Cash-Strap Forces PDP To Sack Half of its Staff In Abuja

Frustrated by financial difficulties, the biggest opposition political party in Africa, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has sacked 50 percent of its staff working at the national headquarters of the party.

The party has in a memo signed by its Deputy National Secretary, Agbo Emmanuel communicated the decision to the affected staff although it did not state reasons behind the sack.

But a source at the national Secretariat of the party who did not want his name in print said that the party is forced to take the action because it is broke.

“The party is forced to take the action because it is broke. It can’t continue to shoulder such a huge staff strength,” our source disclosed.

In the memo entitled “Disengagement of staff” addressed to the “downsized staff”, PDP said the action was taken sequel to the adoption of the NEC decision of February 22 which recommended the retrenchment of 50 percent of staff strength

The memo reads: “Affected staff must first show evidence of disengagement signed to them by the National Secretary’s office before payment.

“All affected staff must be cleared and issued clearance certificate indicating that they are not financially or materially indebted to the party. Consequent upon the above, all affected staff must hand over all party documents, materials, office keys and their identity cards for clearance.”
