… Denies Having Crisis
Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc (SAHCO) has said categorically that the benefits of the ex- staff of SAHCOL is to be paid by the Government, through the Bureau of Public Enterprises(BPE )and not SAHCO as has been speculated in some quarters .
This is just as the ground handling company refuted the claim that SAHCO is in crisis due to comments by angry ex. staff.
A statement signed by the Manager, Corporate Communications Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc, Mrs Adetola Vanessa Uansohia,said that in a meeting which had in attendance the Director General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises(BPE) and the Chairman of SAHCO, BPE 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.
Recall 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.
For the avoidance of doubt, the statement said 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 organisation in Nigeria to work with.
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, which is an ISAGO and RA3 certified service provider, also has a team of engineers who build aviation ground support equipment from locally sourced equipment all in a bid to exceed customer expectations at all times.
Recently, SAHCO celebrated its 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.
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.
