The Law Students Association of Nigeria has dragged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) before a Federal High Court in Abuja following the incessant strikes.

According to a report by TheGuardian, the suit which was filed at the court on Friday, November 20, is an order asking ASUU to return to the classroom as well as an order restraining them from embarking on any further strike.

The suit which was filed by the President of the association, Mr Blessing Agbomhere also asked the court to compel ASUU to pay N10 billion compensation to Nigerian students which according to them is for allegedly infringing on the right of the students to education as guaranteed by Section 18 of the 1999 Constitution and Article 17 of African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights and for the psychological and emotional torture metted out to them as well as the loss of valuable time following the continuous strike.

Speaking to newsmen, Agbomwere said that the suit was sequel to its findings that ASUU members had been short-changing the Federal Government by teaching in more than one university.

He said it’s investigations also revealed that members of the union were engaging in consultancy services in oil companies and collecting multiple salaries at the detriment of the Nigerian students.

  1. Funny them, this is just like the proverbial cock that left the knife that killed it and started getting annoyed with the pot
    If they want to sue, I think the government is the people they should sue

  2. Very good
    The suit should be more strong on them,why will they want to distort the future of the right citizen,which is so uncalled for. I suggest the law student should fight for the right of the student it’s really sencitive .

  3. Misplaced of priority. Are they happy with how things are going in all our institutions? They should conduct investigatios in all our institutions and give us the feedback.

  4. You should have waited till you finish your law school before practicing, welcome at least to make your lecturer proud by sue them.

  5. Have you ever ask them or federal government that what the problem is? Instead of appealing to them, you should because they working in another place. Can theye survive with what the federal government is paying them?

  6. This is funny, people that is still asking the federal government to meet up their demand and you are requesting 10B from them.

  7. That student is a fool why can’t he sue FG for poor condition of schools instead of sue Asuu who is fighting for the betterment of the our universities

  8. All thanks to the last night I pray they will have the strength to back up the struggle they have started this government deserve more than this
