Though the lecturers union is yet to make an official an announcement, ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke is expected to release details of the suspension this morning.
NaijaNewsNow reports that ASUU has been 9n strike since February 14, 2022 over disagreements it had with the Federal Government, including welfare of its members, adequate funding for universities and revitalization of the universities in the country.
Despite several meetings and negotiations, the disagreements persisted, making government to approach the National Industrial Court for adjustication. The NIC ordered the lecturers back to work but the union went on appeal.
The Court of Appeal, while granting them the right to appeal the judgment of the NIC, insisted they must resume work before their right to appeal can be activated.
