It was widely reported yesterday that in a letter dated June 2, 2016, signed by Victor Okasoga, the Senior Manager in charge of Human Resources of Daar Communications Plc, the management of the African Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower FM Stations officially sacked all the workers of its station in Benin, the Edo State capital.
The letter advised the sacked staff to surrender all company properties in their possession and added, “Failure to surrender company properties in your possession may delay the processing of your entitlements”.
The company’s head of administration, in charge of Benin, Ndah Muhammed, had said the decision to lay off the workers was taken by the management at the head office of the company.
“Please, get in contact with our head office. The sacking was not from Benin here. It was from head office,” Muhammed said.
