Lagos Oriental Hotel, A Place Beyond Slavery by Never4getU: 7:38pm On Jan 05
The name of this hotel at Lekki axis precisely Maroko by sand field is called LAGOS ORIENTAL HOTEL, this hotel is an eye sore.

If there's other names for slavery it's there at oriental hotel, where staff sleep on bathroom floor without permission to do so, if u're caught is an option of sack or deduction or both penalties.

It's a place where u're not allowed to dress corporately or be seen eloquently inclined.

People are treated like second class citizens because the German, who happens to be the General Manager, is a racist who dislike Nigerians with passion. He finds and hold on u at any means possible offence upon which deduction earmarked from staff service charge or salary.

This exercise is necessary by all means because Peter must be robbed to pay Paul. Meaning, deductions of other staffs are used to scale up staff payment while hundreds of millions of naira weekly earmark are shared between the class struggles.

There's a man called Taiwo Ali, from Ijebu whose late father relationship with the Chinese owners dated early 1950s, he is the African Director of the wemco group of companies.

This man, is the offspring of his late father and the staff nightmare of the hotel. When the Chinese, considered reasonable payment as take home for staff, his father vehemently rejected and instead used cassava flakes as justification for surplus in the salary scheme an action which had ever since placed staff under an eternal penury.

Salary is range between 16k, 18k and 25k while older staff with long service receive 28k monthly. Service charge is the lowest in the entire axis but the highest sale statistics in the Lekki axis.

The GM has a dog who sleeps a full room apartment with all necessary applicable to guest in the hotel. This dog eats full chicken and everything as demanded while staff who are mostly Nigerians or other Africans eat foods meant for second class citizens because the GM at one time remarked tha his dog couldn't eat the particular food but unfortunately this is the food we eat.

My fellow Nigerians, we're nothing less than a slave in this country by our own people in collaboration with their white counterparts

You can get sack for a minor offense, it doesn't matter how long u have been in service for the hotel. Many of colleagues, I met whom I witnessed been sack some have been in service for more than 10yrs but were sent packing without any renumeration for service.

We hope, someday, someone will look into the slavery our leaders have sold us into in this country.

This is my eyewitness account of oriental hotel located at no 3, Victoria island, Lekki, Lagos.

Since the said work is not by force, I see no reason why you are here complaining. Leave their job, look elsewhere for a better offer. This is where our over smartness has led us as a country. When everyone is trying to be smarter than the rest.

Other Nigerians like you and I, were lucky to be in a good company where they are respected, enjoy good pay and good benefits, but what did their employers get in return? They ruined the company by stealing the company's money and other bad acts that crumbled many businesses.

So enjoy your 30K per month job.

I find it very hard to believe this story, the last time I lodged in Oriental was in 2021, the lowest available room was 18k per night. And their staff were always on cooperate wears looking as modest as possible.

Anyone working on the island for anything less than 60k per month, even a cleaner, does not have any self esteem. You are your own problem. Even if you're treated well.

Not to even talk of when you badly treated.

Oriental hotel i have worked there before, indeed staffs are treated like slaves and anytime the manager is around na serious tension and pressure untop peanut salary as a security guard, that place is very terrible and not a good place to work in at all. Lots of eye service intimidation and all shouting and cursing
They prepare the yeye food they gave us separately one little plate of food once daily

You may not see the stupidity and selfishness in your post but I'll open your eyes to it.

You don't have to be the first victim of unfair system before you raise awareness against it and expose such ills.

Just because you are fortunate enough to get a job better job than the op doesn't mean you won't be a victim of a bad system in the near future.

In the hospitality industry, staff salaries are subjected to deductions which are "criminal " and has no legal backing.

Rather than all this self pity you seek, why not find an effective means to fight for your rights?

You'll need a lawyer. At the end of the day, it is best the German is fired. However, we haven't heard his side. Germans are well known for taking very good care of their staff. This comes as a surprise.

Nevertheless, better seek the services of a lawyer. If you need help, let me know.
