The dust hasn't seemed to settle from the standpoint of ASUU going by the claims by its president that it only called off the 8-month old industrial action due to court order.
According to Emmanuel Osodeke, president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), a court ruling directing lecturers to do so was the primary factor in their decision to start teaching.
Since February 14, ASUU had been on strike to raise awareness of its demands, which included more financing for universities and a review of professors' pay among other things.
The union was told to end its strike by the Abuja-based court of appeal on October 7.
The postponement of the industrial action was announced by ASUU's national executive council (NEC) on Friday.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
