The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU Emmanuel Osodeke says it called off its eight-month strike due to a court order and appeals from Nigerians after the National Industrial Court ruled against them in a case brought to it by the Federal Government.

Days after the appeal court judgment, ASUU called off the strike and ordered members to resume lectures but Osodeke, in an interview yesterday said the decision was not because issues brought by the lecturers were fully addressed.

Osodeke, who blamed the Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, for taking the matter to court, argued that the best way to tackle trade disputes involving academics is negotiation.

He, however, said the lecturers may be unmotivated going back to class if the no-work, no-pay policy of the Federal Government stands.
