AIT sacks over 50% staff despite owing 2-year salary arrears
In what is seen in some quarters as a ploy not to pay the outstanding salary of not less than 24 months, emeritus Chairman of Daar Communications, High Chief Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi, has sacked more than half of the media house workforce.
The sack was conveyed to the affected staff in a letter dated June 2 and signed by the Senior Manager, Human Resources, Mr Victor Okasoga.
The affected staff who were owed an average of two-year salary arrears were told in their various letters that their disengagement took effect from June 13.
They were ordered to submit all the company’s properties in their possession, particularly their identity cards before their entitlement are processed.
