Another Strike Looms As ASUU Reveals FG Yet To Meet Most Of Our Demands

NANS President’s Lawsuit Against ASUU And FG Dismissed By Court

by Echezona obinna

Tuesday, the National Industrial Court in Abuja dismissed a lawsuit brought by Umar Lawal, a National Association of Nigerian Students factional president, asking the court to order the Academic Staff Union of Universities to end its strike and resume teaching.

NICN/ABJ/273/2022, which Lawal said he filed on behalf of himself and NANS, was withdrawn when the case was discussed in court on Tuesday.

Lawal told the court presided over by Justice Polycarp Hamman that he had fled a motion of discontinuance on the account of the challenge by the student body which contested his standing and denied that he is the President of NANS as he had deposed to.

Justice Hamman, therefore, terminated further proceedings in the matter.


Joined in the suit with ASUU as first Respondent were the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, who were listed as second and third Respondents, respectively.

Counsel for ASUU, Marshal Abubakar, informed the court that he was not opposing the application to withdraw the suit.
