ASUU STRIKE UPDATE: The Only Correct Information About ASUU Strike and Resumption

 The speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila stepped into the matter, and the ASUU Strike has finally come to an end.

After many months of no academic activity, the usual problem of the government underpaying lecturers is getting resolved, because the speaker stepped into the case. 

Many bloggers have reported this news, but what many of them failed to include are the exact details concerning the strike.

I was able to speak with a professor today and some doctors (PhD), and I will share their conclusion into 4 different points. The points contain all the solid and legit info you need to know.

  1. The President, Mohammadu Buhari is expected to speak with ASUU today, 11th October 2022
  2. ASUU plans to have a rally tomorrow, where staff can discuss and ASUU branches can vote to continue, or end the strike
  3. The Strike will truly end, if President Buhari agrees to pay them the salaries owed for 8 months
  4. There are so many fake news going round on the internet about the ASUU strike.

Note that no official resumption date has been set!

The National Industrial Court had on 21 September ordered ASUU to call off the strike.

The court granted the motion on notice filed by the federal government, directing the lecturers to return to classrooms.

Ruling on the interlocutory injunction, the trial judge, Polycarp Hamman, restrained ASUU from continuing with the industrial action pending the determination of the suit filed against ASUU by the federal government.
Displeased by the ruling, the union headed to the appeal court to appeal the ruling.

It also filed a stay of execution of the ruling of the industrial court.
The Court of Appeal ordered the striking lecturers to “immediately” call off the eight months strike, having struck out ASUU’s application for a stay of execution of the lower court’s order.

It said it was within ASUU’s right to appeal the decision of the industrial court.

Agreeing with the federal government’s argument that ASUU cannot approach the appellate court with “dirty hands”, the panel held, “should the applicant fail to obey the order (of the lower court), the leave granted shall be automatically vacated.”
