7weeks after, staffers of Nigeria High Commission groans over non-payment of salaries, sends SoS to presidency

Information reaching News Hub Mag! indicates that staffers of Nigeria High Commission London are still being owed salaries.

This medium had exclusively reported weeks ago that staffers were planning to down tools over non-payment of salaries.

However, our source, who is close to a foreign staff posted by the Ministry of foreign affairs from Nigeria as foreign mission personnel told News Hub Mag! that the Commission is yet to pay salaries.

Collaborating, another staff told News Hub Mag! that, “things are going from worse to worst as we don’t have any hope of when the salaries will be cleared. This is the 7th week without salaries and nobody is saying anything to us on why we are not paid.”

News Hub Mag! gathered that the resolve of staffers to down tools as earlier planned was punctured by distrust planted by management.

“The last time we spoke I told you we were ready to down tools until we are paid but soon after your medium broke the story some of us were invited individually and questioned, that was what broke our resolve as we didn’t know who is who again.

“All we can do right down is to appeal to the federal government of Nigeria to come to our aid and ensure we receive our salaries. The non-payment of salaries is making us look irresponsible as we cant provide for our familes, it is even more hard for us given the present stay at home directive occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic,” our source said.

Efforts by our reporters to get through to the UK High Commission proved abortive, same with efforts at getting the views of the UK High Commissioner, Justice Oguntade.

News Hub Mag! will keep monitoring the situation at the Commission and keep updating our readers as issues progress.
