According to him, there was a rationalization exercise in the office to retire those due for retirement but he was unfortunately included in the list as he was only (25) years of age at the time working as the youth development assistant (III). Adding that although he and some others were reinstated for five months, still they got dismissed from service without the retirement benefits. Giving details of what happened to portray a case of administrative injustice.
