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.

He can. Some times guests will do hankypanky with the staff if their company pays for their food and drinks during their stay. The customer will talk with the accts dept or whi h ever departments are involved to charge the food and accommodation while the customer will (a) not stay at the hotel at all or (b) stay but not eat
Now, the staff of the hotel will send the bill to the customers sponsor who will clear the bill as agreed. When they pay, the hot staff will withdraw and call the customer and they split the cash as agreed. So if you have say 5 clients doing that per day and you get only #2k from each of them you can giess howmuch that would be. Other times, it's those short time ru s people that just use the room for 1hr and leave but the receptionist will tell them they have to pay full amount that they don't accept half day or per hr payment. Now, this customer will pay in full, go do his short time business and leave within one or two hrs. When he leaves, the staff on duty will just sneaking to rearrange the room and act as if no one has booked it since. Know cos I used to work in hotels.
you're also right. Front office does most of the room arrangements stuff. Corruption has so much eaten deep everywhere. If the House keeping manager is a good person, they cant easily manipulate him cos after cleaning, he has to mark the room on the system as cleaned and ready. So I believe they sort him also

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).
Go and look for spiritual backup preferably one with gift of revelation. You need to be serious in prayer and remove fear.
Re: Juju Scare: Should I Quit My Job? by lucky4west: 12:23pm On Jul 30
you need to genuinely repent and give ur life to Christ that is the only time u can have full protection, but then you must stop the runs...real children of God dont do runs of any kind that is if heaven is ur target after here....then if u cant do this sincerely resign and run for ur life...it could get worse...as a christian i cant suggest otherwise cheers

Yeah, every department has their runs. Marketing will agree to fix higher price with some clients and then when they get paid they get their cut.

Nonsense! This is the mentality that has been perpetuating evil in Nigeria despite the numerous churches and mosques in every street.
I think when it comes to religion, Nigerians have completely lost it.
Who is the "he" that's in a criminal who steals about #200,000 from his employer every month
How about linking his frequent troubles to the evil he has been committing stealing from his employer, who did well to employ him even without a certificate??
Or is stealing now legitimized in Nigeria?
