Management of Zenith Bank Nigeria yesterday relieved not less than 300 system administrators in charge of IT Requirements of their jobs without prior warning or notice.

For months now, sources revealed that most of their job functions were reassigned to Customer Service Officers and Head of Operations, leaving the System Administrators with little or nothing to do. So it didn’t really come as a shock to discerning minds when they were handed their sack letters.

As at the time of filing this report, the only IT Staff in Zenith bank are those in the Head office, Victoria Island.

Sources have also revealed that this is the first stage in the massive retrenchment going on in Zenith as the bulk cash counters are the next target and will soon be hit by the blow, with Sanusi’s cashless society as an excuse.

In an unprecedented move, management of Zenith Bank Nigeria today 25th of July 2011,  sent no less than 350 system administrators into the labor market without prior warning. The system administrators who handle the IT requirements of all zenith branches were all sacked today. In some months past, it was discovered that most of their job functions were being reassigned to Customer service officers and Head of operations, leaving the System admins with little or nothing to do. So it didn't really come as a shock to discerning minds when they were handed their sack letters today. The most pitiful part of it is that these are people who aren't full staff but were hired by an outsourcing firm called PEOPLESPLUS. Most of these sys admins have spent nothing less than 5 years in service of the bank but were today shown the way out with little more than a months salary in lieu of notice. The only IT staff in Zenith bank today are those who are in the Head office in Victoria Island. Our sources tell us that this is just the first stage in the massive retrenchment going on in zenith bank as the people who are the next target are the bulk cash counters who will soon be shown the way out with the sanusi's cashless society as an excuse.

I was once a victim of this some years ago when i was working with an NGO. These guys feels there's no use for System Administrators since most of their employed staff can type on the computer, they see it as a waste of most, but what they fail to realise is that there's more to what meets the eye. I had to move on with life by establishing my own IT Firm. Go to computer village, everybody there claims 2 be computer literate, where they know nada.

In a quest to reduce unemployment in the country, more so, unemployment is being created, then blaming it on a flimsy decision made by Sanusi. God help this country!! :'( :'( :'( :'(
