The workers, who are teachers of primary and demonstration schools of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, and Ken Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic, Bori, had prayed the court to compel the Rivers Government to pay their salaries stopped since February 2016. The teachers, 102 of RSUST, 97 of IAUE and 55 of KSWP, claimed that since Wike’s order in February, their relevant institutions had refused to pay their salaries. The claimants (teachers) in suits NICN/YEN/87/2016 for IAUE; NICN/YEN/88/2016 for KSWP and NICN/YEN/89/2016 for RSUST, sued Nyesom Wike (1st defendant), for ordering the stoppage of their salaries. The claimants, who prayed the court to declare their appointments valid and subsisting, also joined the Attorney General of Rivers State (2nd defendant) and their various institutions – RSUST, IAUE and KSWP (3rd defendant) in the suit. In the originating summons by their counsel, Mr. Damian Okoro, the claimants had prayed the court to declare that they were entitled to the payments.]]>
