    Leadership Nigeria reported that former staffs of Jos Steel Rolling Mills have sought the intervention of the National Assembly in the operation of the liquidated company. The former employees of the steel company staged a peaceful protest in Jos, capital of Plateau state when members of the the House of Representatives Committee on Privatization visited the state for oversight function, to drive home their demands. They also requested the federal lawmakers to look into the non-payment of their outstanding benefits.

Comrade Maxwell Cirman, chairman of the Iron and Steel Senior Staff Association said the liquidation of the company to private individual has brought about untold hardship and unemployment as staff were thrown out of their residential houses which was meant to be leased out to them in accordance to the monetization policy.

He alleged that the investor has rented and mortgaged the housing estate to source for fund as a means of income and even sold out some equipment which were tested and ascertained to be in good shape as at when the company was handed over to the Ukrainian firm.

Mr Cirman stated that From all indications, as evidenced by the recent discoveries of orchestrated vandalization of the mills, looting of the laboratory equipment,contact with Katsina and Oshogbo Mills to clear the stock of billets which the Ukranians have brought for production,kick-off the leasing/selling of the club house and guest houses situated at Tudun Wada Jos and the general tendency towards criminal degradation of the Mill, Zuma interest is just to corner and milk the estates even as the rightful owners of the quarter have been denied their due. The five year severance of the workers bastardly paid by the liquidator in the ratio of 75% and 25% respectively instead of the total severance package computed by HR which was eight and half years severance.

The Company has become a shadow of its former self as the Rolling Mill which had in time past developed indigenous manpower, reduced steel importation, provided employment for over 400 persons before 2005 before the staff were laid off as a result of the federal government initiated privatization policy had its last production in 2004.
