The National Industrial Court, Abuja, on Friday ordered Auchi Polytechnic to reinstate and pay a dismissed lecturer, Dr Betty Ali-Momoh, her N6.771 million entitlement.
Justice Sanusi Kado, gave the order after listening to the submissions of Mr Davidson Alegbe, the applicant’s counsel in a motion ex-parte.
Mr. Alegbe in the motion supported by a 16- page affidavit prayed the court to make an order granting leave to the claimant/judgment creditor to enforce the reliefs as contained in the judgment delivered by the same court on February 12.
The reliefs earlier granted in favour of the claimant were for her reinstatement as a Principal Instructor 1 and payment of her salaries and allowances from Dec. 1, 2016, until the date of judgment totaling N6.771 million.
In his ruling, Justice Kado said, “I have perused all the processes filed in this suit. It is apparent that the judgment debtor has refused to comply with the judgment of this court.”
“The judgment creditor is hereby granted leave to enforce the judgment of this court via a way of execution. Order is entered accordingly”, the judge said.
The court had also awarded N100,000 as cost in favour of the claimant.
Those who were joined as respondents in the suit are the Rector, Auchi Polytechnic, Minister of Education and the Visitor to Auchi Polytechnic.
