The youths of Rumuokwurusi in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state have reacted to the "unfair treatment" by Sudelletra Nigeria Limited to their community by picketing the company premises.
According to reports by the residents, Sudelletra company situated at KM 16 PH/Aba Expressway has over 200 hundred workforce but only 8 persons are from the community.
And the highest paid graduate worker from the community is paid N50,000.00 monthly, while other graduates that are not indigenes are paid 250,000.00 monthly. No one from the community is a staff or management staff of the company.
The angry youths also alleged that the company has also refused to give the community skill acquisitions, employments, scholarships etc.
More so, Sudelletra has been accommodated by Rumuokwurusi community for over 20 years but without any project sited by the company in Rumuokwurusi community.
However, the community is now demanding for employment of 40% of the workforce of the company to be given to the community, they should site a project in the community, increase the salary of the community workers & staff them.
They should also give skill acquisitions, scholarships, Industrial Training, & other corporate social responsibilities they own the community as their host or they will continue picketing the gate until their demands are met.
