Quit Notice for SNA WORKERS

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transport and Aviation have ordered that redundant workers of SNA who are operating garages and catering services on the premises of the Meteorological Department must stop doing business on government premises. A senior official of the Ministry of Transport and Aviation said to this press that government intends to develop the land on charlotte Street for improved meteorological services in sierra Leone and so the need to ask former members of the Sierra Leone National Airlines, a defunct government parastatal and the caterer doing business within the premises of the meteorological department to quite the premises is necessary.

The SNA workers, now redundant, and who have not yet received their End of Service Benefits from government have been disturbed by this decision. They say they welcome government’s initiative to improve on the service, but that it would send them out finding their daily bread as motor repairs is the only way by which they earn their living these days. However, an official of the Ministry of Transport and Aviation said although the Ministry sympathizes with the former SNA workers, “development comes first on President Koroma’s agenda for change”.

 The Permanent Secretary, Mr. Sahr Kpullum has emphasized to staff members of the department that the Minister, Mr. Vandi O. Minah, wants the Sierra Leone’s meteorological services to be in line with international standards.

This department will  soon be transformed into an authority, making it a government agency rather than a government department.

The Minister, according to the Permanent Secretary is accusing the Director of Meteorological Department for allowing a clerk of the department to do petty trading in front of the department’s premises and using stores of the department to keep their wares.
