ASUU Lose Again As Supreme Court Ordered Lecturers To Resume School
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been directed to end its strike on Friday by the Court of Appeal in Abuja, according to Premium Times.
Following the National Industrial Court’ s earlier decision ordering the university lecturers to return to work, the court issued the order after rejecting the union’ s request for a stay of execution.
The union was given permission to appeal the industrial court’ s decision by a three- member panel of the Court of Appeal led by Hamma Barka, but the tribunal also stipulated that the union had to begin work before it could do so.
The authorization granted ASUU to challenge the interlocutory order of the National Industrial Court ” will be automatically vacated” if the universities are not successfully reopened, the statement stated.
The National Industrial Court’ s order was challenged by the university lecturers’ union, and it allowed them seven days to file their notice of appeal.
