Politics / Why Government Is Buying 20% Stake In Dangote Refinery - GMD by Layze(m): 3:59pm On Jun 29
The Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari, has revealed why the state oil giant is buying a stake in Dangote Refinery.

The NNPC boss in his explanation said that the decision was driven by the profit potential of the refinery business and the need to have a say in a business of this magnitude, which borders on energy security for Nigeria and Africa, with huge implications for fiscal security of the country.

This was made know by Kyari, while appearing on a Channels Television programme, Sunrise Daily, on Tuesday, June 29, 2021.

What the Group Managing Director of NNPC is saying
Kyari said that NNPC is not using government money to buy stakes in the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Refinery, which is expected to start production in 2022.


He said rather, they are borrowing money from banks on the back of viability, workability and cash flow of the business in addition to guaranteed dividends.

Kyari during the interview said, “Dangote refinery will come into production by 2022. And what that will do is to deliver over 50 million litres of gasoline into, to be specific, our markets. We are also working on our refineries, to ensure that we fix them. We have awarded the contract for Port Harcourt refinery rehabilitation. And ultimately we are going to close that of Warri and Kaduna very soon in July so that all of them will work contemporaneously.

The net effect is that you are going to have an environment where Nigeria becomes the hub of petroleum products and supplies. It’s going to change the dynamics of petroleum supply globally in the sense that the flow is coming from Europe today and it is going to be reversed to some other direction. We will be the supplier for West Africa legitimately and also many other parts of the world.

So the meaning of this is, there is an opportunity that has been thrown at us. And I’m not sure Mr Dangote wants to sell his equity in the refinery. I can confirm that it was at our instance that we started this engagement. He did not want to sell his shares in this refinery.


There is no resource-dependent country that will watch a business of this scale, which has bordered on energy security and has implications for fiscal security of the country, and you don’t have a say. And for us, as a strategy, we started this process long before Dangote started his refinery project. We take equity in very significant businesses that are anchored on the oil and gas operations: fertiliser, methanol plants, modular refineries and some other businesses that we are dealing with.

For the Dangote refinery, we are not taking government money to buy it, which is the mistake that people are making. We are borrowing on the back of the cash flow of this business. We know that this business is viable, it will work and it will return dividends.

It has a cash flow that is sustainable because refinery business, in the short term, will continue to be sustainable. That’s why banks have come forward to lend to us, so we can take equity in this.

THE ATS LEVEL:

The ATS level has three parts (exams): ATS 1, 2 and 3. The body in charge of this level is known as ATSWA (Accounting Technician Scheme West Africa). The exam is done across some West African countries including Ghana, Liberia and so on. Each part has four exams which make a total of twelve exams for the three parts.

After completing the exams in all three parts, you shall be inducted as an ATSWA member and be awarded an Associate Accounting Technician (AAT) certificate. This certificate alone boosts your standing among other junior and mid-level accountants and gives you recognition.

Also, without mincing words and with the exception of few courses, I can tell you for free that this certificate is equivalent to a 400L accounting student in a typical public university in Nigeria. The AAT certificate is recognized in countries like Canada and the UK. With your AAT certificate, you can easily practice as an accounting technician in Canada.

THE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL:

The second and final division is the professional level from where you can become a qualified and certified accountant. Just like the ATS level, this level also has three parts – foundation, skills and professional. This level is where you become a pro in the accounting field.

The foundation, as the name implies, is the entry stage into the professional level. It is the stage where all the basics of accounting as a profession are being taught. Every B.sc and HND holder in any other course aside accounting will start from this level. This level contain five exams to be completed before moving to the next stage – although, this will be reviewed soon according to reports from the association. For someone who has a B.sc or HND in accounting, he will be exempted from this stage, as it is believed that he shouldn’t have a problem with the basics. Such person will start from the next stage – skills.

  The second part/stage in the professional level is the skills stage. It is the pen-ultimate exam to be done before one can become a qualified accountant. This stage is the entry level for all B.sc and HND holders in accounting

Interestingly, for someone who is an AAT (Associate Accounting Technician), such person will also be granted exemption from writing the foundation stage – he will also start from the skills stage. This stage has four exams to be completed before moving to the final stage.

The last and ultimate part is the professional stage. This is alpha and omega of all exams in ICAN. It contains five exams which must be duly completed. After the completion of this stage, you shall be inducted as an Associate of Chartered Accountants (ACA) – and your dream of becoming a professional and chartered accountant is fulfilled!

I will be honest with you, it’s not a child’s play, neither is it a folktale journey. However, it is really straight forward and achievable. With focus and dedication, you can become a chartered accountant within the space of two and a half years – for someone who starts from the ATS level (1-3).
For a first degree holder in accounting, you can become a qualified accountant within a year! And for someone who starts from the foundation level, you can become a professional accountant with a year and half. 

Dear parents and guardians, your child can become a professional accountant even before graduating from higher institution – regardless of his/her course of study. 
My dear brothers and sisters, your dream of becoming a chartered accountant with all its reputation and recognition isn’t lost, it is still very much within your grasp. Make the move today!


