COURT ORDERS RSU TO PAY FORMER VC PROF FAKAE 7 YEARS WITHHELD SALARIES.

National Industrial Court in Port Harcourt has ordered Rivers State University to pay its former Vice Chancellor, Professor Barineme Fakae his seven years’ salaries withheld by the institution.

The court also ruled that his employment with the institution is still valid.

Professor Fakae had approached the court after he was denied his salary from 2015 following a claim by the institution’s governing council that his transfer of service was irregular.

Justice P. I. Hamman in his judgment said Prof Fakae should be given all his entitlements, remunerations, and/or other privileges accrued to him as an employee who was given a letter of Offer of Appointment dated May 16, 2014.
