Final year student drag Buhari, all state Governors to Court over the ongoing ASUU strike
Soohemba Agatha Aker, a final year student of Benue State University has dragged President Muhammadu Buhari and the 36 state governors to court for the federal government’s poor handling of the ASUU strike.
The federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have failed to reach a concrete agreement since the industrial action began 7 months ago.
Agatha’s prayer to the court
In the fundamental right enforcement suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1684/2022, Vanguard reports that the former Benue varsity SUG president is requiring the court to put a stop to the payment of Buhari’s salaries and allowances until a final resolution is reached between FG and ASUU.
The law student is also asking the court to stop paying the salaries and allowances of the 36 state governors, and all political office holders in the country until the strike is resolved.
She is also seeking a similar order against the Chief of Staff to the President, Secretary to the government, all the Senators and the members of the House of Representatives, all the Ministers, Permanent Secretaries, heads of parastatals and extra ministerial bodies of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, all the Vice Chancellors and the members of Senate of striking Universities, as well as the salaries and allowances of striking universities and all the ASUU members.
In the suit filed by her counsel, Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume (SAN), the applicant who stated that she is currently affected by the strike listed the Federal Government of Nigeria, Registered Trustees of ASUU, President of the Senate, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Governor of Abia State as respondents of the case.
She said she is doing this on behalf of all students of public tertiary institutions that have been affected by the strike.
