» Dismissed Workers of DSS Staff School Reinstated Into Office

The dismissed staff of the Community Staff Schools, Asokoro, Abuja have been reinstated four days after being sacked over issues related to demands for better working conditions and regularization of their appointment in line with public service rules.

Dismissed Workers of DSS Staff School Reinstated Into Office

The school, which is said to be owned and run by the Department of State Services (DSS) had allegedly sacked 140 teachers and other workers of the school for making their demands known.

The management had also asked the 1,800 pupils in the nursery, primary and secondary arms of the school to stay at home for two weeks to enable it to reorganize the school.

Reacting to the sack, the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) had earlier written the school authority to reverse and withdraw the letters of disengagement, while threatening to embark on strike action if the dismissed workers were not called back to their respective positions.

DSS spokesman, Dr Peter Afunanya on Thursday said, “The school is autonomous and not run by the DSS; it has an independent board that takes decisions for it. Though I may not be speaking for the school, I, however, learnt that no single worker was dismissed. I was also told that the school will be cutting short its earlier two-week break to resume on Thursday, 5th November 2020.”

Meanwhile, the school which was shut for two weeks re-opened on Thursday while classes are expected to commence on Friday.
