Court orders ASUU to call off strike



ASUU President Prof Emmanuel Osodeke

The National Industrial Court of Nigeria on Wednesday ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities to call off its ongoing nationwide strike.

The LENTORLITENEWS reports that ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home the demands for improved funding for universities, a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.

Several meetings between ASUU and the Federal Government had ended in a deadlock.

Consequently, the Federal Government went to court to challenge the strike.

According to TheCable, the government, through its counsel, James Igwe, prayed the court for an interlocutory injunction restraining ASUU from taking further steps as regards the strike, pending the determination of the substantive suit.
