ASUU strike: Court adjourns case till September 16

The case between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has been adjourned to September 16 by the National Industrial Court.

Justice Polycap Hamman adjourned the matter to enable both parties to file the necessary papers for the suit.

The Head of Press and Public Relations at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Olajide Oshundun, revealed that the matter was referred to the Registrar of the National Industrial Court by the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, after which the government approached the court, requesting an order allowing ASUU to resume operations while the dispute is being resolved.

ASUU has been on strike since February of this year, resulting in the closure of public universities for the past eight months.
