…directs her lawyer to file a libel suit against Cynthia Valeria Raphael.
The General Manager, Nike Late Resort, Enugu Barr Mrs Ugochi Madueke has refuted an allegation that she sacked some staff of the Hotel and replaced them with those from her area.
Reacting to the libelous allegations posted on social media by one Cynthia Valeria Raphael, the General Manager said the allegations were fake and that she has instructed her lawyer to commence a court proceedings against “Cynthia Valerian Raphael” for character assasination and libel.
Below is her reaction obtained by Akelicious.
“Good evening everyone, it has come to my notice the fake news going around on Social Media saying that 30 staff of Nike Lake Resort were unjustly disengaged from the service without compensation. This is not only a gross misrepresentation of facts but a defamation of character.
For the avoidance of doubt, it is open knowledge that the Government of Enugu State is currently upgrading Nike Lake Resort in line with international standards. Part of this upgrade involves performance evaluations on the staff to ensure the desired competencies are available.
A total of 9 Staff members who performed poorly in the performance evaluation and had spent more than 25 years in the system were involuntarily retired in line with the Organizations retirement policy. These 9 ex-staff members were also paid six months gross salary in lieu of notice the same day. This is verifiable.
The Government of Enugu State gave a cash gift of #100,000 each to 14 long serving staff members as a Christmas gift, this was duly shared to them. This is also verifiable. I wonder where the claims of Keke came from.
The desire of the Enugu State Government is to take Nike Lake Resort to international standards. Organisations have policies that guide their operations and the Management of Nike Lake Resort followed the policy on involuntary retirement. People are meant to ask questions where in doubt.
I am open to any enquiry on this matter to the limits of Nike Lake Resort confidentiality policy.
My lawyers have been instructed to start litigation proceedings against “Cynthia Valerian Raphael” for character assasination and libel.
