THE Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it is set to appeal the order by the National Industrial Court (NIC) ordering the suspension of its seven months old strike.
The union stated this in a statement circulated to members of the union on Wednesday by the Chairman of Lagos Zone of ASUU, Adelaja Odukoya, urging members to “remain calm” as ASUU’s counsel, human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falani, is already filing an appeal.
The statement entitled; “NIC Back to Work Order on ASUU: Be Calm,” urged members and Nigerians to remain united as the order would be vacated.
“Our Comrade President, Comrade Victor Osodeke, has urged members of our Great Union to remain calm as there is no cause for alarm on the back to work order delivered earlier today.
“Our lawyer is filing an appeal and stay of execution of the judgment. Members should remain resolute and strong. A people united can never be defeated. Solidarity without compromise,” the statement reads.
