ASUU To Appeal Ruling, Parents Want Strike Ended by MrLearned(m): 9:38am On Sep 22
The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Wednesday said it will appeal the ruling of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, which ordered the union to call off its ongoing nationwide strike and resume work.

The PUNCH reports that ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home demands for improved funding for universities and 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.

The government through its counsel, James Igwe prayed the court for an interlocutory injunction restraining ASUU from taking further steps as regards the strike, pending the determination of the substantive suit.


Justice Polycarp Hamman held that the application was meritorious and deserved to be granted by the court.

“The bal[/b]ance of convenience tilts in favour of the applicant.

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

[b]Order for VCs

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said the government would order vice-chancellors to re-open universities based on the court order.

“The government would order the vice-chancellors to reopen the universities in compliance with the order of the court,” he said in a statement.

The minister added that the court ruling does not preclude the government from going on with further negotiation and consultations.

No going back
Speaking to The PUNCH on Wednesday, National President, ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said the union will appeal the ruling, adding that the Federal government had denied Nigerian children their rights.

Osodeke said, “Our lawyer is filing an appeal and stay of execution of the ruling. Our members should remain calm and strong. A people united can never be defeated.

“If the FG believes that this is the best way to solve the problem, good for them. They have denied Nigerian children their rights. Nigeria has a country is going to be punished for what the FG has just done,” he said
.

“You can be sure that thousands of my colleagues will leave this country. The last time we had this kind of treatment was during the military era.”

APC lauds order
The National Vice Chairman, North-West of the All Progressives Congress, Salihu Lukman, on Wednesday said the court judgment vindicated the party.

Lukman, in a statement, said, “The NIC judgment today is a vindication of the position I expressed last year when NLC National leadership organised a so-called one-week warning strike against Kaduna State government and resident doctors at the same time.

“Sadly, here we are, the same judgment that would have been delivered before the strike commenced on February 14 is only obtained about seven months into the strike. However, it’s better late than never.”

EKSU orders resumption
Meanwhile, Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti has directed that full academic activities should resume on campus with effect from Thursday (today).

The school, according to a statement by the Head, EKSU Directorate of Information, Bode Olofinmuagun, titled, “Resumption of academic activities in EKSU”, appealed to the academic and non-teaching staff members “to give their maximum support so that both the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic sessions would be completed without further delay.”

ASUU lost first in the court of public opinion and later in the industrial court making ASUU lose back to back.

Though a bit late, ASUU really needs to reinvent itself because things have changed; They underestimated how far the times have changed.

Unlike the 80s and 90s of Nigeria when the current ASUU leadership were students in Nigerian universities, Govts alone no longer have monopoly over universities education and there is no longer military govt that is not representative of popular opinion holders and democratically elected representatives of the people.

As things stand, while ASUU calls itself an umbrella body of Academic staff of Nigerian universities, their strike is not even representative of all the academic staff and only students of universities where the ASUU guys work are affected. I am aware of some state universities that have completed their 2021/2022 session this month and starting 2022/2023 session after their current break yet they are students of state public universities ASUU claims to be fighting for.
So who is being decieved?

The strike is discriminatory against students in FG universities. ASUU right now at best is Academic Staff Union of Public Universities( ASUPU) not ASUU when all universities in Nigeria are govt owned. The name itself is a misnomer.

ASUU can not win this so should cut their losses. Only FG public universities are 100% affected. Some state universities and all the private universities are not shut or missing out.

If ASUU is saying that the FG should jettison its no work, no pay policy to pay them for the months they were on strike, will ASUU give back the months the students lost?

Oga leave all the long grammar you are speaking, the simple truth is your party APC does not value education, they would rather prioritize RUGA for herdsmen over education for students...

Tell your Party( APC) to pay the lecturers, is that too much to ask for

Nigeria is a confused nation, a judge woke up one morning and rule that school should resume without government fulfilling a signed agreement or even pay salaries. I pity students that a hungry lecturer will teach, it will be massive failure..

While is the government been adamant on giving ASUU what they want...

Get money from EFCc recovered funds.

It pains that corruption have eaten deep down the country..

The police are given dangerous weapons to stand under the sun and while like a chicken in line of duty.

Politicians sit down in a comfortable office and use pen to steal funds just for their own personal satisfaction.

Yet those who lectured u on how to gain knowledge and be useful tend to be living penny salary.

If the table turns... Police are given full scale salary and conducive environment, and lectures are happy teaching students, I am not sure Nigeria will be in a mess.

But we prefer to suffer ourselves.

Point line... Nigerian politicians are Nigerians problem.

Nigerians are still leaving like a slave to the slave masters ( politicians ) who will throw food on the floor once in four year ( vote buying ) so that we won't focus on ourself at that moment but on them.

Selling ur vote is like signature into another 16years of slavery.

Where are those who said that they can not appeal

Notwithstanding any order of the court
Where there is a conflict between the order and the provision of the cfrn
The CFRN 1999 takes precedence over the order

Right to appeal can not be denied by a court order which is constitutional

Do you attend a public University?

This court judgement is still to the disadvantage of the students.

The main point is that the demands ASUU are met completely, not partially.

Wahala dey!

The battle has ended but the war has just begun.

Let's hope the next government will be able to solve this issue and call off the strike.

Because this government are clueless. They only speak vawulence...and ASUU is the commander in Vawulence

so strike not ending soon until both parties embrace peace which is highly unlikely.

What ASUU want is implementation not promises. All the federal government has done is to make promise of payment starting from the next administration. That's bulls**t

If the offers are going to be implemented by them, even with 50% commitment from government, ASUU will call off the strike.

Honestly you guys understand nothing. ASUU has been calling off strikee since the 90s yet nothing is solved. Now you want them to call off the strike and later go back to strike again in less than 6months. Why can't the government solve it once and for all? ASUU demands are not out of place. It can be solved. There are too much wastages in governance.

then the vice Chancellors should go to classes. We can only appeal to ASSU. We can't force them. It's an organised labor union

Even you do not believe the @ bolded wink
It is either mischief or ignorance that can make you believe that N1.3 trillion for only public universities is obtained from leakages when you do not even consider the total wagebill of the whole civil service or think the only union in public universities is ASUU.

It costs PMB nothing to behave like GEJ and sign but not fulfil it and pass it to the next admin..The reality now is FG can not even afford the N1.3 trillion and if ASUU keeps on strike for ever it makes no difference on the FG revenue.
