The National Industrial Court, NIC, has delivered a shocking judgement against former President, Goodluck Jonathan, for making an unlawful broadcast, in 2015.
The court in its judgement, expressly rendered null and void, the sacking of Dr. Martins Thomas as the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS.
Post-Nigeria recalls that Thomas was sacked in April 2015, by Jonathan, after he lost the 2015 general elections.
His sacking was announced on a television broadcast, by the ex-President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati.
However, the President of the National Industrial Court, Justice Babatunde Adejumo, declared as unlawful Thomas’ sacking through a broadcast.
The court agreed with Thomas’ Lawyer, Bode Olanipekun, that the television broadcast sacking was invalid, because Thomas was not given the benefit of fair hearing before the decision was taken.

Justice Adejumo held that Thomas’ right of fair hearing enshrined in Section 36 (1) of the Constitution, was violated by the Jonathan administration.
The Judge also held that the sacking was not compliant with the provisions of Section 8 (2) (c) of the NHIS Act, CAP N42 Laws of the Federation 2004, which fixed the NHIS Executive Secretary’s term of employment as five years.
Thomas had through Olanipekun, prayed the court to declare his sacking as “irregular, unlawful, illegal, unconstitutional, null and void, and of no legal effect whatsoever.”
He prayed the court to order his immediate reinstatement to the office, so that he could complete the remainder of his five-year term, out of which he had only spent one year, four months, and seven days.
In the alternative, he prayed the court to compel the Federal Government to compute, and pay him what he would have earned as salaries, benefits, emoluments and entitlements, for the unused part of his five-year term.
However, Justice Adejumo declined Thomas’ prayer for reinstatement, and rather ordered the defendants to pay him “all his salaries, benefits, entitlements and emoluments, for the unused part of his five years term.”
The Judge said Thomas should be paid the sum with 15 percent interest post-judgment, until the final liquidation of the funds.
