ASUU to appeal Industrial Court Order on Friday ― Falana

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will, on Friday, file a notice of Appeal at the Appellate Court in Abuja to grant interlocutory injunction and set aside the judgment of the National Industrial Court that ordered it to call off its ongoing strike and members to go back to work.

The counsel to ASUU and human rights activist, Mr Femi Falana, confirmed this on Thursday in an interview.

He said: “We have just sent somebody to the court to collect the certified report of the judgment and get it ready for us to enable us to file our application for interlocutory order of the judgment tomorrow (Friday).

“Even though we have 14 days window to do that, we will file our appeal paper first thing tomorrow morning and that is all I can say for now on the matter.”

Recalls that the Federal Government dragged ASUU to the National Industrial Court and asked it to compel the union to call off its seven months old strike that has paralysed the academic activities in the nation’s public universities.

The court had, however, granted the prayer on Wednesday by ordering the lecturers to go back to work but ASUU did not satisfy with court’s position, hence the proposed appeal.

It, however, said that the resit would still take place in various designated centres across the state.

The statement said that the postponement became necessary to accommodate schools that had yet to register their candidates for the resit examination.

“The Board does not wish to deny the affected candidates the opportunity of taking the examination,” it added.

It urged concerned principals to take note of the new and make best use of the extended date to ensure that all affected candidates were duly carried along.

17 yr old breadwinner ditches marriage for school in Bauchi

One Maryam Alhassan from Barkoti, Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, has chosen to get educated instead of kick starting her journey to motherhood in her teenage years.

The 17-year-old teenager, is relishing the prospect of attending school for the first time after her encounter with the School-based Management Committee, SBMC, of Sabuwa-Tiffi Primary School, Ningi.

Until two months ago, Alhassan, the breadwinner of her family would hawk kunu (milled millet drink) in the morning and boiled groundnut in the afternoon in various schools around Ningi, to sustain her family, even though she has been nursing the desire to go to school like other children.

According to her, she’s the only child among the seven birthed by her parents who has not seen the four walls of formal education centre.

“I really wish to go to school like other children. Every time I see other children in their classes, I wish I were them. I am 17 years old and I live with my parents. I would love to help my parents with their finances but I also want to attend classes like others.

“My father wants to marry me off to somebody from the next village. I have nothing against marriage, but I don’t want to be a powerless wife, who waits for her husband for food. That’s why I am begging for a chance to get education, so that I can be useful to myself and the society.

“My parents have seven children but I am the only one who has never been to school. I wish I could ask my father why he didn’t send me to school but I can’t (because of tradition). I hawk different things to help my family. I sell kunu in the morning and then boiled groundnut in the afternoon. I make around N1,500 from selling only kunu,” she had said, while waiting for pupils to patronise her groundnut under a mango tree.

Meanwhile, the school committee for Girls Education Project 3 (GEP3) funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, FCDO, of the UK and implemented by UNICEF, intervened through the Chairman of SBMC, Sabuwa-Tiffi Primary School Ningi, Dahiru Ali, who reached out to Maryam’s father to allow her to attend a school like other children in the community

She told Vanguard that her father was receptive to the idea of allowing his daughter to attend school.

His words: “We met Maryam’s father a few weeks ago to know why his daughter has never been to school. After our conversation, he agreed that Maryam can now go to school. However, we will observe her closely to know the appropriate class for her because she has a unique case.”
