The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has appealed the Federal Government on 14 grounds to the Abuja-based Court of Appeal.
The National Industrial Court (NIC) has recently ordered the union to end its seven-month strike.
ASUU requested a stay of execution of the verdict and filed an appeal through human rights advocate Femi Falana, SAN.
Recall that on Wednesday, Justice Polycarp Hamman ruled that the university lecturers on strike must return to the classroom while the Federal Government’s lawsuit challenging the validity of their strike action is being adjudicated.
ASUU members were ordered to return work by the interim injunction as a result of an application the FG made through James Igwe, its attorney.
According to Justine Hamman, the ruling was both in the best interests of the nation and of the undergraduates who have been living at home since February 14th.
According to him, public university students who cannot afford to attend private postsecondary schools suffered as a result of the strike action.
