Saleh Haladu was dismissed in 2009.
A former employee of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Saleh Haladu, has dragged the board before the National Industrial Court, alleging unlawful termination of her employment.
Ms. Haladu, who averred that she was employed by JAMB in June 2000 as an accounts officer, alleged that the board terminated her appointment in 2009 without giving her fair hearing on allegations leveled against her.
In her statement of claim, she said that the termination of her appointment was due to allegation of non-remittance of funds from the sale of JAMB forms and that the defendants did not give her the opportunity to defend herself.
The claimant, who joined the Registrar of JAMB as a defendant in the suit, also alleged that she was suspended from her duties and payment of her salary and allowances was stopped.
Ms. Haladu is therefore praying the court to declare the allegation against her as baseless and her termination as unlawful, null and void and of no effects
She is also praying the court to order the defendant to reinstate her and pay all her entitlements and salary from 2009 to date.
When the matter came up on Wednesday, the defendants’ counsel, Ibrahim Angulu, pleaded for adjournment to enable him file his processes in the case.
The presiding judge, Peter Lifu, adjourned the case to January 22 for definite hearing.
