Fayemi credited Adelabu for the massive turnaround of basic education in Ekiti especially, in the areas of infrastructure, manpower development of teachers, procurement of instructional materials, among others.

He prayed that God would grant her long life, good health and more years of selfless service to the state in particular and the country in general.

“On behalf of the government and good people of Ekiti State, I congratulate our amiable Prof. Adelabu as she joins the club of the septuagenarians today.

’’I wish her many more blessed years in good health and prosperity”, the governor added.

Bristow Helicopters sacks 100 pilots and engineers

Published

on

No fewer than 100 pilots and engineers have been sacked by Bristow Helicopters.

This is coming barely 24 hours after Air Peace sacked scores of pilots across its fleet while slashing staff salaries by up to 40 per cent.

This was contained in a statement released by the airline company on Tuesday, August 4.

The company disclosed the workers were layed off due to the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on its operations.

The aviation company which described the sack as “painful”, said it engaged with the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) to negotiate a fair and equitable redundancy compensation for those affected.

The statement partly read;

“This decision has not been made lightly, but having considered the state of the business and the very serious constraints caused by the spread of the COVID-19 disease and the downturn in the oil and gas market, the company must now take this painful, but decisive step to ensure the continuity of its business and delivery of essential services to its clients.

“One of these measures includes the right-sizing of the business to ensure that the company has the optimal level of personnel to continue the safe delivery of its services to its clients, whilst allowing the appropriate capacity for future growth.

“Accordingly, and with much regret, the company has taken the very difficult decision to release over 100 pilots and engineers (both National and Expatriates) over the next couple of weeks.”
