The Accra High Court’s has asked the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) to reinstate its deputy General secretary, Kwadwo Awotwe Nkansah.
The Labour Division of the court presided over by Justice Laurenda Owusu on Wednesday granted an application by Mr Nkansah for an interlocutory injunction restraining GNAT from retiring him until his suit was determined by the court.
GNAT sought to effect the compulsory retirement of Nkansah from active service which caused the latter to seek the attention of the court.
However, the court ordered Nkansah to sign an undertaking which would bound him to pay any damages GNAT would incur as a result of his reinstatement in the event that he lost the substantive case.
The court fixed the commencement of hearing of the substantive case on June 8 and asked his legal team to respond to an amended statement of defence filed by the legal team of GNAT.
