Business THISDAY Newspaper Sacks 55% of Lagos Workers



The Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of THISDAY Media Group, Nduka Obaigbena, has sacked more than half of its Lagos workforce.

According to DailyPost, Obaigbena, in a memo dated February 23, 2016 forwarded to senior management staff of the newspaper, said all staff who were absent during what he termed as “spot check” at the Lagos office of the newspaper and were not listed therein should have their salaries stopped and considered as ex-workers in the company.


His letter reads: “Dear All: Following a continuous and continuing spot check which climaxed today on LAGOS staff on duty and working, please find below a list of bonafide NON–EDITORIAL LAGOS STAFF of THISDAY NEWSPAPERS".

“The spot check will continue in ALL THISDAY locations.”
