Man slumps after receiving sack letter in Kaduna



A messenger, Malam Abubakar Shu ’ aibu , 45 , of Government Secondary School , Aminu Marmara , Sabongari Zaria , Kaduna State , on Tuesday slumped into a coma shortly after receiving his sack letter .

A witness , who confirmed to the News Agency of Nigeria on condition of anonymity , said the incident happened on Tuesday morning shortly after the affected person received his sack letter .
He said that the messenger had served the state for about 11 years .

He said , “ We reported to work this morning and Abubakar Shu ’ aibu was invited to Zonal Education Office ; on reaching there, they served him with a sack letter .

“ When he returned to the school , he showed us the letter and we all advised him to see it as an act of God Almighty as nothing happens to a person without the consent of God .

“ He also admitted that that ’ s what God had destined for him , but all of a sudden , the man collapsed and went into coma instantly .
“ We acted very fast by giving him first aid. We took him up and lie him down on the floor , fanning him continuously and he gradually regained his consciousness , ’’ he said .

The source also said that the teachers begged the school principal, Malam Sa ’ idu Liman – Umar , to consider employing the sacked messenger as a temporary worker to cushion the effect in the meantime.
“ The principal agreed to render possible assistance as the case may be , ” said the source .

Officials in the Zonal Education Office in Zaria declined comment, saying that they were not directed to speak to the press.
Also , the state Ministry of Education and the state government are yet to react to the development.

Gov. Nasiru El – Rufa ’ i had directed that all messengers , cleaners and drivers who spent 10 years in service without obtaining at least a Diploma or NCE should be sacked .
