The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has stated it will review Appeal Court’s ruling that is compelling them to end their strike action.
The appeals court ruled on Friday that the union must immediately resume work as previously mandated by the National Industrial Court.
ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, responded to the new court verdict by telling that the union has not yet received the Appeal Court decision in writing.
He stated that after obtaining the verdict, the union would review the paperwork with its attorneys and determine its course of action.
We have not yet received the ruling, so when we do, we will evaluate it with our attorney before moving forward, he said.
After failing to establish a truce with the university lecturer, the Federal Government summoned ASUU to the National Industrial Court on September 11.
The National President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke has stated that the move by the government to register CONUA cannot threaten the work of ASUU.
Osodeke claimed that it makes no difference because the development cannot threaten his union.
The government recently registered two new trade unions for academic employees within the university system, but the Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has responded that this does not constitute a threat to its existence.
“That does not in any way affect us. We are a disciplined and focused union and we know what we are doing and what we are after. Let them register as many unions as they like. The sky is big enough for birds to fly,” Osodeke poured out.
He added that ASUU members are aware of the organization’s goal and mission and denied that any of them are saboteurs or bootlickers.
ASUU has been on strike, and according to President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s administration is unable to provide the necessary funding to restore the nation’s educational system.
Buhari added that the recent growth in the number of tertiary schools in Nigeria had increased the rivalry for funding.
