FG Vs Asuu 

On Thursday, the attorneys for the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities informed the Court of Appeal that neither side could conclude the eight-month-old strike, despite the Appellate Court's recommendation for an out-of-court settlement.


At the hearing, James Igwe, attorney for the FG, and Femi Falana, lead counsel for ASUU, told the Court of Appeal that despite the warning, they were unable to resolve the disagreement.

The sitting judge, Justice Hamma Barka, then put the case on hold for an hour so that Falana, the lawyer for ASUU, could respond to the counter affidavit filed by the FG in opposition to the hearing of the appeal.


Falana stated at the resumption of the hearing that talks had begun and would continue until the completion of the day's proceedings. He asked the three-person panel of the Appeal Court to look at their request to overturn the decision of the Industrial Court.

As the court had recommended, the parties agreed that the court should consider the case since no peaceful resolution had been found.

The Bigbrothergisthub also says that ASUU plans to sue the Federal Government over the registration of the Congress of Nigerian Universities Academics and the National Association of Medical and Dental Academics.

On Tuesday, Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labor and Employment, awarded CONUA and NAMDA with registration certificates.

Ngige, who spoke while giving the registration certificates to the two unions, said that the two organizations would coexist with ASUU.

The Bigbrothergisthub says that ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022. This is because academics at public institutions are upset about not getting paid their allowances and want the Federal Government to give them a better welfare package.

In an interview with Channels Television, Femi Falana, SAN, the main lawyer for ASUU, said that the union would fight the Federal Government over the registration of the two unions.

"ASUU will be in court. It will be the NIC, "ASUU's attorney, Femi Falana, said Thursday on Channels Television.

Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the president of ASUU, confirmed the news to our reporter by saying, "He is our lawyer, and we follow his legal advice."
