The Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has stated that it will review the Appeal Court’s decision ordering the union to cease its strike in order to decide its course of action.
The National Industrial Court’s earlier order for the union to return to work with immediate effect was upheld by the appeals court on Friday. NewsReport gathered.
In reaction to the fresh court judgment, ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, told DAILY POST that the union is yet to officially receive the Appeal Court ruling.
He said the union would after receiving the judgment, 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”.
DAILY POST recalls 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.
Miffed by the ruling, the union headed to the appellate court to appeal the ruling.