Please note, this article is not completely exhaustive as there are packages for OND holders in their ICAN exams. Feel free to throw in your questions.

Career / How Can You Become A Professional Accountant? by Layze(m): 2:43pm On Jun 02
Yesterday, I posted an article about the accounting profession and what you need to know. Read here:
https://www.nairaland.com/6582321/accounting-profession-what-should-know

How, then, can you become a professional and chartered accountant? How can you become a recognized and practicing accountant in Nigeria?

It is very simple! All you have to do is to pass ICAN exams and boom, you're already a professional accountant!
Surprised? Well you are allowed to wink.

Let me also retierate, whether you have a any degree in Accounting (Bsc, OND, HND, etc) or you don't, you can become a professional accountant in less than 2 years cool. You just have to be certified by ICAN.

What is even ICAN?

ICAN – INSTITUTE OF CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS OF NIGERIA

ICAN is one of the leading, popular and efficient professional bodies in Nigeria. Established on September 4th 1965, it is a body which effectively represents the interest of its members, regulate its members’ conduct and enhance its members’ interests and goals

In Nigeria, ICAN is the leading professional body for accountants; the association has constantly churned out scores of great and visionary men and women within and outside the profession. Great people like Chief Akintola Williams (the first chartered accountant in Nigeria), Mr. Taiwo Oyedele, Mrs. Onome Joy Adewuyi and so on.

In order to qualify and practice as an accountant in Nigeria, you need to pass all stages of the ICAN exams; display a level of competence and attain a level of experience. Honestly, it is not a very easy feat but it is very straight forward and achievable. 

ICAN EXAMS

ICAN exams are divided into two broad stages: the accounting technician level (ATS level) and the professional level. ICAN exam was formerly only for the professional level, however the ATS level was later developed for three purposes:
- To cater for small and medium scale enterprises who might not be able to afford the fees and pay of a professional and qualified accountant. The aim is to provide them with accountants who are suitable and are capable to satisfy their needs.

- To widen the profession and make it easier for anybody at all to become a professional accountant. This level has made it possible for someone who has just a senior school leaving certificate (WAEC, NECO, GCE et.al) to become a chartered accountant with ease.

- To make the transition into the professional stages smooth and easier.

Business / Nigeria's Pension Asset Dips #51.3billion In February 2021 by Layze(m): 2:33pm On May 05
Nigeria’s total pension assets lost a total of N51.3 billion to stand at N12.25 trillion in the month of February 2021. This is according to the monthly pension report released by the Nigerian Pension Commission.

According to data compiled by Nairametrics Research, Nigeria’s pension assets fell to their lowest position in four months, characterized by the decline in bond prices, and profit-taking activities in the Nigerian equity market.

Highlights

- The total pension asset declined by 0.42% from N12.29 trillion recorded as of January 2021 to N12.25 trillion in February 2021.
- Federal Government bonds stood at N7.34 trillion, accounting for 59.6% of the total pension asset under management.
- Also, local money market securities, which stood at N1.62 trillion as of February 2021, accounted for 13.4% of the gross asset for the period under review.
- Mutual funds recorded a decline of 1.3% to stand at N158.96 billion from N162.1 billion recorded in the previous month.
- However, treasury bills increased by 5.5% from N670.34 billion recorded as of the last day of January 2021 to N676.91 billion at the end of February 2021.

Why the decline?
While responding to questions regarding the recent decline in pension fund assets, Oguche Agudah, the CEO of Pension Fund Operators Association of Nigeria (PenOp), stated that it was due to the decline in prices of fixed securities.

Education / How Can You Become A Professional? by Layze(m): 6:41pm On Apr 25
In my last article, I made us understand the concept of professionalism, its numerous advantages and why everyone should strive to become a professional.

(Kindly read up if you miss the article https://www.nairaland.com/6518025/why-should-professional

How, then, can you become a professional?

No matter the field or career you find yourself, whether formal or informal, you can as well become a pro in your own field. You can become a professional artisan, footballer, designer, engineer and so on in TWO major interdependent ways:

1. Through years of hard work and experience:

There is a general old adage which says “practice makes perfection”. This age-long axiom has always remained true. You can become a pro in your field through hard work and dedication, backed by conscious effort towards growth and development.

By spending a number of years in your job and paying close attention to your growth, you can improve your expertise and become so good in your field to be regarded as a professional. Experience can only be gathered by spending enough time in a particular assignment, learning, unlearning and relearning.

In our world today, however, and especially for formal careers and jobs, expertise gained through long years of work and experience only is greatly recognized but not USUALLY acknowledged and celebrated. I mean such expertise could take you places and give you recognition, but it could also undermine you if you rely SOLELY on it.

This is the harsh reality with formal jobs – accountants, engineers, surveyors, mid-wives etc. A friend of mine has an uncle who is a quantity surveyor. The man is really sound and good in his field and he has handled many high-profile projects for his company. He is someone who should be regarded as a pro.

