Labour threatens over FG’s plan to sack 3,500 workers

By Victor Ahiuma-Young

Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, yesterday rejected plans by the Federal Government to sack 3,500 public servants on the guise that the  their appointments were irregular and unauthorised, threatening to cripple government operations nationwide if it went ahead with the plan.

The body recalled that when it got wind that the Federal Government had concluded plans to sack about 6,000 workers because they were alleged to have been illegally recruited by the last administration, the Association filed a Suit in the National Industrial Court, NIC, to forestall the move, insisting that the matter was pending at NIC.

ASCSN in a statement by its Secretary-General, Alade Bashir Lawal, expressed shock that the Federal Government wanted to send 3,500 employees to the over-saturated labour market.

“The greatest tragedy of this insensitive planned retrenchment is that the Association has already taken the Federal Government to court on this matter and the least we expect in a normal democratic society is for the Government to allow the court process to be pursued to its logical conclusion and in the interim maintain status quo ante on the matter.

‘’It must be emphasized that if citizens begin to disrespect the judicial process and resort to self-help as this government has been doing, sooner or later, the entire society will be engulfed in anarchy,” the union said.’’

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and
    tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
