The Appeal Court, Ado Ekiti Division, has reinstated 118 workers of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, who were sacked in December 2019.

They included 32 staff members of the laboratory department who were reinstated by the Appeal Court on March 25 and 86 other employees consisting of both academic and non-academic staff members who were also reinstated by the appellate court on Monday.

The National Industrial Court sitting in Akure had earlier ordered reinstatement of the sacked workers in the two separate suits filed by the two groups following which EKSU appealed the verdicts.

Justice Olatunde Awotoye, of the Appeal Court, who, in the court verdict, ordered the reinstatement of the 32 laboratory technologists, said “They were unlawfully sacked by the University Governing Council which failed to comply with the provisions of the institution’s employment regulation”.
