Court has ordered lecturers to call off ASUU Strike.
Newsone reports that the National Industrial Court of Nigeria on Wednesday ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities to call off its ongoing nationwide strike.
This online news platform understands that ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022, to press home the demands for improved funding for universities, a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.
Newsone Nigeria reports that several meetings between ASUU and President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government had ended in a deadlock.
Consequently, the Federal Government went to court to challenge the strike.
The federal government, through its counsel, James Igwe, prayed the court for an interlocutory injunction restraining ASUU from taking further steps as regards the ASUU strike, pending the determination of the substantive suit.
