Appeal Court Orders ASUU To Call Off Strike



The Court of Appeal has ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to return to classrooms with immediate effect.

The court also granted the application for leave to appeal filed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The appellate court explained that the leave will give room for ASUU to formally challenge the interlocutory order issued by the National Industrial Court which directed its members to resume work pending the determination of the substantive suit filed by the Federal Government against the strike embarked upon by ASUU.

In a ruling on Friday, a three-member panel of the court, led by Justice Hamma Barka ordered the striking lecturers to “immediately” call off its eight-months strike.

The court also ruled that the order to appeal against the interlocutory injunction of the National Industrial Court will be vacated if ASUU fails to comply with its directive.

It gave the lecturers’ union seven days within which to file its notice of appeal against the order of the National Industrial Court.
