Latest: FG/ASUU Goes To Court
Posted on: October 28, 2013, 08:54:43 AM
A Lagos-based lawyer, Mr.Daniel Onwe, has dragged the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, before a Federal High Court, Lagos, over violation of the fundamental right to the dignity of person of the affected students, who have been out of school following the union’s strike. The suit, FHC/CS/1360/13, was
brought pursuant to Section 46(1)
and (2) of the 1999 Constitution,
Order II of the Fundamental Human
Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules,
2009 and Article 5 of The African Charter on Human and People’s Rights
(Ratification and Enforcement) Act,
Cap. 10, LFN, 1990. Onwe is asking the court for a
declaration that the indefinite strike
leading to the closure of government-
owned universities across the country
violates the fundamental right to the
dignity of person of the affected students guaranteed under Section 34
of the 1999 Constitution. He is seeking for an order directing the
Federal Government and ASUU to
resolve their differences and forthwith
re-open universities, including an
order mandating ASUU to call off their
ongoing strike action and resume their job of lecturing in the said
universities immediately. Hearing on the suit, before Justice
Ibrahim Buba, is on November 13.
