BREAKING: NANS Rejects Industrial Court Rulings, Says ‘Black Market Judgment’
Giwa Yisa Temitope, described the ruling as a “black market judgment.
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has rejected an Industrial Court judgement which ordered Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) to suspend its ongoing strike immediately.
The National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) in Abuja had ordered ASUU to immediately suspend the ongoing industrial action.
Justice Polycarp Hamman on Wednesday held that the strike was a breach of the Section 18(1)(2) of the Trade Disputes Act, which prohibits their action.
Reacting, the National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Giwa Yisa Temitope, described the ruling as a “black market.”
Temitope said the ruling betrayed equity because the Federal Government ought not to drag the academic union before the court an initio.
