1,444 Oil Workers Seek Tomopolo’s Assistance to Get N11.4BN Benefits

ExxonMobil Appoints New Nigeria Managing Director

About 1,444 Exxon-Mobil employees who were laid off by the oil producing company, have demanded that the company pay them their agreed-upon termination benefits.

The workers also called Niger Delta freedom fighter, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo), and other stakeholders in the region to intervene in efforts to persuade the firm to pay them their terminal benefits, during a protest in Eket, Akwa-Ibom state.

By refusing them their N11.4 billion entitlements, they accused the oil firm of violating their rights and inflicting injustice on them.

Mobil hired the personnel on a contract basis, and they were fired off in 2012 without receiving comparable benefits as stipulated in the Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA, allegedly entered into by Mobil and the affected workers.
