ASUU has taken a decision on a court order calling off ASUU Strike.
Newsone reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), says it will appeal the order by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) asking its members to call off the seven-month-long ASUU strike.
This online news platform understands that the University of Abuja chapter chairman of ASUU, Dr Kasim Umar, made the decision of the union known while reacting to the order by the court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
The University of Abuja chapter chairman of ASUU said the national executive Council of ASUU will meet today to conclude modalities on the appeal process.
Meanwhile, Newsone Nigeria reports that the Pro-Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Prof. Ahmed Modibbo Mohammed, has advised the federal government to apply caution in handling the crisis with the union.
According to Modibbo, the said court order cannot resolve the lingering crisis between ASUU and the government.
Reacting to the court judgment, Professor Modibbo, while appealing to both the government and ASUU to embrace dialogue in order to find a lasting solution to the strike, insisted that resorting to force was not a solution.
The Pro-Chancellor of the University of Abuja stressed that dialogue remains the best means to resolve the crisis rather than just giving a fiat order.
