Xenophobic reprisal: MTN orders workers to stay at home

MTN NiXenophobic reprisal: MTN orders workers to stay at homegeria board Chairman: Dozie Chairman out, Ndukwe in

Worried by possibilities of a reprisal from the xenophobic killings and destruction by South Africans, MTN Nigeria has directed its workers to stay at home.

The telecom giant owned by South Africans also directed all its stores and service centres to be closed as a precaution until further notice.

A spokesman for the firm made this known to newsmen, saying that none of them went to work today as some of their facilities were attacked on Tuesday in Ibadan.

MTN, however, said it would continue to provide uninterrupted services as it was concerned about the safety and security of its customers, members of staff and partners.

Nigeria’s security operatives reportedly stood guard at the head office of the company on Wednesday to prevent the destruction of the company’s property.

The CEO MTN Nigeria, Ferdi Moolman, in a statement on Tuesday, said the company was against all forms of violence and xenophobia against people.

“MTN Nigeria strongly condemns hate, prejudice and xenophobia and reiterates our unequivocal condemnation of all violence. We seek to connect people, bring people together and provide a platform for everyone’s voice to be heard. We are against all forms of bigotry and discrimination; they should have no place in society,” he added.

  2. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
