Over 1,000 workers of the New Age Global Security and Surveillance whose services were dispensed with a month ago by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, are set to embark on peaceful protest to press for the payment of their three months salary.
Majority of the workers who were drawn from the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, said the non- payment of the three months security contract job given to their employer-New Age Global Security, which was terminated at the end of the three months contract has led to their employer owing them three months salary.
According to the workers, they planned to trek from Lagos to the NNPC Depot at Mosimi, Sagamu anytime from now to block the entrance into the depot and prevent lifting of fuel and other products to filling stations across the South West until their employer is paid the contract sum so that they can be paid their three months salaries.
When contacted, the spokesman of New Age Global Security who doubles as the Vice President of OPC, Alhaji Lateef Lawal confirmed the planned peaceful protest, adding: “Why should NNPC refuse to pay the contract money of a duly processed and signed contract. They should settle our employer so that our staff that have been deployed to the pipeline since March this year will be paid.”
Lawal said, while the surveillance job lasted, the company lost one of its members from Ogun State who was burnt to death while pursuing pipeline vandals in Sagamu.
