Crises looms in Warri as INYC gives Chevron Nig. LTD 7 days Ultimatum to halt its proposed redundancy policy on over 600 Staff
By Tetsoma Neyin
Itsekiri Apex Youth body under the auspices of Itsekiri National Youth Council (INYC), has issued a seven days ultimatum to Chevron Nig. LTD to halt with immediate effect its redundancy policy on over 600 CNL Staff.
A statement issued by the Apex Itsekiri Youth body to Chevron Nig. LTD Friday October 16, 2020 stated that Chevron is taking the Itsekiri ethnic Nationality for granted as they will not hesitate to shutdown Chevron for a noble cause such as this.
"This call, no doubt, becomes expedient in order to avert the concomitant reactions which could cause serious break down of law and order across the length and breadth of the entire Niger Delta region"
"Chevron has more Americans than Africans especially Nigerians in their workforce. Therefore, it will be most appropriate to reason that America is the best place to retrench workers because they have the biggest economy and lowest unemployment rate in the world. They can absorb their people into other sectors easily but Nigeria does not have the capacity to take care of anyone who is laid off"
"Since no labour or trade union confer on the Itsekiri people and other ethnic nationalities in the Niger delta the status of an oil and gas producing communities, they must as a matter of urgency hands off any form of negotiations on all issues relating to this redundancy policy as the Itsekiri people will not allow the destiny of their bread winners to be trade off over a mess of pottage"
"Let Chevron be unequivocally told that owing to the signicance attached to these employees that majority of our people heavily depend on for their survival and of course, our employment quota which has not been completely filled in line with our crude oil and gas production quantum and the Nigerian local content law, if others compromise and trade off the interests of their employees on your payroll, the Itsekiri National Youth Council (INYC) will not allow a single itsekiri staff in your workforce to be dropped. Accordingly, we shall mobilise everything at our disposal to ensure that this evil does not happen in our life time"
"Consequent upon all the aforementioned, we are therefore giving your management seven days (with effect from today) to revoke this redundancy policy and make such revocation public or be prepared to face the full wrath of the Itsekiri people." the statement said.
In a telephone chat with Warri Voice Newspaper shortly after the publication, President of the Apex Itsekiri Youth body, Comr. Weyinmi Agbateyiniro said that Chevron has no reason to lay off workers in an impromptu manner, saying that they are very ready to unleash their furry on Chevron if, its Management fails to yield to their demands.
