The National Industrial Court, Abuja, has ordered the Federal Government to pay the former staff of NITEL/MTEL their final entitlement representing 20 per cent of their annual salary within 30 days.

Justice Peter Lifu (JP), who gave the judgment, however, dismissed three other claims by the claimants.

The claimants had prayed the court to order the payment of three months’ salary in lieu of notice as their final entitlement.

Furthermore, they had demanded payment for loss of office and redundancy in line with Section 11 sub-section 12 and 13 of Staff Condition of Service and the existing labour law, general damages and cost of suit.
