Nigerian students have kicked against the decision of the national industrial court directing ASUU to call off its over 7 months of industrial action The students described the court decision as a betrayal of equity, stating that the government has failed in its responsibility to manage crises in the country According to the students, the court cannot force the lecturers back to classrooms when it cannot order the government to fund the university

The students argued that the federal government shouldn’t have dragged the Academic Staff Union of the Universities (ASUU) to court.

“And, we want to state categorically that the court cannot force members of ASUU back to lecture theatres,” the students added.

“And, as it stands today, with that court judgment, we maintain that the court has not resolved the problem and we reject the judgment in strong terms. The court could have said that the Federal Government should go and pay rather than say that lecturers who are on strike should go back to classrooms.
