Obey court ruling first, FG tells ASUU

Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, has asked the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to obey the court ruling directing lecturers to call of their ongoing strike.

“I am not ASUU, but the maximum in law is that when there is a court judgment or ruling or order, you must first obey. And then, we can apply for an appeal if you so desire or apply for stay, that is, stay of execution.

So, the maximum in law, jurisprudence, and everything about the law, is that you obey the court’s ruling, judgment or order, no matter how bad”, the minister said.

Recall that on Wednesday, a National Industrial Court sitting in Abuja gave an order restraining ASUU from continuing with its strike.
