Former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo Sacks Workers, Refuses To Pay Salaries



Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has sacked staff from the Presidential Library of Olusegun Obasanjo, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

In a letter from Olanike Ogunleye, its Head of Human Resources, Administration and Procurement, the OPL management said the company was devastated by the adverse effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and had found it difficult to maintain its workforce.

In part the letter reads,

“As you are aware, the current COVID-19 pandemic has had a toll on all our business significantly. This has resulted to making some difficult business decisions. Due to this situation, we regret to inform you that your employment will be put on hold till further notice. Olusegun Obasanjo.

“You are to hand over all company in your possession to the human resource department, who shall do a confirmation of the exit clearance process before your final entitlements (if any) would be paid.”

Until laying the workers off on Friday, the OPL had been owing several months of salaries.

A worker, who spoke with SaharaReporters on condition of anonymity said,

“They have been owing salaries since last year. They will pay one and it’s going to be after 3-4 months that they will pay another one.

We have workers collecting less than N30,000 and they refer to those collecting N50, 000 as senior staff and they are still owing.

“This year, they have paid just January salary and half of April salary which was paid on 20th of April.”
