Unfortunately, too many Nigerians can relate to this story.
Twitter user @Deji_Blissfield had shared a tweet criticising bosses who do not pay salaries on time but somehow manage to live wealthy lifestyles. He wrote:
“You haven’t paid your workers’ salaries for 6 months!!! You send the same workers to the bank to deposit your kids’ school fees in millions. You fly your family out on vacation to Dubai. But you’re quick to call our leaders wicked, SHUT UP YOU F,OOL!!!! Thunder go fire you!!!”
Sharing his experience, another Twitter user, @norquer, wrote about how workers from his old place of employment had sold their boss’ generator while he was on a trip out of the country to pay salaries he owed.
“My former boss was owing his staffs 4months salary, he travelled to the UK then to Dubai. His workers sold his Mikano generator and paid themselves before he came back from his trip.”
It’s so sad, yet so funny.
