Reactions are still coming in ,in respect of the face off between Senator Bisau and the Nigerian Police Force.Many prominent lawyers are commenting on the legality of declaring Senator a deserter.
A Lagos based Lawyer ,Okoro Chidozie comments as follows on the trending issue.
It is wrong for the Police to declare Senator Bisau a deserter after he purportedly resigned and went ahead to contest and win election as a Senator, you can not force an unwilling employee on an employer , as long as the Senator who brought up the issues of corruption against the IG of Police complied with the requirement of serving his resignation letter and paying a month salary in lieu of notice to disengage from the police , he is no longer under their employment
There’s absolute power to resign and no discretion to refuse to accept notice of resignation-see the case of Adeyemi v Abogunde (2004) CA
By the way has the Police been crediting his salary account since he served the his resignation letter?
