The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been ordered to end its current statewide strike by the Nigerian national industrial court (NICN).
Since February 14, ASUU has been on strike to emphasize its demand for increased financing for universities and a reassessment of lecturers’ salaries, among other things.
ASUU discussions with the federal government have frequently come to an impasse.
As a result, the strike was contested in court by the federal government.
In order to prevent ASUU from continuing its strike while the court considers the merits of the main lawsuit, the government requested an interlocutory injunction through its attorney, James Igwe.
