Strike: Court Of Appeal Instructs ASUU Resume Work Immediately

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members are required to immediately end their eight-month strike and return to the classrooms, per an order from an Abuja-based Court of Appeal.

The National Industrial Court’s order ordering the academics on strike to return to work was overturned by the appellate court in response to a request by the lecturers for permission to appeal.

The three-member panel, presided over by Justice Hamman Barka, ruled that the union’s request to appeal the National Industrial Court’s decision ordering it to call off its strike will only be granted if the strike is called off.

The court ordered ASUU to submit its notice of appeal within 7 days and to provide proof that all of its members have started working again right away.
