Court orders ASUU to suspend strike

The National Industrial Court of Nigeria has ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities to end its seven-month-old strike.

Court orders ASUU to suspend strike

The order was issued by Justice Polycarp Hamman on Wednesday in response to the Federal Government’s request for an interim order against the ongoing ASUU strike.

ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to demand, among other things, increased university funding and a review of lecturers’ salaries.

Several meetings between ASUU and the Federal Government led to a stalemate.

As a result, the Federal Government went to court to challenge the strike.

The federal government’s counsel, James Igwe, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), filed the application seeking a court order restraining ASUU from continuing with the strike pending the outcome of the suit filed by the Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, was initiated.

Mr Hamman dismissed ASUU’s objection to the application when he granted the order on Wednesday.
