Ecobank debunks reports of sacking bonafide workers
Ecobank Nigeria Plc has denied reports that it has sacked some of its real workers.
The bank in a statement on Thursday, July 11, 2019, said that it only decided against renewing the contract from its third party recruitment agencies and returned those category of personnel to the recruitment agencies.
It said that some palliatives were put in place by the bank to cushion the effects on those affected.
According to the bank, these include payment of contract cessation packages of over half a billion naira paid through their employers as well as opportunity given to those with requisite qualifications to apply to Ecobank Nigeria for permanent employment.
It said that the gesture showed the demonstration of the bank’s concern and compassion for the affected personnel.
