|Juju Scare: Should I Quit My Job? by Bigyusluv: 9:16am On Jul 29|
Hello good morning.
Late April during lockdown, my friend sent me a post, which was advertised by her mom customer in need of an accountant urgently, the job was for graduate and I'm an undergraduate, final year thou I should have graduated since 2018 but left school in my first semester 400l due to mental health issues I was facing which no one know( I can't read and comprehend as I used to anymore) got bored of reading and preparing for exams, set eyes on making money. Just too broke at that time.
I applied for the job with fate, and I was called, went for interview thrice before I was given the job. due to my experience of working as an assistant accountant in one big hotel and working as branch manager in another hotel, and not staying far I was given the job. The pay range was 35k based on my qualifications thou.
I started work first week of May, not too stressful but I'm to resume by 6am and close 6pm, daily allowance 2k and my salary ... I do make 50-60k weekly aside my daily allowance and salary.
Reason I'm thinking about quitting is, early June, on my way to work on bike, I had an accident with Keke, which the Keke man was clearly at fault for swerving without checking his side mirror, but then again, it was just the two of us (bike man and Keke man) on the road, same lane, nothing coming back or front of us, yet the accident.
I had a bruise on my hand and a kinda deep wound an inch from my ankle bone. (which haven't gone yet, used original honey to bring out the surface, thou I no longer feel pains, recently it has dried up).
During that accident period nor of my colleagues/bosses came to visit me as I was home for a week. But my colleagues kept sending my own share from the runs money.
Last Thursday on my way to work, very close to my work place, walking on the street that lead to my office and one man I don't know, was inside his shop/house, saying to me, oboy this your leg never go, na wa oh, them wan just spoil ur leg for you, that your place wey u dey work many don run commot there cause of the juju things wey them dey use follow their workers, better dey pray every day and when u enter office guy. I said thank you sire, while getting to the office tears dropped from my eyes as I prayed.
Next day being Friday on my way home, the bike I took we both fell down, falling to where my wound is, I had to be smart and quickly dodge the bike from landing on that leg... I paid the bike man and trekked to the bustop to get Keke.
This job has really changed me from that sad dude to happy dude, due to financial capability right now... I'm now free of debt and brokenness.
Please advise me, cause I'm not really a spiritual person but all these are making me prayerful (never believed in juju and attack before).

The way people reason in this country can be very backwards. Because one "traditionalist" somewhere is attributing your transport mishaps to one voodoo in your place of work, you then want to quit??

How can you call yourself a Christian and still partake in sharing of ill gotten funds. If the fund is legit, serve God with all your heart and do your job diligently.
Believe greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

you shouldn't have quit school at 400 level na..not good bro. try and go back to that school and hustle your certificate with money. Don't quite that job, just be more careful and follow up with prayers. Save a lot of money because you will eventually leave there soon, but before then you should have gotten your certificate. Save like 1.5m and get yourself a good government job cos govt jobs is now for sale. Remember you will need your bsc cert for the govt job so make sure you hustle that cert as soon as u can. Abeg Bigyusluv I fit get small help from you. Please I need 3k to add with the little and have and setup my small site online abeg

Hey man, keep that job. You were just at the right place at the wrong time. Accident can happen to anybody at anytime. That's why it's called accident (unplanned event). There are some people that have accident almost everyday.
You can only quit your job if you know you can survive without it which I doubt in the state of the world right now
And for your colleagues, they don't owe you any sympathy. If the come to visit you or not, you ain't entitled to any. Try to be a professional and expect nothing from nobody. Don't add emotions to your work. They definitely don't mix together well
I wish you quick recovery.

Nothing do you bro keep Going there, trust me Nothing do you at all! Don't mind that Fool!
I just wanna know tho cos it's Surprising to me,
How is your 2k daily = 60k monthly, more than your 35k Monthly Salary?
Plus 50k*4=200k monthly. So about 300 Thousand Naira every month, doing a Cool Job like a Hotel Worker? Haaa!
Where is the Hotel, like which area of Lagos and Is there any Space available?
Like I Said earlier nothing do You, don't mind that man.

