Delta Broadcasting Service, Warri, owned by Delta State Government may be shut down in the next one week over issues bothering on outdated or non-availability of relevant technical equipment as well as appalling staff welfare condition, Fresh Angle International can authoritatively report.

 

A document obtained exclusively by your Soaring International Tabloid revealed that basic protective equipment such as Thunder Arrestor, is not in the state owned electronic media house as the rainy season approaches and air conditioners are not functional in “various offices”.

 

The document which was signed by leadership of Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ as well as Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers Union, RATTAWU of the station, further exposed the lack of operational vehicles, non-deployment of security personnel to the station’s premises, thus endangering the lives of staff to hoodlums and protesters as well as the nonpayment of the medical claims to workers.

 

Fresh Angle International also scooped that only one month imprest (daily running cost) was paid in 2018, while work on the irritating audio signal output of the FM arm of the station was yet to be completed as at the time of this report.

 

The two unions have resolved to invite staff in charge of revenue generation and expenditure of the media house to reveal financial details as they gear up “to respect the wishes of staff to resume the suspended work-to-rule action” over their ten-point demands, which also include the non-payment of stipends for services rendered during public holidays.
