The National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to end its seven-month strike, but the union has vowed to appeal the ruling.
Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the National President, was quoted by the Lagos Zonal Coordinator, Dr. Adelaja Odukoya, as saying in a statement that “our lawyer is filing an appeal and stay of execution of the judgment.”
According to reports, the National Industrial Court ordered ASUU to end its ongoing strike.
The Court granted the Federal Government’s request for an order of injunction against the lecturers by citing section 18 of the Trade Dispute Act and the national interest of the Nigerian students in its decision.
As a result, Justice Polycap Hamman issued an order suspending the strike 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.
According to the statement titled, “NICN back to work order on ASUU: Be calm”, Osodeke urged the aggrieved university teachers to remain calm as there is no cause for alarm on the back-to-work order delivered earlier today.
