JusticeAccess to Justice has called on President Muhammed Buhari to request agencies and parastatals of government to adhere to the rule of law and respect court orders.

They also want him to hold accountable , any agency or institutions that comes short in this respect.

This call was made against the backdrop of alleged persistent flouting of the order of a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, which ruled that the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), should deploy to their respective departments, several trainees/employees of the NPA technical training centre who had successfully completed their technical training in 2007.

The Court recognized the subsistence of the trainees/employees employment with NPA and held that by their conditions of service they were established staff, and that the continued refusal of the NPA to deploy them is unlawful, wrongful and illegal.

The Court also ordered that the unpaid salaries be paid as claimed.
