FG Considering Out-of-Court Settlement With ASUU

The Federal Government may consider an out-of-court settlement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

This was revealed by a source in the Ministry of Labour and Employment, who spoke in confidence with Punch, but pleaded anonymity.

The source said the government may take the out-of-court option if the lecturers call off their strike and return to work.

The source stressed that the union was only dragged to court because of members’ refusal to return to work despite the government’s efforts.

The source said;

“We may consider an out-of-court settlement if they agree to return to work. The reason we dragged them to court initially was because they refused our pleas to return to work.

‘We met with them several times and made moves for reconciliation but they refused. The reason for going to court is for the court to compel them to go back to work.

“If they agree to resume, there is no need going ahead with the suit.”

Meanwhile, the ongoing court hearing has been adjourned till Monday, September 19, 2022.
