The Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Friday, ordered ASUU to call off its strike immediately.
This is coming after the Industrial Court had on September 21, 2020 ordered the Union to resume academic activities.
A three member panel of the Court of Appeal led by Hamma Barka granted the union permission to appeal the ruling of the industrial court but ruled that it must first resume work to be allowed to file the appeal.
The Court of Appeal ordered the striking union with immediate effect call off the eight months strike, having struck out ASUU’s application for a stay of execution of the lower court’s order.
Moreso, the court gave ASUU seven days within which to file the appeal following the obedience of the ruling of the lower court.
The Court also granted ASUU “conditional leave to appeal the order of the Industrial Court, while insisting that ASUU must obey the order of the lower court with effect from today, October 7.
The three members panel held that failure to adhere to the order, will make the appeal incompetent before Court of Appeal.
