Jimoh Ibrahim Sacks Newswatch MD, DMD On Live TV by catchfun: 2:32pm On Jan 18, 2016
Jimoh Ibrahim and his senior management staff at a lecture in Abuja which was almost disrupted by unpaid workers on Monday, 18 Jan. 2016


Energy Group Chairman and billionaire businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim has sacked the Managing Directors of his media companies over unpaid salaries of workers.
At a public lecture on the Energy Group 5th GMD Conference, aired live on AIT on Monday, unpaid journalists of Newswatch Newspapers, Newswatch Magazine and National Mirror Newspapers had stormed the ongoing conference holding at NICON Luxury Hotel, Abuja, demanding the payment of their 13 months’ unpaid salaries.
Displaying placards, asking Ibrahim to clear the unpaid salaries , the journalists, under the aegis of Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, sang protest songs and took over the venue of the conference.
The chanted solidarity songs, insisting that Ibrahim address the salary issue before the conference could continue.
Ibrahim, who could not hide his anger midway into the conference, continued to blast company heads who could not generate their own money to pay salaries despite heavy investment in the business.
The first to get the axe was the MD of Newswatch who was sacked on TV in a very dramatic fashion.
Visibly under tension, the bosses of the newspapers in the conference knew there was trouble. And trouble eventually came when Ibrahim, suddenly, verbally appointed one the directors in the conference as new head of the Newswatch.
Subsequently, he announced that he would help to pay some of the companies owing six months salaries but on the condition that the Managing Directors and Deputy Managing Directors of the companies step aside.
He stated that any of his companies that does not pay up all salaries owed by December 31, 2016, will be shut down.
Ibrahim, however, announced that the affected bosses should forward their resignation letter via email before they get termination letters from him

As the chairman and owner of the media companies, he can't claim to be unaware that workers have not been paid for 13 months. Sacking the Managing directors and forming angry on national TV is just playing to the gallery.

Jimoh Ibrahim is a scam artist.
No different to Bernie Madoff and Sir Allen Stanford. (Both serving 100 years + sentence in United States)

He buys companies and strips them of their assest enslaving staff along the way.
Of course only a comedian will believe the CEO of a company does not know he has outstanding salaries to pay.

Is he trying to tell us that he is not aware of all these things before he organised the conference?

Hmmm.. I think this move is just an act to safe face. Anyway, better late than never undecided undecided
