"Applied for a Consultancy Job. One of the Jobs that when got can take care of Expenses for the next 8 months. At the last process, I met with the Committee in Charge of the Job. What i was told next wasn't Funny. In Clear English, i was Told am the ideal candidate and very highly Qualified, But ....... i wont get the Job..... Reason: Am not from the state of Residence and the Board chairman Doesn't like People of my Tribe. A state i have lived in for over 14 years. Set up Businesses, Own Buildings and have always paid my tax" #therewasonceacountry

Were you thinking one Nigeria was real before?

I sincerely feel for you. Take heart and say to ur soul IT IS WELL

Modified: Funny enough when Nigerians go to civilised countries we are granted citizenship after a number of years but we can never try to grant that to other Nigerians who were even born in regions other than their native regions.
THIS IS NIGERIA!!!

Only foools are blinded by tribal sentiment. Tribalism is a success killer.
I will share this story of which I am a witness as it is happening currently. It could happen anywhere but I will mention the tribes involved.

This Igbo guy has been with this company for 7 years. He is intelligent. In fact all the new products that this company has introduced into the market in the last 5 years has been birthed by this guy, and he developed them too.
Then came this new MD who is Yoruba who came along with her own set of people and gradually started displacing the old successful hands. And the fortunes of the company started dwindling sharply.

They noticed this guy, and they knew he was very instrumental to the company's diverse products yet that Tribalism monster that lives in her and the people she brought didn't want to rest. They first of all moved his office out of the main Admin block. The guy saw the signals and immediately started hunting for job. No sooner did he start than he landed a job offer in a company 10 times bigger and better than the present one.

The guy just relaxed to watch how things will unfold. The straw that broke the camel's back was when they sent a mail last week and copied the whole staff that he will be reporting to a lady who just joined a company without informing him. I don't know if they wanted to disgrace him or what. Note that he is a manager.

24 hours later, he sent his resignation letter. As I type this, all the management team are still begging him to rescind his decision, offering him more money and improved work welfare.

But alas, the guy refused. He is leaving and that is final. Meanwhile all the about 10 new products touted to be fantastic which the company is about to introduce by next month is right in this guy's office. But Tribalism blinded this people not to see that.

Tribalism is very bad. But again, Buhari is a culprit.

The poster above me sha. They'd always hump on this kind of thread. They're always victims.


Sorry about this OP. However I must ask, are you sure you are not a TRIBALIST yourself and you're being paid just by your own coin? or what's the essence of this thread when obviously it's gonna get feasted on by fellow Tribalists.

Fact; Most people that easily spot tribalism in every ugly situations are by default, TRIBALISTS.


Your solution is not in any thread but consulting your God to cancel out every form of hatred and unfavorable decisions towards you which can deny you your blessings. The time you were opening this thread many destinies were being enriched and lives changed just by people from other tribe as theirs. When you carry that Grace, Favor speaks for you.
