Written by on September 22, 2022

A final year law student of Benue State University, Soohemba Agatha Aker, has reportedly dragged President Muhammadu Buhari, the thirty-six state governors, and others before a Federal High Court in Abuja over alleged poor handling of the dispute between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

The plaintiff is asking the court to stop the salaries and allowances of President Buhari, the governors, and all political office holders in the country until the final resolution and end of the strike.

In the fundamental right enforcement suit, the applicant filed the action for herself on behalf of all students of public tertiary institutions currently affected by the nationwide ASUU strike.

The applicant is equally seeking an order of mandamus compelling the defendants, including members of the Senate of the striking universities, to return to the first respondent their monthly salaries, allowances, and other benefits received individually or collectively from the day the industrial action of the second respondent commenced till date, pending the hearing and determination of the originating motion. Meanwhile, no date has yet been fixed for the hearing of the suit.
