Workers of Dangote Cement Company alleged that they are been exploited and underpaid.
Some workers of Dangote Cement Company have accused the firm of underpaying them. Workers of the Dangote Cement Company, Obajana, barricaded the entrance of the gate and did not allow some management staff to drive in to the premises.
They called on President Buhari’s administration to probe Aliko Dangote for exploiting and underpaying workers. One of the workers who identified himeslf as Chizoba disclosed that their pay is not commensurate with the work they do.
We implore the President of Nigeria to advise Alh. Dangote to place the workers’ welfare on the front burners to ensure industrial harmony at the company. We cannot be working for one of the world’s richest men who will in turn, be paying us peanuts as salaries.
The workers said it was unacceptable for management to be paying them N20,000 naira per month when some of the management staff earn as high as a million naira per month. The management of the company declined to comment on the issue.
