The suit filed by the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, to compel the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and the Federal Government to call off the ongoing strike action has been struck out by the National Industrial Court, NIC, sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday.

Justice Polycarp Hamman closed further proceedings in the matter following the withdrawal of the suit by the factional President of NANS, Umar Faruk Lawal.

When the matter came up on Tuesday, Lawal, notified the court that he had filed a motion for discontinuance.

He said his decision to withdraw the suit was because of the challenge by NANS, which contested his standing and denied that he is the President of the student body, as he had deposed to.

Though the other two respondents were not represented, however, counsel to ASUU, Marshal Abubakar, informed the court that he was not opposed to Lawal’s application to withdraw the suit.

Consequently, Justice Hamman struck out the matter.
