In response to last week’s ban on union activities in all state-owned tertiary institutions, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma in Edo State, has filed a lawsuit against Governor Godwin Obaseki, the Edo State Government, and the state Attorney-General.

The claimants, ASUU Chairman and Assistant Secretary Dr. Cyril Onogbosele and Dr. William Odion, have asked the National Industrial Court sitting in Edo State to determine whether the state government and other defendants in the case have the power to suspend or prohibit trade union activities in AAU under Section 40 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and Section 35(3) of the Trade Unions Act, Cap. T14, Laws of Nigeria.

Following a student protest against ASUU’s ongoing nationwide strike, the state administration halted all union operations at all state-owned institutions of higher learning.
