Some former staff of 91.7 Radio Port Harcourt have threatened to take the management(the GM, Ify Onyegbule pictured) of the radio station to court over allegations it is owing outstanding salaries, pension fund and leave bonuses.

The former employees, who left the company over a year ago, are being owed salaries and other entitlements ranging from four to eight months, and have issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the management of 91.7 Radio Port Harcourt for the payment of their entitlements.

Counsel to the former employees of the radio station, Monima Karibi-Whyte, Esq., Managing Solicitor of Coronation Chambers, in a signed letter to the management of the company, dated 11th September 2015, noted that the said employees despite carrying out their duties diligently, the company failed to play its own part by paying their salaries as at when due.

The letter further noted that the situation led to his clients’ inability to perform their domestic, personal and social obligations.

This situation unfortunately forced the former employees to resign from the company as it became very unbearable.

The letter, entitled: COMPLAINT AGAINST REFUSAL TO PAY OUTSTANDING SALARY AND ALLOWANCE OWED……(THE CONCERNED STAFF), also revealed various losses suffered by the former employees as a result of the nonpayment of their salaries and other entitlements.

Karibi Whyte Esq., in the letter said in the event the management of 91.7 Radio Port Harcourt failed to comply with the request, the ex-staff will sue the company in addition to activating all lawful process with the relevant government agencies.
