More than 50 staff of the Olusegun Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, Ogun State have been dismissed as a result of the economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Olanike Ogunleye, Head of Human Resources, Administration, and Procurement, in a letter, said the decision was made because of the negative impacts of Coronavirus on the organisation.

The letter reads in part; "As you are aware, the current COVID-19 pandemic has had a toll on all our business significantly.

“This has resulted to making some difficult business decisions. Due to this situation, we regret to inform you that your employment will be put on hold till further notice.

“You are to hand over all company properties in your possession to the human resource department, who shall do a confirmation of the exit clearance process before your final entitlements (if any) would be paid.”

The letter was handed to all affected staff on May 25th.

Eons Intelligence also learnt that the organisation owed staff several months of salaries before the dismissal.

The Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library is owned by former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo.
