Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc (SAHCO) has refuted the claim that it is in crises due to a revolution of a group of aggrieved ex-workers of Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited (SAHCOL). gathered that in a meeting which had in attendance, Alexander Ayoola Okoh, the director general of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) and Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, the chairman of SAHCO, BPE resolved that the benefits of the ex- staff of SAHCOL is to be borne by the Government, through the BPE and not SAHCO.

The DG however promised to meet with the Union for further negotiations.

Confirming the development, Mrs Adetola Vanessa Uansohia, manager, Corporate Communications , said, it should be noted that SAHCO was officially listed as a PLC in 2018, “and while BPE was handing over SAHCO to the Stock Exchange, these benefits was not part of the liabilities  handed over. Hence, SAHCO is not responsible for the payment”.

The fortress of the company has grown since Dr Taiwo Afolabi bought SAHCOL from the Federal Government with a huge influx of ultra modern equipment, building of the best warehouses in West Africa, massive employment of manpower and intense trainings which has made it a pride amongst one of the best organisation in Nigeria to work with.

The company has experienced an influx of choice Airline and Cargo clients from both Nigeria and abroad due to the intense improvement and adherence to global best practices.

SAHCO, an ISAGO and RA3 certified service provider, also has a team of engineers who builds aviation ground support equipment from locally sourced equipment all in a bid to exceed customer expectations at all times.
