The Group Managing Director of Energy Group, Jimoh Ibrahim, did the unfathomable Monday when he sacked Bolu Afolayan, the Managing Director of one of his organizations, Newswatch Media Ltd. amid a live TV show in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. This followed after a prostest by a few individuals from Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, the fifth Energy Group GMD Conference held at the Nicon Luxury Hotel, Abuja.
In the wake of declaring the sack of Afolayan, who is said be Ibrahim’s companion, he went ahead to delegate on the spot Mr. Demola Abimboye as the new managing director. The protesters who had raged the hall while Ibrahim was taking his staff on a strategy lecture, propelled into protest tunes requesting for their 14 months salaries. For 15 minutes, the dramatization was shot live on AIT.
Unperturbed regardless of Ibrahim’s endeavor to spook them by calling for security agents to move them out, the protesters said the confab won’t proceed unless Ibrahim or his delegates talked with them. Spreaking after the protesters had been persuaded to have a meeting with some of the Group administrators, Ibrahim said he had no expressions of remorse owing the staff individuals since they failed to generate their salaries after he has given every one of them the fortitude to perform optimally
