Strike action:NAPS Condemns Attack On Fed Poly Bida Rector’s Aide

By Amos Tauna, Kaduna-

The National Association of Polytechnic Students, NAPS, has condemned in strong terms the recent mob action led by the Chairman of the Bida Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP-BD, Dr Umar Sagarnuwan on the media aide to Rector of the Polytechnic, Mr. Abdulkadir Abdullahi Yahaya.

Comrade Sunday Akanbi, 
Senate President, NAPS, alleged in a statement he personally signed and made available to Forefront that the attack on the media aide to Rector was over his refusal to join a strike action embarked upon by the union.

Comrade Sunday Akanbi, 
said  the ASUP-BD Chairman is currently under suspension by management of the polytechnic for publishing false and misleading information about the polytechnic and led a team of some academic staff to physically assault the Rector’s media aide, Abdulkadir Abdullahi in his office.

The statement explained, “The victim suffered a major dislocation on his arm as a result of the ruthless and unscrupulous attack from these thugs who were supervised by the suspended ASUP chairman himself.

“The mob which came for the media aide’s life also attacked another staff, and a female student of the department of Mass Communication who held down the chair which was intended to be smashed on the media aide’s head.

“This is bad, rascal, preposterous and highly condemnable. The world and security agencies should hence, take note that the lives of the Rector’s aides in Federal Polytechnic Bida, are under threat by the suspended ASUP chairman in the school.”

The further stated, “Mr. Umar Mohammed Sarganuwan, should be held responsible for any further attack unleashed on these persons and members of their families.”
