MEDIA NEWS: Despite Money Made From Election Advert, AIT Owes Workers 1 Year Salary

Scores of workers of Daar Communications Plc, operator of African Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower FM Radio, on Wednesday shut down all broadcasting activities at the Benin studio in protest over unpaid salaries. The protesting workers were said to have blocked the main entrance to the station located along the Benin/Lagos bypass. A detachment of anti-riot policemen were however called by the management of the station to forestall any break down of law.

It was gathered that the protesting workers put at 50 of AIT and Ray Power, were owed salaries salaries spanning between 12 and 17 months.

One of the protesting workers who did not want his name in print for personal reasons, said newly employed staff of AIT were being owed 12 months while old staff were yet to be paid salaries between 13 months and staff of the Raypower FM, the Radio arm of the broadcast outfit were owed 17 months.

“The stations generate millions of naira on a daily basis, so there is no reason why we should not be paid our salaries. They have no excuse not to pay us our money. It is share wickedness and man’s inhumanity to his fellow man. We have families to care for and children to pay their school fees. Many of our children have stopped going to school. But their own attend schools abroad.

“Look at where our station is located, in another village so far away from Benin City. You have to chatter a taxi carb for not less than N500.00 to get there if you miss the staff bus.

@jesse: DAAR is known for delaying worker's salary. i can still remember back then when i was in Portharcourt, the raypower staff their shut down the station over non-payment of salary. DOKPESI should address this public embarrassement to his firm. is it that he did those adverts for GEJ for free? i guess not, because AIT opened a new office at IKEJA for more biz during the election campaign. Their Alagbado main office is a remote area of Lagos. i beleive it was part of the money accrued from those advert DAAR set up a new office at IKEJA
