NOVAFONE Refutes Media Report Of Crisis Driven Layoffs


The management of Novafone has refuted what it describes as a false and unverifiable story published in a local newspaper against Novafone. A press release said yesterday that a local newspaper reported that the company was reducing its employees because of a crisis.

The release said the report was not verified with Novafone’s management, which could have provided clarity on the matter.

Novafone has called on journalists to endeavor to ascertain facts with the management before publication, according to the release.

“In the spirit of finding out the facts,” the release said, “we are open to giving clearances to media houses to do their own due diligence and investigation to establish the truth and facts about the allegation.”

The release admitted that Novafone is currently going through a restructuring process, which has led to some positions, like Sales Agent, in the company becoming redundant.

“Therefore, some employees have indeed received letters about their positions becoming redundant, consistent with Liberia’s Labor Laws. All employees of the company are aware of this restructuring exercise,” the release said.

While Novafone and its owners reserve their right to follow the legal processes to get justice in such events, the company said, “it encourages” the media to refrain from what it described as defaming the company’s reputation.
he management and the committed employees of Novafone will continue to remain focused and steadfast in delivering full quality services to its valued customers, the release said.
