SIFAX Group compensates family of deceased dockworker

SIFAX Group has paid financial compensation
to the family of Mr. ThankGod Ojomah, who died as a result of an accident
involving one of the company’s haulage trucks.

Jonah Ojomah, immediate younger brother of the deceased; Mrs. Edna Nathaniel
Ojomah, wife of the deceased, and Mr. Adewale Aderibigbe Adetayo, General
Manager, SIFAX Haulage during the payment of financial compensation to the
family of Mr. ThankGod Ojomah.

The wife of the deceased, Mrs. Edna
Nathaniel-Ojomah, his immediate younger brother, Jonah Ojomah, officials of the
Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) and SIFAX Group attended the event.


Dr. Fola Rogers–Saliu, Executive
Director, HR & Admin, SIFAX Group, commiserated with the family over the
loss, adding that no financial package can adequately compensate for the
untimely death of a breadwinner. 

She prayed for the repose of the deceased’s
soul while further charging the wife to judiciously invest the money for the
benefit of her children.

She said: “We are deeply saddened by
the death of the deceased. Our boss, Dr. Taiwo Afolabi was very shocked when
the news was broken to him. 

”He gave us the mandate to provide support and
succor to the family. That’s why we were able to support the family financially
during the burial and today, we are paying compensation.

“This compensation is not for the
life lost because no amount of money, no matter how huge, can pay for life.
It’s a way of supporting the dependants of the deceased.”

Rogers-Saliu, who represented Dr.
Taiwo Afolabi, said the company would also explore any feasible means of
providing more support for the family.

On his part, the President,
Dockworkers branch of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN). Mr.
Tajudeen Ohize, lauded SIFAX Group for its maturity and concern during the
negotiation with the union. 

He noted that the union led the negotiation with
SIFAX Group due to its commitment to the welfare of all its members, including
the families of the departed ones.

After receiving the payment, Mrs.
Edna Nathaniel-Ojomah thanked the management of SIFAX Group and praised the
commitment of the workers union for coming to their aid after her husband’s
demise. 

She promised to use the compensation judiciously, in order to secure the
future of her children.
