Our elected men and women are working really hard these days. A House of Representatives panel has summoned the chief executive officers of MTN, Glo, Airtel, Etisalat and Intel to appear before it tomorrow over the massive job losses in the telecoms sector.
The committee on telecommunications, chaired by Saheed Fijabi (APC, Oyo), said the five service providers have questions to answer regarding their recent actions of sacking many Nigerians without justifiable cause.
Yes, without justifiable cause. They forgot that the biggest cause was recession which made it impossible for Nigerians to avoid to talk as they used to talk. They can just legislate out recession and make the economy grow.
But that said, our companies must handle employees with dignity. You need to compensate people even as they depart the doors.
