“Justice Polycap Hamman is a vacation judge, the case will be reassigned to another judge for adjudication,” the source said.
Meanwhile, the case, which was filed by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has been adjourned till Friday.
The National Association of Nigerian Students, South West zone on Monday announced the commencement of a protest on the Lagos-Sagamu Expressway.
According to the association, the protest was organised as a result of the lingering ASUU strike. The association’s position was contained in a statement by its coordinator, Adegboye Olatunji.
“Since the inception of this administration, we have seen how meagre sum is allocated to the educational sector. It is based on the foregoing that we declare a protest against the prolonged ASUU strike which has ultimately affected the progress of Nigerian students for the past six months. And, we also pass a vote of no confidence on the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, and Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.
“The protest shall be held till the strike action is resolved. Convergence point: Lagos-Ibadan Expressway (Sagamu Interchange).”
