Strike: We’ll review Appeal Court judgement – ASUU

THE Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it would review the judgement of the Appeal Court that ordered the union to end its strike, to determine its next line of action.

Recall that the appeal court today ordered the union to return to work as earlier ordered by the National Industrial Court with immediate effect.

In reaction to the fresh court judgement, ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, said the union is yet to officially receive the ruling.

He said the body would after receiving the judgement, go through the document with its lawyers and decide on its next line of action.

He said, “We have not received the ruling, when we get it, we will review it with our lawyer and then we can take the next step”.

Recall that the Federal Government, following its inability to reach a truce with the university lecturer, dragged ASUU to the National Industrial Court on September 11.

The court on September 24, ordered the striking lecturers to return to class while negotiation with the Federal Government continues.
