Police Service Commission recalls sacked staff after court order

Daily Nigerian

The Police Service Commission, PSC, said it has complied with a court order to recall a sacked staff.

A statement by the spokesman of the commission, Ikechukwu Ani, said PSC would continue to operate within the confines of the rule of law and respect orders from courts of competent jurisdiction.
The commission also said it had not declined to comply with the judgment of the National Industrial Court in Suit No. NICN/ABJ/11/2014 of 7th October, 2016, where it was directed to recall some of its staff disengaged due to irregular appointments.

The commission has since approved the recall of the staff and has also put in place processes for their immediate resumption of duty.
“Their letters of recall are currently being processed. It is also instructive to explain that the affected Staff were only inherited by the present Commission which did its best to regularize their defective recruitment but to no success,” the statement added.
