Ex-aides Sue Communication Minister Over Alleged Unpaid Salaries

MINISTER of Communication, Adebayo Shittu has been dragged to court by his former aides over alleged unpaid salaries and allowances totalling N21,500,000.

The aides, Razaq Olubodun and Victor Oluwadamilare, former Personal Assistant (PA) and Special Assistant (SA) respectively in two separate suits filed on their behalf by the same counsel, Adewale Lawal Esq. are praying the court to order the payment of their outstanding salaries and allowances which the Minister denied them while serving under him.

While Olubodun, in his own suit before the Abuja Division of the National Industrial Court, NIC, captioned NICN/Abj/132/2019 is seeking to recover from the Minister the sum of N9.8m allegedly paid alongside the Minister’s salaries and allowances for 24 months, on his part, Oluwadamilare in his suit, NICN/Abj/133/2019 is claiming N11.7m being his outstanding salaries and allowances for 28 months.

They want the court to declare that the non-payment of full salaries and allowances to them for those periods as wrongful, illegal and unconstitutional and that the Minister should be ordered to pay them their unpaid salaries and allowances according to the Federal Government directive for payment of aides to the Minister of Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Equally, the claimants are asking for an order on the defendant to pay the sum of N50m to each of them and to also pay them their full taxed costs of the prosecution of the suits.
