The Court of Appeal, Abuja, has ordered members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resume work immediately.
This order was given by the appellate Court, ruling on an application by ASUU seeking permission for it to appeal against the order of the National Industrial Court (NIC) that asked the striking lecturers to resume duty.
The Court also granted ASUU conditional leave to appeal the order of the Industrial Court while insisting that ASUU must obey the lower Court’s order with effect from today, October 7.
The 3-man panel, led by Justice Hamman Barka, stated that for ASUU to file its notice of appeal within 7 days, it must come with evidence that its members have resumed work immediately.
The panel held that failure to adhere to the order would make the appeal incompetent before the Court of Appeal.
