The management of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library on Friday sacked many of its workers without paying their outstanding salaries running into months.
A story first published by saharareporters.com said they were sacked through a letter by its Head of Human Resources, Administration and Procurement, Olanike Ogunleye in which the management of the OPL said the organisation was overwhelmed by the adverse effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and had found it hard to sustain 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,.” It stated.
