The apex court, in unanimous decision read by Justice Olufumilayo Folasade Adekeye granted all the prayers brought by the appellants and ordered their immediate re-instatement to their former positions and that all their salaries and allowances be paid to them from the date of their sack to the date they are restored to their offices.

According to her: “We have considered the arguments of the both sides alongside the Universities Act in respect of fair hearing and there is no iota of truth in the contention that the sacked lecturers were given fair hearing. Although the Universities Act allows the Institution to employ and discipline its staff but it must be in conformity with the principle of fair hearing.
