SEC staff protest as FG recalls Oteh
21-07-2012

The Federal Government pleaded with staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC, to accept the reinstatement of the Director-General of the Commission, Ms Arunma Oteh in good faith.

Minister of Finance, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who visited SEC’s headquarters in Abuja, made efforts at pacifying and appealing to the staff to see reasons with the government, let peace reign and allow Oteh to return.
At the meeting which sources say lasted within an hour, Okonjo-Iweala, however, insisted that government will not back down on its decision to recall Oteh.

It was gathered that Spokesperson for the workers said the concern of the staff is that due process be followed by all parties in the issue so as to prevent industrial dispute. The workers also called on the government to ensure that workers who demonstrated against Oteh’s return would not be victimized.
