Since the strike services of the private airline was grounded to a halt and even though the managing director of Aero Contractors, Obaru Ibru explained that the airline had withdrawn the dismissal of 300 out of the 650 sacked, the chairman of the committee on aviation maintained that none of the workers should have been sacked to begin with.

  1. A couple of questions:
    Where were these NLC and Senate persons when, between May and September of 2012, Jimoh Ibrahim owed staff salaries?
    Where were they in September when Jimoh Ibrahim sacked (on the pages of national newspapers) over 800 staff for protesting his ineptitude?
    Where are they as these staff are still owed those salaries and the Industrial court judges continue to adjourn judgement of the suit filed against Jimoh Ibrahim and Air Nigeria?
    Where are they now that, six months after they were sacked, these staff members have been unable to access a percentage of their pensions allowed them because the pension handlers claim Jimoh Ibrahim told them he did not sack anybody – despite there being no remittance of monies into the pensions account by the airline for over a year?
    Abegi make I hear word boh!
