The National Industrial Court of Nigeria has ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off its protracted nationwide strike.
The Industry Court gave the order on Wednesday.
ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home the demands for improved funding for universities, a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.
Several meetings between ASUU and the Federal Government had ended in a deadlock.
Consequently, the Federal Government went to court to challenge the strike.
The federal government had through its counsel, James Igwe, prayed the court for an interlocutory injunction restraining ASUU from taking further steps as regards the strike, pending the determination of the substantive suit.
