Regarding his intention to penalize some employees for joining unions, Salako had asked for a stay of execution of the judgment.

The judge, Justice J.D. Peters, dismissed the case after concluding that the appeal lacked substance and ordered the petitioner to pay the proceeding’s costs in the amount of N100,000.

In a previous ruling from May 2022, the court fined the FUNAAB VC N200,000 and ordered him to stop asking employees questions.

The workers, therefore, dragged Salako to the court and won.

He said, “I have read and understood all the processes filed for and against. I note that there is no order or directive of the Court of Appeal to this court to stay any execution of the said ruling.
