Company Where 57 Workers Tested Positive for COVID-19 Finally Speaks Out in Ibadan, Oyo State



 One of the leading customer expe­rience provider, iSON Xpe­riences, with presence in 15 countries across Africa, and employing over 10,000 people, has reacted to the reports of about 57 of its employees testing positive for COVID-19 in one of its centres in Ibadan, Oyo State.

In a statement made available to journalists on Tuesday according to  daily independent the management of the firm stated that those employees with suspected risks had undergone the necessary test and placed in isolation under the supervi­sion of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).


It would be recalled that Oyo State governor, En­gineer Seyi Makinde, an­nounced that a company in Ibadan had recorded 57 confirmed cases and that the identity of the compa­ny would be unveiled on Tuesday.

But before the governor Seyi Makinde  could announce the name of the company, the company itself disclosed its identity  through a statement made available. 

Part of the statement reads: “We operate contact centres and customer care processes from two centres in Ibadan and one in Ilorin for leading telecom service providers in Nigeria.

“iSON has implemented strict COVID-19 pandemic preventive measures, in­cluding social distancing norms, COVID-19 awareness campaigns for employees, mandatory use of sanitis­er and masks, temperature checks, general health check at the in-house clinic based on WHO guidelines.

“We have ensured con­tact centre services are available on a 24/7 basis with additional work from home customer service ad­visors activated and main­tained ‘business as usual’ for us as well as for our customers.

“Important points with regards to our Nigeria op­erations – we have some of our employees who were detected positive for COVID-19 at one of our cen­tres in Ibadan.

“Employees with sus­pected risks have under­gone the necessary test and placed in isolation un­der the supervision of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

“Together with the au­thorities, we will ensure the full return of our em­ployees to good health for their eventual resumption back at work.

“As of now, our office premise is temporarily closed for thorough disin­fection.

“We are focused on pro­viding services in a safe and healthy environment, and taking the necessary proac­tive measures to minimise the spread of COVID-19 vi­rus.”
