Folasade Ogunniyi: Sweeper Yet To Get N45k Compensation 6wks After Death On Duty by ikorodureporta: 12:51pm On Oct 09
Six weeks after street cleaner Folasade Ogunniyi was knocked into a lagoon in Lagos State while on duty on the Third Mainland Bridge, the family of the deceased has yet to receive the promised N45,000 compensation by Highway Manager, her former employers.

Ogunniyi’s body was recovered from the lagoon underneath the bridge on August 23, three days after she was killed by a hit-and-run driver. Until her death, the late sweeper, a mother of three, was employed by Highway Managers, an environment sanitation firm working in collaboration with the Lagos State government.

Before her death, she was earning N15,000 per month from the company, an amount even less than the outgone minimum wage of N18,000. To compensate her family for the loss and service she rendered for the 24 months of her engagement, Highway Manager said the family would be paid N45,000.

But Ogunniyi’s husband told The Guardian, “I was always going there (the office) and I kept being asked to come back. They (High Manager) told us that they are working on her death certificate and some other things. When it is ready, they said the insurance will be paid, but I have since resigned to fate."

Highway Manager’s head at Rowe Park, Yaba, Lagos, Rotimi Sotanmi, in his reaction, said: “We have communicated with the family and we are doing our part. The agreement is that we will continue paying her salary (N15,000) for three months.”

Sotanmi, however, told The Guardian that an unnamed insurance company had all the details and was working on making a substantial payment to the family.

Everybody blaming an already crooked gov't that THEY voted in. Foolish people. sad

In developed nations, private citizens & celebrities would rally round to compensate the family but, in Nigeria, they would rally round and compensate BB9ja contestants. angry

The gov't is definitely a reflection of the people. grin

Problem is …. What Laws are in place to protect such workers, are all the safety apparatus required for the job available and adequate?...
It's a pity the person died but to say you will pay 45k to the deceased family as compensation is outright wickedness.

Las Las it goes a long way to tell us how we're valued by an employer.... get your gig and manage your life as you want.
RIP to the dead

embarassed 45 thousand Gini.

Is that one compensation.

A show just gave someone 30m cheque n gifts worth 30m for shaking ass eating quarrelling drinking and having fun but a lost life is yet to get 45k compensation. Graduates here n there no one empower them with 100k talk more 30m.

Las las we can now see what kinda society we live in.

If it were to be BBN, some Notice-Me could contribute hundreds of thousands and millions...Hence the Sweeper is not a celebrity, no one recognises her , a mother of three, it is well. GOD in his infinite mercies will comfort those she left

Your oppressors send their kids abroad

They go there to get the best medical care

Yet you fight for them on social media with your borrowed data

All because of religious and ethnic sentiments

When will you stop being a zombie?
