Sacked UNILORIN lecturers yet to be reinstated

Date: 2018-12-02

Two lecturers of the University of Ilorin, Dr. Kayode Afolayan and Dr. Solomon Oyelekan, who were sacked by the authorities of the institution in September 2017, but ordered to be reinstated last Tuesday by the National Industrial Court, had yet to be reinstated by the institution.

SUNDAY PUNCH's investigation on Friday indicated that the two lecturers, who are executive members of the university branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, had yet to be recalled by the management of the institution.

A National Industrial Court in Akure, Ondo State, had last Tuesday ordered that both Afolayan and Oyelekan, who were chairman and secretary of ASUU respectively, be reinstated immediately by the management of the University of Ilorin.

The court, presided by Justice Abiola Adewemimo, condemned the management of the university for terminating the appointment of the two lecturers without following due process and the rules of the institution.

The judge ordered the reinstatement of the two lecturers and payment of their entitlements and other benefits that they are entitled to till date.

SUNDAY PUNCH's checks at the university on Friday showed that the two lecturers had not been called to resume their work.

The university's Director of Information, Alhaji Kunle Akogun, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, said that he had not been around on the campus to know whether the lecturers had resumed or not.

When asked whether the university authorities had taken step to re-absorb the two lecturers, Alhaji Akogun said, "I don't know what steps the university management has taken because I have not been around."

But Afolayan, who is one of the two affected lecturers, told SUNDAY PUNCH that he had yet to resume because the university management had not recalled him.

Afolayan said, "We don't need to do anything because the university is aware of the judgement. Its lawyer was present when the court delivered the judgement.

"The UNILORIN management knows what to do. We are still waiting for their letter to tell us to resume at our offices."

Responding to a question on appealing the judgement, Afolayan said he had not been served any appeal.
