP Chairman.
They were all pointing at the same thing, lamenting on their seven months salary arrears. And how they were promise to be paid by 31st August. But instead the registrer travelled obodo Oyibo.
They also talk about how Abia poly students are reducing in number. They attributed this diminuendo to the management.
The non academic staff chairman also lamented on neglect on their own side such as rare promotion, promotion without fringe benefits. Non payment of pensioners and so on. From the looks of things the strike continues. Until they get paid.
About the new rector, they said it is not his fault for now. He met the school in debt condition. And he was the reason why they ve not gone on strike earlier before now. Speaking on the remedy on how the school will be moving forward they advice the school should add more courses and also move to their permanent site for enabling environment.
They also plead on the state Government to come to their rescue. So the indefinite strike is still on until they get their pay at least 2months to 3months pay.
Thanks for listening. Gov. Boniface cares.
