BREAKING...Appeal Court orders ASUU to call off strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been ordered by the Court of Appeal to call off its strike immediately.

The court, however, granted the application on the condition that the union obeys the lower court’s ruling and calls off the strike immediately, pending the determination of the substantive suit.

The court gave ASUU seven days within which to file the appeal following the obedience to the ruling of the lower court.

Recall that on September 21, the National Industrial Court ordered ASUU to call off the strike.

The court gave the order following a notice filed by the Federal Government urging the lecturers to return to classrooms.

Ruling on the interlocutory injunction, the trial judge, Justice Polycarp Hamman, restrained ASUU from continuing with the industrial action pending the determination of the suit filed against ASUU by the Federal Government.

Miffed by the ruling, the union headed to the appellant court to appeal the ruling.
