Guardian Newspaper fires 32 workers

29 June 2016, 15:31

Lagos - No fewer than thirty-two workers of The Guardian newspaper were on Tuesday sacked by the management due to dwindling income, Guardian reports.

The affected workers, it was learnt, received letters of termination of appointments on Tuesday.

Investigation revealed that over 100 workers of the company have been slated for retrenchment.

More workers are expected to receive their sack letters on Wednesday and later this week. There is apprehension everywhere as affected staff who showed up in the office were immediately issued sack letters.

One of those sacked is the General Editor of The Guardian, Jewell Dafinone who was relieved of his appointment on Tuesday along with others.

A staff of the company who craved anonymity expressed apprehension over the development, saying he was not sure of his fate in the company.

Another worker of the company who escaped retrenchment said he was not happy that the editor of the newspaper, Dafinone, was sacked.

The newspaper popularly called the flagship of Nigerian journalism, has been struggling to navigate the stormy ocean of economic woes that have befallen the nation as the company’s income dwindled overtime.
