The Academic Staff Union of Universities has vowed to appeal the order by the National Industrial Court, directing lecturers to resume work immediately.
The union said it had started assembling its lawyers led by a renowned human rights activist, Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, to file an appeal.
In a statement, Adelaja Odukoya, the union’s Lagos zone chairman, asked members to maintain composure and band together to fight to the bitter end.
According to the Daily Trust, ASUU went on strike on February 14 to enforce its demands, which include approval of a payment network that the union prefers.
You will recall that the National Industrial Court has ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to return to work.
In a lawsuit, the federal government requested that ASUU be given permission to end its seven-month strike.
On behalf of the federal government, the Minister of Labor and Employment sent the case to the court in order to address the problem of the ongoing ASUU strike.
