The Appeal Court, sitting in Ado Ekiti has ordered management of the Ekiti State University, EKSU Ado-Ekiti to reinstate the 32 technologists whose appointments were terminated by the institution in December 2019.

The management of EKSU had on December 5, 2019, disengaged over 900 of its workforce for alleged certificate forgery, irregular appointment, overage among other allegations.

The 32 disengaged technologists dragged EKSU Governing Council and Vice-Chancellor to Appeal Court, following the refusal of the management of the institution to reinstate them as ordered by the Industrial Court sitting in Akure court last year.

In his judgement today in Ado Ekiti, the presiding Judge of the Court of Appeal, Justice Tunde Awotoye declared the termination of the appointment of the 32 technologists as “unlawful, null and void.”, hence they should be reinstated.
