ASUU Files 14 Grounds of Appeal Against Order Forcing It To Call Off Strike

Date:

The interim injunction directing ASUU members to resume work, followed an application FG filed through its lawyer, Mr. James Igwe.

 

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has finally appealed the judgement of the National Industrial Court, NIC ordering it to call off its strike of over 7 months.

 

ASUU filed the appeal at the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja.

 

The union, in a 14-ground of appeal it lodged through its team of lawyers led by a frontline human rights activist, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN, equally applied for a stay of execution of the judgement.

 

It will be recalled that the NIC had in a judgement that was delivered last Wednesday by Justice Polycarp Hamman, ordered the striking varsity lecturers to return to the classroom, pending the determination of a suit the Federal Government filed to query the legality of their strike action.

 

The interim injunction directing ASUU members to resume work, followed an application FG filed through its lawyer, Mr. James Igwe.

 

Justine Hamman held that the order was both in national interest and for the sake of undergraduates in the country that have been at home since February 14.

 

He held that the strike action was detrimental to public university students that cannot afford to attend private tertiary institutions.

“The balance of convenience tilts in favour of the applicant.

“I hold that this application is meritorious and this application is granted”, Justice Hamman ruled.
