Following the sack of over 3000 company workers from the Savannah Sugar Company, a subsidiary of Dangote sugar companies based in Numan, Adamawa State,the host communities have said the decision is not in their interest.
The communities under auspices of Gyawana Youths Development Association (GYDA) took to the streets over the weekend in Numan demanding the management of the company to reinstate the sacked workers with immediate effect.
Mr Simon Ngbali, leader of the protesters said, the decision taken was a deliberate infringement on the agreements earlier reached between the communities and the company,as to the percentage of indigenes to be employed from the community by the company.
Ngbali said, “We call on the company to reinstate the sacked workers with immediate effect,as part of their corporate responsibility to the host community.
“The decision to disengage these people,would not go a long way in the face of unemployment in the country.
“We describe the decisions inhuman to the indigenous community whose land had been taken over by the company.
“The quota of employment formula adopted by the company on the host communities needs to looked into for review.
Ngbali lamented the environmental hazards caused by the company on the health status of the community.
All efforts to reach Sani Dawop, General Manager, Admin and Human Asset Management failed as he could not be reached on phone, or respond to text messages.
