Minister shuts down Gbara

Nigerian’s Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nkiru Onyejiosha has taken decisive action to ensure the safety of workers by ordering the closure of a Metal Manufacturing Company, ‘Gbara’, near Sotubo, in Sagamu local government area of Ogun State.

This action was prompted due to the company’s failure to provide protective gear to its workers despite repeated warnings from the Occupational Safety and Health department of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.

Onyejiosha emphasized the government’s commitment to upholding safety standards, stating that the company’s refusal to comply with safety regulations led to the shutdown. She expressed deep concern about the hazardous conditions uncovered during her visit to the factory, highlighting the lack of protective gear such as boots and helmets for the workers handling lead, a highly harmful substance.

She underscored that the government, under President Bola Tinubu’s administration, will not tolerate any disregard for safety regulations that endanger the health and well-being of citizens. Onyejiosha firmly stated that the company would remain prohibited until its management commits to following the established laws governing workplace safety in Nigeria.

Additionally, she condemned the exploitation of Nigerian laborers by companies that prioritize profit over the safety and dignity of workers, affirming that the government stands against such practices. The minister emphasized the importance of operating within legal frameworks and condemned any actions that compromise the health and safety of Nigerian workers.
