National Industrial Court resumes after annual vacation

Activities resumed on Tuesday at the National Industrial Court of Nigeria nationwide, after seven-week vacation.

The vacation, which began on Friday, July 31, and ended on Monday, September 27, was announced via a circular dated July 5, and signed by NICN President, Justice Benedict Kanyip.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that there was no court sitting during the vacation.

However, during the period, Justice Bashar Alkali delivered a ruling that was filed via a motion on notice due to the urgent nature of the suit.

Alkali granted an interlocutory injunction urging the National Association of Resident Doctors to suspend its 64-day-old strike and return to work immediately.

Meanwhile, lawyers and litigants were seen on the premises of the Area 11, Garki headquarters office and the Area 3 headquarters annex of the court in Abuja on Tuesday either going for proceedings or filing processes.
