A subsidiary of Dangote Group, Dangote Cement Plc has reportedly disengaged no fewer than 3,000 staff
Chairman of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote is the richest African.
One of the affected staff who pleaded anonymity said the sack was effected on the Obajana (kogi state) and Ibese (Ogun state) stations on Monday.
The dismissed staff who was a senior officer stated that he along with his former colleagues have been invited to pick up their disengagement letter.
Our source said Dangote declared a profit of sixteen (16) Naira per share at his Annual General Meeting (AGM) earlier in the year, adding that none of the staff can trace a reason to the development.
“Dangote just relieved about 3000 of us our jobs now. It’s very Pathetic here. I never imagined this, I don’t even know what to do now. I’m short of ideas now.
“No one knows what even leads to that, it was very sudden, We heard it like a rumours over the weekends, and it became a reality on Monday morning, They started from the Ibese station, no one can trace any reason to the mass sack. Because Coronavirus didn’t affect our sales at all.”
On whether drop in sales is reason for the sack, he said, “Loading (sales Operation) is on the high side, that’s the mystery on over the case. Even the ogas(most senior officers) here can’t even say this is the cause. It was a matching order from the Head Quarters.”
“It’s beyond them, Even our Human Resources officers and Director were just crying. They didn’t understand at all. You can imagined. They said they will pay necesary entitlement.” He added.
