The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, says it will appeal the order by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) asking its members to call off the seven-month-long strike.

The University of Abuja chapter chairman of ASUU, Dr Kasim Umar, stated this while reacting to the order by court in Abuja.

Umar said the national executive Council of ASUU will meet today to conclude modalities on the appeal process.

Meanwhile, the Pro-Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Prof. Ahmed Modibbo Mohammed, has advised the federal government to apply caution in handling the crisis with the union.

According to Modibbo, the said court order cannot resolve the lingering crisis between ASUU and the government.

Reacting to the court judgment, Professor Modibbo, while appealing to both the government and ASUU to embrace dialogue in order to find a lasting solution to the strike, insisted that resorting to force was not a solution.

He stressed that dialogue remains the best means to resolve the crisis rather than just giving a fiat order.
