The management of Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc (SAHCO) had refuted the reports of crises in the company but disclosed the action of a revolution group of aggrieved ex-workers of Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited (SAHCOL) seeking for their benefits..In a statement sent and endorsed by Mrs Adetola Uansohia, Manager, Corporate Communications of Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc saying in a meeting which had in attendance of Mr. Alexander Ayoola Okoh, the Director General (DG) of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) and the Chairman of SAHCO, resolved that the benefits of the ex- staff of SAHCOL is to be borne by the Government, through the BPE and not SAHCO.
The DG, however promised to meet with the Union for further negotiations.
She noted that it should be noted that SAHCO was officially listed as a PLC in 2018, and while BPE was handing over SAHCO to the Stock Exchange, these benefits were not part of the liabilities handed over. Hence, SAHCO is not responsible for the payment.
Mrs Uansohia pointed out that the fortress of SAHCO has grown since Dr Taiwo Afolabi bought SAHCOL from the Federal Government with a huge influx of ultra modern equipment, building of the best warehouses in West Africa, massive employment of manpower and intense trainings which has made SAHCO a pride amongst one of the best organisations in Nigeria to work with.
She disclosed that SAHCO has experienced an influx of choice Airline and Cargo clients from both Nigeria and abroad due to the intense improvement and adherence to global best practices. SAHCO who is an ISAGO and RA3 certified service provider, also has a team of engineers who builds aviation ground support equipment from locally sourced equipment all in a bid to exceed customer expectations at all times, she noted.
Recently, Mr Uansohia said SAHCO celebrated her clients during the Customer Service week with a raffle draw of choice gifts and letters of acknowledgment to show how much they mean to SAHCO. According to her, these gestures of gratitude were well received by the clients and they expressed their appreciation for the topmost aviation ground service which they are enjoying as SAHCO’s clients.
