The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which is currently on strike, will appeal the National Industrial Court’s decision ordering its members to return to work on Friday (today).
This information was provided in a chat with the media in Abuja on Thursday by the attorney for ASUU, Femi Falana (SAN).
Since February 14, ASUU has been on strike to force through its demands, which include more financing for institutions and a review of lecturer wages, among other things.
On Wednesday, Justice Polycarp Hamman issued a return to work order for the union’s members.
But Falana told The PUNCH that, “We are filing the appeal tomorrow (Friday) morning. We just got the certified true copy of the judgment on Thursday. The appeal will be filed first thing Friday morning.”
