Supreme Court reinstates 49 Unilorin lecturers

After eight years of protracted lawsuits, the Supreme Court has finally ruled that the 49 sacked lecturers of the University of Ilorin be reinstated to their respective positions. The Supreme Court ordered the immediate reinstatement of the remainder of the 49 lecturers following earlier reinstatement of five in June 2009.

The university dons were sacked for taking part in union activities of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in 2001.
