ASUU appeals court ruling, ordering strike lecturers to resume.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said it would appeal the decision of the National Industrial Court, which ordered striked faculty members to cancel the strike and resume work.
The decision comes just hours after the Nigerian Students’ Association (NANS) denounced the court’s decision to revoke the seven-month strike against ASUU.
Femi Falana confirmed the court’s decision on Wednesday, hours later, saying she was preparing grounds for appeal at the time the report was released.
ASUU’s President, Emmanuel Osodeke told Channels Televsion that when trade unions criticize the ruling, they can appeal the ruling, and he’s happy that the industry court isn’t the final court.
Osodeke cited the fact that there were other higher courts dissatisfied with the ruling and said that ASUU would consult with a lawyer and take the next steps.
He said the country could be hurt by what the federal government is doing because he believes that if the strike is canceled for treatment, thousands of lecturers will leave the country in search of greener pastures.
