Further Expoitation Of The Nigerian Job Sector by Anonymous1900: 8:43am On Aug 28, 2017
Hello Nigerians/Nairalanders

I have been away in silent mode for a while but something caught my attention deeply enough to draw me back from the group of silent observers to share with you again.

I wont bore you with too much plesantries and go straight into thr crux of the matter.

Sometimes last week i got a call in the office from a "indian" lady who told me they were conducting a market survey for ******* Bank and would like to know if i could spare 5 minutes for the anonymous survey. i was unfortunately very busy at the time so i asked her to call back next week (ie this week) thinking she wold simply move on to other callers and i forgot about the whole issue.

To my suprise i got a call before 8am today and the person repeated the same lines about the survey and again it was an "indian" lady though i cant be sure if its the same person or not.

After the call ended, it got me thinking as to what just happened and i was so pained when it dawned on me few minutes later i had to share the following observations with possible like minds to know if am over thinking it or things are not as bad as they appeared to me.

My observations:
1. An indian called me with a nigerian number (both times) to conduct a market survey in nigeria for a nigeria bank.
2. There was the brief pause of few seconds between my response and her response to tell me it was an international call routed through a nigerian number. I lived abroad long enough to know most of the call center and market survey jobs were been outsourced to India and we often joked about it at work back then about the accent and difficulty in understanding but am suprised nigeria has now degenerated to the point where our peopole are no longer even good for contract staff but now they are taking the jobs completely overseas
3. Has our governemnt completely let us down up to the point where minor jobs which high school leaers or even university students could undertake for stipends been farmed out offshore to countries like india who have the labour ( i read sometime ago about certain companies taking nigerian jobs offshore and remotely operating from overseas with little or skeletal staff left here in nigeria)
4. As a nigerian we understand different types of english however bad or weird it sounds so i could make out what she was trying to say however she could not understand me properly and am not suprised since the indian expartriates in my company also have a hard time understanding phone conversations and often need interpretation .

Finally after the call, i came to the conclusion that we could simply make a statement in support of our brothers/sisters who might need such a job to support or boost themselves preventing this rape of our economy since our goverment wont help us by saying politely "Am sorry I cant understand your english, could you please ask a Nigerian to call Back! " or whatever you think might work but please be polite. Am sure if we repeat this enough times, the company that hired them might rethink the outsourcing of this job to foreigners when there are millions of unemployed persons here at home. And no matter how long the company tries to cover up this fact eventually it will get out. We are only as strong as our collective actions

Now i know this might rob some people wrong (along the racist lines/bigotry etc) but at what point do we simply say enough is enough and start helping ourselves. A foreign colleague told me he does not buy stuff from china cos it damages his home economy and we were talking about common umbrellas . It was a conscious decision he made even though he his not at home, he still thinks to protect his country and economy. why cant we do the same!

Lets be patriotic, lets support our own, lets be Nigerians in whatever way we can!
God bless you all
