Kogi Gov Must Obey Court Order, Reinstate Sacked KSU Lecturers – ASUU


















The Academic Staff Union of Universities, Abuja zone, has criticised Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State for allegedly refusing to reinstate the 135 sacked lecturers of the Kogi State University.
The ASUU Abuja Zonal Coordinator, Dr Theophilus Lagi, who addressed news men on Monday at the University of Abuja, said the state government must obey a court judgment ordering the reinstatement of the lecturers.
Lagi said the failure to do such was a violation of the rule of law.
The union also criticised the state government for failing to pay the workers’ salaries despite “the huge monthly revenue of N8bn accruing to the state.”
The state government had on August 14 sacked the striking lecturers for their refusal to return to work.
The sacking followed the proscription of the ASUU KSU chapter by the governor after the institution resumed from a seven-month strike. The lecturers had allegedly refused to resume work after the strike.
Lagi, on Monday, however, took a swipe at the state government for allegedly refusing to obey a court order on the lecturers.
