ASUU Sets to Appeal NIC Judgement
Sequel tot he judgement made by the Industrial court on Wednesday, ordering the striking lecturers to return back to class, the Academic Staff Union of Universities will today file an appeal against the ruling of the National Industrial Court.
Counsel for ASUU, Femi Falana (SAN), disclosed this in an interview in Abuja on Thursday.
It is important to note that ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home its demands for improved funding for universities and a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.
Justice Polycarp Hamman on Wednesday ordered the union’s members back to work.

Meanwhile, the Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities has said the crisis between the Federal Government and ASUU is not an issue that should be taken to court.
