Strike: Court adjourns FG’s suit against ASUU till September 16
The National Industrial Court has adjourned the case between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to September 16.
Justice Polycap Hamman adjourned the matter to enable both parties to file the necessary papers for the suit.
The Head of Press and Public Relations at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Olajide Oshundun, had revealed that the matter was referred to the Registrar of National Industrial Court by the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, following which the government approached the court requesting an order for ASUU to resume while the dispute is being addressed.
ASUU embarked on strike since February this year leading to the closure of public universities for eight months now.
