The 47-year old New Nigerian Newspapers established by the late Premier of Northern Nigeria and Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello, have been closed down…by its own employees.
The irate workers are protesting the company’s failure to pay a 10-month backlog of salaries and other benefits being owed to them, for which they blame the Northern Governors.

Also in combat with the company are its pensioners, who are angry over the non-payment of their gratuities.

Embarking on their ‘work to rule’ action, the workers have posted several placards on the walls drawing attention to their complaints and the misfortune trailing the company. 

Two of the placards read, “Sir Ahmadu Bello is weeping in his grave because of the attitude of Northern Governors”, and “Pay Us Our Monies”.
