SDP Slams CBN Over Sacking Of Staff



Social Democratic party, SDP, has criticised the Central Bank of Nigeria , CBN, over the sacking of  700 hundred staff , describing the development as unhealthy.

This is even as the party called on the management of the apex bank to review its action.

Speaking to journalists yesterday in Abuja at the party’s National headquarters, National Chairman, Alhaji Shehu Musa Gaban said it was carlous and reckless for the apex bank to retrench its staff without following due process .

He alleged that sacking such staff without committing any offence amounts to  witch-hunting and transfer of aggression to the vulnerable CBN staff. “You cannot sack people without any offense, without due process or passing through HR, people will be called and given letters based on recommendation without investigation”

The Party Chieftain noted that the CBN should be mindful of the level of unemployment in the country and should not saturate the labour market by arbitrarily dismissing its staff without genuine reasons. 

He called on the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the National Assembly to urgently intervene , adding that such ugly development is not good for a government that is celebrating one year in office . ” It is not good for government that is celebrating one year in office. They should not transfer aggression to innocent staff that have committed no offence”.
