Dokpesi boots out entire AIT staff in Edo

Reform or die, Dokpesi cautions PDP

Three weeks after staff of African Independent Television (AIT) including reporters, cameramen, presenters and producers demonstrated the undue delay in the payment of their salaries running into a year and six months, the management of the TV station on Tuesday decided to run rule by relieving all workers of its station in Benin city of their appointments with immediate effect.

The decision to sack all workers of the station in Edo State was conveyed in a letter dated 2-6-16 and signed by Mr Victor Okasoga, Senior Manager in charge of Human Resources department of the TV station.

The letter which came as a shock to many, stated that the appointment of those who are being owed salary for upwards of two years had been terminated with effect from June 13th, 2016, while also directing those affected to hand over all company property in, “your possession especially your identity cards to the Head of Centre.”

“Failure to surrender company properties in your possession may delay the processing of your entitlements,” the letter added.

It would be recalled, that Chairman emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, parent company of AIT, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi is being prosecuted by the EFCC on alleged N2.1bn fraud.

He was alleged to have received about N2.1 billion from the office of the National Security Adviser, NSA, for the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential media campaign.
