Industrial Court has ordered ASUU to call off strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been ordered by the National Industrial Court to end its current strike.
Justice Polycarp Hamman issued a decision on the interlocutory injunction requested by the Federal government, preventing ASUU from carrying out the strike until the lawsuit’s outcome.
The case was sent back to the president of the Industrial Court for reassignment to another judge, after an order by vacation judge Justice Polycap.
This decree was issued shortly after the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) threatened to prevent political campaigns from taking place nationwide until public university students returned to their classes.
On Wednesday, a few days before September 28, the formal day set by the Independent National Electoral Commission for candidates to begin their campaigns, Ojo Olumide, the chairman of the NANS National Taskforce, made this announcement at a news conference in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.
“As we promise them that we will not allow any political campaign to hold across the country until we are back to class. This government has pushed so many Nigerians students into depression. We say enough is enough; we can no longer bear the brunt from this avoidable crisis in our nation public ivory towers again,”He said
Since February 14, 2022, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been on strike since negotiations between the Federal Government and public university lecturers have not resulted in a compromise that would allow students to resume their studies.
Soon, more information.
