Nigerian SenateThe Senate on Tuesday warned that it would not accept a situation where Nigerians working in the telecommunications industry would be indiscriminately sacked without recourse to the global labour rules and practices.

The Senate was reacting to reports that MTN Nigeria Limited last week relieved 500 customer care representatives of their jobs following a call centre management change.

Speaking yesterday in Abuja, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Communications, Gilbert Nnaji, insisted that “As the representatives of the people we cannot fold our arms and watch our constituents being relieved of their jobs indiscriminately by employers of labour.

“We cannot in any way tolerate such. At the same time, we shall also ensure that our foreign investors are not unduly threatened.

“When my attention was drawn to this ugly development I immediately contacted the Managing Director of the company.

“Although he said that facts were somehow misrepresented in the report, he still admitted that it was only the short-term contract staff who work in the call centres that were affected.

“I then let him know that it would be proper for him to review the action especially in view of the biting economic situation in the country”.

“It is only when that option fails that the committee and by extension, Senate, would take a position to protect our people”, Senator Nnaji said.
