Court orders ASUU to call off strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been ordered by the National Industrial Court to end its strike.
The strike has been in effect for seven months enomaomoruyi reports.
The Court granted the Federal Government’s request for an injunction against the lecturers, citing section 18 of the Trade Disputes Act and the national interest of Nigerian students.
The order to suspend the strike was issued by Justice Polycap Hamman while ruling on an application filed by the Federal Government requesting that the University teachers be forced to return to work pending the resolution of their demands for better working conditions.
