At the resumed hearing on Monday, the lead counsel for the Nigerian Government, James Igwe, argued his application seeking an order of the court to restrain ASUU from continuing with the ongoing nationwide industrial action.

Igwe who had asked the court to give the suit an accelerated hearing due to the urgency of the matter, argued that it would be proper for the strike to be called off pending the determination of the suit, to enable students to return to school.

Justice Peter Hamman fixed the Wednesday date for ruling after listening to the argument by Igwe.
