ASUU STRIKE: ASUU rules out returning to classes through court orders

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has revealed that the union cannot be compelled to return to classes and call off the ongoing strike.

This was disclosed by ASUU national president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke during a parley with Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajamila, prior to the judgment of the National Industrial Court of Arbitration which ordered the union to resume to classes.

Prof. Osodeke, insisted that they won’t be compelled by the court’s pronouncement and likened the situation to that of forcing medical doctors to treat patients.

Going further, Osodeke maintained that ASUU remains blameless about the closure of public universities. He warned that the universities, which account for over 95 per cent intake of students, face the risk of depreciating to the level of public primary schools within the next 10 years.