You are a thief.... This is why most multinationals do not hire Nigerians....
You have your salary + 2k daily but you still chose to steal from the owner of the store.......
I pray wherever you are, what ever you lay your hands on, whatever you are doing in the store should be done to you x10.
Accident kill you.. Praying after stealing... Nigerians!!!!

THE STORY OF A NIGERIAN MANUFACTURER
I run a manufacturing business and a trading business.
The biggest challenge in my manufacturing business is not power, or infrastructure, the biggest challenge is getting honest staff. Everyone we hire is appears to be on a mission to steal as much as possible. Inflated invoices, recording less than the actual number of units produced. The worst part of it all is that all the fraud we've uncovered is not done by a single person, it's usually many staff who collude with each other, from production, to sales, to finance, even top management. There was a year I overhauled management 3 times in a year. But I've found a solution sha, I now use Indian management. So competent, so honest and so straightforward. I thought they were expensive at first with all the visa fees, accommodation, house staff, but now that losses due to staff theft have been reduced to a minimum, and efficiency increased, the Indian management has turned out to be cheaper than the previous Nigerian management. Now, all sensitive positions involving money go to Indians. Nigerians are only allowed in non-sensitive positions. I used to criticize companies like Dangote Group that hire so many Indians when there are many unemployed Nigerians, but now, I understand their decision.
My biggest challenge in the trading business is the same, getting honest staff. The form of trading occurs in the open market, and involves staff having access to huge sums of money running into a few millions. I know how much I pay to security companies to provide escorts for the staff, not to prevent robbery, but to ensure that the staff go straight to the bank to deposit the money after the day's sales and not disappear with my money. This money spent on security companies is even enough to be declared as profit. We have to spend on CCTV, biometric scanners and other things that wouldn't not be needed if staff weren't looking for the slightest opportunity to steal.
It got so bad at a point that my main criteria for employing staff was no longer competency but honesty. At least, competency and skills can be learnt, but once you're dishonest, you're dishonest.
We always complain of the economy and how they are no jobs. I know people abroad who would have loved to set up job creating businesses in Nigeria but they can't because they can't get any trustworthy person to run it.
I know people in Nigeria with so much money, they want to start factories and other job-creating businesses but they can't because they are occupied elsewhere and can't get any trustworthy person to run the business. So instead of investing in the real sector and creating jobs, they'll just buy treasury bills, while the thieves are shouting no jobs.
Many big businesses would have been born in Nigeria if we could engage in partnerships, but we cant because you can't trust anyone. This is one advantage the Indians and Lebanese have over us in Nigeria. They can pull resources together and do mega-business, unlike Nigerians that because only one person must do everything since we can't partner, end up with small, tiny businesses.
Start a poultry and they will be stealing your eggs. Some will even go
ahead to be killing the chickens so that they'll be allowed to take them home.
Start an entertainment/viewing/game center and they'll be pocketing
your money. On the days you're around at the business, the money
realized will be x10 of the money realized when you're not around.
Because they're eating your money.
Lease out a vehicle to a driver to use and watch as he'll finish you.
Start a restaurant, the same thing will happen. More than half of the
total food ingredients will end up in their personal kitchens.
Even ordinary provisions shop, they will find a way to steal.
You'll see them with that their evil, wicked saying "na where person dey work, na there e dey chop, na e make dem dey callam workchop/workshop"...... Just imagine, justifying theft at work.
And you'll see these people point their crooked fingers at politicians when they're not any different. I usually say the reason most Nigerians haven't stolen billions of government money, is simply lack of opportunity.
Nigerians are the problem of Nigeria.

Bigyusluv:I'm not condemning anyone . As a Christian one should stay away from such act if the cash is not genuine. If your heart is pure that's between you and your maker.

"Hope your people won't get to see this"
Meaning for normal people:
"Hope your enemies don't come up with another plan to hurt you now that your story is on front page."
Meaning for Lalasticlala:
"I only move snake threads to Front page because village people that turned into the snake have died."
