Ex-workers: It is the duty of the government to pay them – SAHCO

Mr. Basil Agboarumi, Managing Director, SAHCO PLC

Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc (SAHCO) says it is the duty of the Federal Government of Nigeria to pay its ex-workers while refuting the claim that it is in crisis due to a revolution of a group of aggrieved ex-workers.

 According to SAHCO in a statement in Lagos, “in a meeting which had in attendance the Director-General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) and the Chairman of SAHCO, BPE resolved that the benefits of the ex-staff of SAHCOL are to be borne by the Government, through the BPE and not SAHCO.”

 “The BPE DG however promised to meet with the Union for further negotiations.

 “It should be noted that SAHCO was officially listed as a PLC in 2018, and while BPE was handing over SAHCO to the Stock Exchange, these benefits were not part of the liabilities handed over. Hence, SAHCO is not responsible for the payment.”

The management of SAHCO said that the company has recorded tremendous growth since its acquisition by Dr. Taiwo Afolabi from the Federal Government. 

“The fortress of SAHCO has grown since Dr. Taiwo Afolabi bought SAHCOL from the Federal Government with a huge influx of ultra-modern equipment, the building of the best warehouses in West Africa, massive employment of manpower and intense training which has made SAHCO a pride amongst one of the best organisation in Nigeria to work with.

“SAHCO has experienced an influx of choice Airline and Cargo clients from both Nigeria and abroad due to the intense improvement and adherence to global best practices. SAHCO who is an ISAGO and RA3  certified service provider also has a team of engineers who builds aviation ground support equipment from locally sourced equipment all in a bid to exceed customer expectations at all times.

 “Recently, SAHCO celebrated her clients during the Customer Service Week with a raffle draw of choice gifts and letters of acknowledgment to show how much they mean to SAHCO. These gestures of gratitude were well received by the clients and they expressed their appreciation for the topmost aviation ground service which they are enjoying as SAHCO’s clients,” said SAHCO.
