Over Hundred Professors to Defend ASUU in Court



No fewer than hundred members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, who are professors of law may be defending the union against the Federal Government at the National Industrial Court, NIC, on Monday (today).

The NIC, on Sunday, summoned the FG and ASUU to appear before it on Monday in Abuja over the lingering strike embarked upon by the union over seven months ago.

This is coming after all efforts by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to return the striking lecturers to class failed.

ASUU president, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke confirmed the court case, saying “that is what I was just told, I’m currently on my way to Abuja for the case”.
