Recession: Aliko Dangote Unable To Pay Workers’ Salaries


According to PMNEWS, investigations at one of Dangote’s companies, Dansa Foods Nig. Ltd, revealed that workers have not been paid their salaries for the past six months. . . The company, it was learnt, has laid off more than half of the workforce following dwindling sales and high cost of production caused by high exchange rate of the naira.

The company has also allegedly suspended the production of Dansa juice and other products. “We are only producing Mowa bottle water now,” a source at the company revealed.

But the workers are not taking it kindly with the management of the company and have insisted that their six months unpaid salaries be paid to them. To this end, the workers have embarked on strike to press home their demand.
