ASUU strike: Appeal court orders lecturers to resume work

asuu strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been ordered by the Appeal Court on Friday, to call off its strike immediately.

The court, however, granted the application on the condition that ASUU obeys the lower court’s ruling and calls off the strike immediately, pending the determination of the substantive suit.

The Appeal Court gave ASUU seven days within which to file the appeal following the obedience to the ruling of the lower court.

The National Industrial Court, on September 21, ordered ASUU to call off the strike.

The court gave the order following a notice filed by the Federal Government urging the lecturers to return to classrooms.

Ruling on the interlocutory injunction, the trial judge, Justice Polycarp Hamman, restrained ASUU from continuing with the industrial action pending the determination of the suit filed against ASUU by the Federal Government.

Miffed by the ruling, the union headed to the appellant court to appeal the ruling.
