This is due to your participation in the ongoing #ENDSARSBRUTALITY# that has been going on now for some days all over the Country.

  1. The attention of The Management of MBH Power has been drawn to misinformation currently circulating on social media to the effect that this Company is currently penalizing employees of the Company who participated in the ongoing #Endsars demonstrations. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    As a responsible Corporate Citizen, MBH believes in the Rule of Law, and in the right of every human being to freedom of expression by peaceful participation in demonstrations provided that the participation does not conflict with of agreed working hours or otherwise.

    MBH Power is also totally committed to the health and safety and welfare of all its employees. In accordance with Nigerian, International Global and World Health Organization covid-19 protocols. Every employee or stakeholder of MBH is expected to wear a face mask internally or wherever interacting with the public. Any employee of the company participating in any demonstration is expected to maintain social distancing and wear a face mask; failing which, such an employee must undergo mandatory quarantine and must undergo a Covid-19 test before resuming duties and interacting with other employees of MBH.

    We take precautionary actions to avoid any possible risk of virus exposure or spread to company staff members, colleagues and other citizens.

    We must also pay serious attention to the warning issued recently by The Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) that there is likely to be an even more devastating second wave of coronavirus in the country due to non-compliance of COVID-19 health guidelines.

    The Covid-19 pandemic is not over. Warnings to this effect have been issued by governments all over the world including The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

    We trust this clarifies the position.

    Stay safe and God bless.
