The information came in a letter signed by its Head of Human Resources, Administration and Procurement, Olanike Ogunleye.

He noted that the management of the OPL said the organisation was overwhelmed by the negative effects of the pandemic and had no option that to it reduce its workforce.

The letter reads in part, “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.  

“You are to hand over all company properties 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.”

According to a worker, who also spoke with SaharaReporters said the OPL had been owing several months of salaries.

The worker, who spoke 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.”
