Written by Kayode Sanni on September 16, 2022
The National Industrial Court has adjourned the suit filed by the Federal Government challenging the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to Monday, the 19th of September.
Counsel to the Federal Government, JAMES IGWE at the resumed sitting earlier today, asked the court to give the suit an accelerated hearing due to the urgency of the matter to enable the students to return to school.
Counsel to ASUU, FEMI FALANA, SAN argued that the matter was adjourned to Friday for further mention and not for hearing, noting that he has been served with the Federal Government’s Interlocutory injunction.
Justice POLYCARP HAMMAN subsequently adjourned the suit to Monday 19, 2022 for a hearing of the interlocutory application of the Federal Government.
