The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has stated that the ongoing strike by the union will affect the chances of many students as they will not be able to go for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
ASUU countered the argument of Justice Hamman Polycarp of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria by noting this.
According to punchng.com, this was made known in the affidavit signed and filed on behalf of the union by Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and human rights activist who is the counsel to the union.
Justice Polycarp while delivering ruling in an interlocutory injunction application by the Federal Government (FG), ordered ASUU to call off the strike and resume back to the classroom.
ASUU who rejected the ruling of the court filed a fourteen grounds of appeal at the Court of Appeal in Abuja.
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) had also rejected the court ruling as it noted that the court should have ordered the FG to pay the striking lecturers rather than forcing them to resume back to the classrooms.
