The Ministry of Labour and Employment team in Nigeria, Kano State Chapter, led by Alh. A Aliyu (Kano State Controller), Mr. Yakubu Madalla (Chief Labour Officer), and Nasiru Usman (Labour officer) on Monday visited Skyline University Nigeria to evaluate the university’s compliance with labour and employment law in Nigeria.
Speaking during the visit, Alh. Aliyu commends the university’s management in the following areas of labour law compliance: prompt payment of salaries and allowances in compliance with National Minimum Wage Act, enrolment of staff into contributory pension scheme in compliance with Pensions Reform Act 2014 as amended, good working environment through the provision of state of the art facilities for staff and students alike in the areas of clinic, toiletry, well equipped canteen, sports facility and a standard university library etc, and responding to the community in the area of corporate social responsibility.
Mr. Abubakar Sadiq, Director of Operations of Skyline University Nigeria, noted that the adoption of an international multicultural working practice already adopted by the management is being integrated with the recently updated Labour’s policy manual of employment. He, therefore, promised that “Skyline University Nigeria will ensure compliance to Nigerian labour standards”.
He posited that the university’s management is working hard to improve employment practices for workers through staff training, adding that the pre-inspection call by the Ministry of Labour will open the doorway for possible improvement in other areas yet to be harnessed by the staff of the university.
On behalf of the university’s management, he appreciated the team of the Ministry of Labour and Employment in Nigeria, for supporting the development and promotion of productive employment policies and programmes for employment generation and actualization of the National Action Plan on Employment Creation and the Local Employment Content initiatives of the Federal Government.
In his closing address, Alh. Aliyu expressed his congratulations to Skyline University Nigeria for its success in providing the best facility to the staff and students with respect to safety, security etc. However, he urged the management of Skyline University Nigeria (SUN) to procure a recently updated Nigeria’s labour law for future reference.
Mr. Rotimi, (HR) Skyline University Nigeria, assures the inspection team that Skyline University Nigeria would continue to hold herself to the highest standards and best practices for both its staff and student alike.
