OFFICE OF THE SUG PRESIDENT.
THE FEDERAL POLYTECHNIC, BIDA.
GREATEST NIGERIAN STUDENTS!
Solidarity greetings to all the indefatigable Nigerian Students of The Prestigious Federal Polytechnic, Bida.
I bring you greetings from the unintimidated and highest Office of students representation of our dear Polytechnic.
Just as you read in my new year message, this is our trying time, so there is no time for merriment when our academic activities is on hold, it will interest you that we’ve been in school since on the 2nd of January, to defend your mandate;
Thus, consolidating our efforts to meet both Management of the Polytechnic and the Leadership of ASUP-BD, which by the grace of God we met with ASUP-BD yesterday and Management in the early hours of today in company of some School Presidents and State President.
We pleaded with both sides to shift grounds for each other to enable us resume as soon as possible. The ASUP-BD leadership gave reasons to why they are still on strike. And we detail them on necessity to shift ground. So, in the same spirit we extended the same consolidation to the management team and equally explain to them the condition, ASUP-BD are giving for the strike to be called off.
The management body assured us that the resolution of the Governing Council has been met and also suspensions has been withdrawn. However, the management put it clear that ASUP-BD should communicate every other request in written and submit to the management. The management also made it clear that, part of this demands can only be orderd/instructed by the Governing Council who are the highest authority of the Polytechnic of which we are expecting them any time soon.
All things being equal, i want to at this juncture advise Nigerian Students to get ready for resumption and at the same time assure you that, hopefully the school will be opened for full Academic activities on or before the 20th of this month as all issues sorounding these lingering strike must have been attended to and settled amicably, but while we keep faith in waiting, i enjoin us to intensify with prayers.
The union leadership won’t ever sacrifice your mandate and welfare.
Our earnest wishes and regard is with you as you warm up to resume.
Greatest Nigerian Students, I believe Victory is Certainly Certain.
God bless us all!.
God bless FPB
God bless Niger State
God bless FRN.
