In a motion dated 30 September,
2013, Barrister Onwe is seeking an
order of court to compel ASUU to call
off the strike it embarked upon in
protest over the unwillingness of
government to implement certain aspects of the agreement they reached
over the parlous state of Nigerian
universities and other issues. In a 15-paragraph affidavit filed along
with the motion, Onwe is asking the
court to declare that the indefinite
strike embarked upon by ASUU,
leading to the closure of government
owned universities for three months, violates the fundamental rights of the
students affected. He argued that the continued strike
action by ASUU has traumatized many
students who now engage in all sorts
of vices. Onwe posited that the plight of the
affected students has worsened as
their contemporaries in private
universities continue to attend lectures
while they remain idle at home. He urged the court to compel ASUU to
open the universities for lectures to
resume while their negotiation with
the Federal Government continues. No date has been fixed for hearing of
the suit.
