The Petitioner, a trained teacher ‘complained that he was transferred from

Office, in the middle of the year, with only 6 days notice, ‘without valid reasons
or cause and in an arbitrary, malicious and capricious manner, subjecting him
to selective hostile discrimination*. The Petitioner averred that no other teacher
in North – Western Provincial Council had been transferred in this manner. The
3rd Respondent (North – Western Provincial Director of Education) claimed that
the transfer was on disciplinary grounds, with the Petitioner’s consent, but the
documentary evidence contradicted this claim.
