The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reacted to the order by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) that asked its members to call off the seven-month-long strike and resume classes.
The union in a statement signed by the Lagos Zonal Coordinator, Dr Adelaja Odukoya, quoted the National President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, as saying, “our lawyer is filing an appeal and stay of execution of the judgment.”
According to the statement titled, “NICN back to work order on ASUU: Be calm”, Osodeke urged the aggrieved university teachers to remain calm as there is no cause for alarm on the back-to-work order delivered earlier today.
“Members should remain resolute and strong. A people united can never be defeated. Solidarity without compromise,’’ he stated.
