"Stand Against Contract Based Company, It Is Not Good For Development" PAN Tasks NLC

In a bid to end unhealthy usage of the employee by some organizations, The Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN) has urged the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to stand against organizations recruiting Nigerians on a contract basis.

Mr Ezekiel Mam, The National President of the association, made the  call while speaking, concerning the celebration of Nigeria 60th  Independence Anniversary on Thursday.


Mam frowns at the rate some organizations exploit the populace by  employing them on contract basis and laying them off after a while.


According to him, such an act dehumanizes the affected workers and is inimical to the growth and development of the nation.


Mam says that many organizations derive pleasure in recruiting their workers on contract basis but after meeting their target and raising the hope of the affected persons for a few months, they dash it by sacking them.


He emphasized that NLC should discourage such act by rising against any organization be it public, corporate, or private perpetrating such act.


The PAN President however commended NLC for shelving its proposed strike, adding that it would have caused more harm than good to the average Nigerian.


“This is not the right time to go on strike because already our economy has been devastated and we are just recovering from the impact of COVID-19. All over the world, economies are stagnant.


“Today, in the country, most of the citizens are not getting permanent employment rather they are engaged on a contract basis.


“There is no need for any citizen of Nigeria to be employed on a contract basis. Staff should be permanently employed so that they have a future to benefit from,” Mam concluded.
