The federal government has dragged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) before an industrial court after several failed attempts to resolve the industrial dispute that has caused the closure of universities for over 7 months.

According to a statement released by the Head of Press and Public Relations at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Olajide Oshundun, the federal government filed a case before the Industrial Arbitration Court in Abuja challenging the continued strike by the university teachers, and the hearing is slated to commence today, September 12.
