Court adjourns disengaged NNPC workers’s suit until Nov.1



IPMAN tasks NNPC on steady supply of petroleum products

National Industrial Court, Abuja, has fixed Nov. 1 for hearing of suit filed by Momodu Mohammed and six other disengaged workers of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), challenging the termination of their appointment.

Other claimants are: Umar Danladi, Mohammed Abdul, Mario Hassan, Ibrahim Garba, Jonah Nathan and T. Verdirpuye.

The claimants are challenging the purported termination of their appointment from the services of the Corporation in 2004.

The aggrieved workers also joined Pipelines and Product Marketing Company Limited (PPMC) in the suit.

The workers, who were temporary staff of PPMC Gombe Area Office, filed a suit against the company over alleged termination of their services from the corporation.

They alleged that they were laid off without notice from the corporation in 2004.

At the resumed hearing on Thursday, the case could not go on because claimants’ counsel, Hassan Omolowo was absent in court.

The first claimant, Mohammed, told the court that his counsel called and told him that he was in another court.

The judge, Justice Edith Agbakoba, thereafter, fixed Nov. 1 for the hearing in the suit.

The respondents were not represented in court by counsel.
