BREAKING: ASUU takes decision after court directs lecturers’ union to call off strike
Osodeke described the court's decision as a catastrophe when he was featured on Channels Television’s “Politics Today” on Wednesday, September 21, which the video was shared on the medium’s Twitter page.
The union president said the judge has the right to deliver its judgement and the group also has the right to appeal.
ASUU maintained that the judgement did not address why the union went on strike while raising concerns about the students who have been at home for over two years.
Osodeke then raises concerns that many lecturers will leave the country with the court decision that neglected the union's concern.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the striking universities' lecturers, ASUU, have been directed by the national industrial court to return to classrooms after seven months of lecture boycott.
The industrial court sitting in Abuja gave the verdict on Wednesday, September 21, noting that national interest is at stake.
Justice Polycarp Hamman invoked section 18 of the trade dispute act, which empowered the court to order an end to the strike when national interest is at stake.
