Court Ruling: Lecturers Will Leave Nigeria, ASUU President Warns

The president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, has warned that the ruling of the National Industrial Court ordering lecturers back to class will have far-reaching consequences.

Speaking in an interview on Channels TV on Wednesday, the don said the outcome of the verdict would be catastrophic.

He said: “Let me tell you the catastrophe of what just happened. The last time this happened was during the military era. I can assure you, when this strike is over, a large number of our lecturers will migrate out of this country. When you use violence to force your lecturers into class.

“First of all, they said, ‘If we owe them, if we don’t pay them, they will come and beg us.’ Seven months, it didn’t work. Our members are still alive. And then, they go to court, you want to force them. It is a catastrophe. No country that thinks about the future of their children, thinks about the health of the education system, that believes in education, (leader) that believes in the future of this country, whose children are in those universities, will try that.”
