“Concerning the report in a section of the media alleging that the management of Adama beverages Ltd producers of the popular Faro table water and beverages engaged in unethical conducts inimical to industrial labour relations, we wish to state that the story in its entirety is fabricated lies aimed at tarnishing the image of our company and its management led by Mr Francis Vazheparambil.
”Taking into cognizance that the so-called “spokesman” of the company’s union referenced in the story, Abdullahi Maigida Bello is not an employee of the company, we are compelled as a responsible union to set the records straight.
“For the avoidance of doubt, there has never been any case of molestation of any female worker or anyone in the entire workforce.
”Despite deep economic turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there has not been any mass sack in Adama beverages and no staff is owed salaries as all wages are paid promptly.
“The union rejects the claim that there was a blockage of roads and vehicle movement within the precinct of the factory as reported.
”The union called for the withdrawal of all fallacious publication against our COO, Mr Francis Vazheparambil, whose sterling leadership has impacted positively on the company.
“The union also called for the withdrawal of all false newspaper report against the organisation as a whole. We are proud of the organisation and also the management.
”The malicious and deliberate allegation against Mr Francis Vazheparambil cannot be swept under the carpet and we demand that the story should be retracted and apologies being made to the company and its management. Failure to do so shall be met with immediate legal action,” the statement reads.
