COURT COMMANDS ASUU TO END STRIKE.


The National Industrial Court has ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), to call off the ongoing nationwide Strike.
.
.
ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home the demand for improved funding for universities, a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues. Several meetings between ASUU and the federal government have ended in a deadlock. Consequently, the federal government went to court to challenge the strike.
.
.
Delivering a ruling on the interlocutory injunction filed by the Federal government , Justice Polycarp Hamman restrained ASUU from continuing with the industrial action pending the determination of the suit. Justice Polycap who is a vacation judge ordered that the case filed be returned to the president of the Industrial Court for reassignment to another judge.