However, when the MD of his company stepped down, he as the assistant should rightfully take over right? But no, it didn’t happen. To our surprise the company brought in another surveyor who is rather less experienced than him to become the MD and my friend’s uncle remains the assistant.

Why? Why would the company make such harsh decision? This is not right! What is even the difference between the new MD and my friend’s uncle? – Certification.

2. Through Professional Certification:

Certificates, as most people agree, is a mere paper which shows that – in most cases – you have sat down in a classroom, receive lectures, memorize what is mostly a theoretical aspect of a particular field and deliver those in an exam hall. In Nigeria today, there are lots of disagreements on the use of certificates as a basis of evaluation and assessment of a person’s ability.
There are so many valid points to this outcry – especially when considering the dilapidated state of education system in our country.

However, my dear, I am going to break the sad news to you: certificates are still as important as they have ever been. Expertise and experience is very invaluable tool one can have, they serve great use to their owners; however certificates serve as spring board through which the owner could achieve much greater success.

Expertise and experience are like a perfectly constructed mansion with several rooms, beautiful in-house painting and several gadgets, but in which the exterior part of the house wasn’t painted. Passer-by and the public only see the exterior and not the interior of the house.
They might never get to appreciate the beauty of the house because of its lack of painting – except those who are opportune to enter the mansion. We can all agree that the house needed just one thing to stand out and be fully appreciated – that is painting.

Certificates are the painting that attracts and open several doors of opportunities. In the corporate world, certificates, professional certificates precisely, serve as a launch pad and give their owners the platform to achieve great success in their career.
Professional certificate is what will give you the platform to showcase your expertise and experience. It is what will attract the world to your competence and knowledge. It is what will push you to that high place in your career where you can be fully recognized.


My dear students, engineers, accountants, economist, H.R personnel, builders, are you still in the belief that certificates are of no use? Discard these thoughts and quickly prepare for an insurmountable rise in your career by getting professionally certified.

Take the steps today, become a professional and thank me later.
Education / Why You Should Become A Professional. by Layze(m): 1:05am On Apr 22
Why You Should Become A Professional

The word “professional”, usually shortened as pro, is not an alien word in the world today. It, arguably, is one of the most common and most misused words in our everyday Life.
You often hear sentences like “that guy is very good, he’s a professional”, “that doctor is a pro, he’s really sound”.

A person who is regarded to be a professional is one who has acquired, accumulated and displayed a sound knowledge, experience and expertise in the discharge of a particular field of work. He is a person with whom a high level of trust and standard is placed upon.

A professional is not perfect, neither is he omniscient – he makes mistakes (though very seldom). However, he constantly applies due diligence and avoid negligence and this makes it possible for him to continuously churn out brilliant expertise in the performance of his work.
In our world today, we have professionals in various fields and careers – engineers, lawyers, artists, sportsmen, accountants, builders, designers, managers and so on.

Why should you strive to become a professional?


- Success: A professional engineer is more likely to be successful than a non-professional one. He will be comfortably entrusted with large contracts and large sum.

Being a professional makes you a problem solver, and it means you have mastered the art of problem-solving, which gives you a high chance of being successful because as long as there is a problem you will always be in demand.

Sincerely I've never seen anyone who claims to be a leader and who is so docile and indifferent. angry.

He rarely talk or comment on pressing issues. Not until they've spiralled out of control .

He has made it look as if it's normal for the president of a country to be so far away from issues in the country.

And even if he later decides to address an issue, that's after so much damages, they will announce it like 3 days before the day. Like what is special about his speech?

Health / Coro Na Scam? by Layze(m): 8:53am On Feb 02
‘CORO na Scam’? – A dangerous Nigerian narrative

By Nnadube Jonathan Ejiogu


Coro na scam” has become a convenient rhetoric on the lips of many Nigerians. It interprets that this deadly virus is not real in Nigeria. The reason for such unguided assumption must have originated from the fact that there is a subtle philosophy among Nigerians that the government is only taking advantage of the pandemic outbreak to embezzle money and continue in their corrupt practices.

Even among learned people, this philosophy seems to firmly hold court. Some have mocked the government saying that they can clairvoyantly confirm that Corona virus is not real in Nigeria else why has it not been killing people as witnessed abroad. Some others share the notion that it is a “big man” sickness as they support their claim with the fact that it has only been killing the rich.

In all of these, the coordinating reason for the misinformation seems to have gain grounds because most people do not trust the government’s good conscience and such has distorted the delicate balance upon which the reception for fact is placed. But Is Coro truly a scam in Nigeria?

Someone once said, “we know your dog is friendly and can’t bite, but chain it”. Overtime, we might have developed a rock-solid impression about COVID, making us to care less if we forget to go out without a mask; to you, that homemade aphorism becomes concretized: whether you believe or not, mask up.

On January 4, South Africa announced it has witnessed a new variant similar to the one discovered to have been wreaking huge damage in the UK. To confirm this, Dr. Benjamin Neuman, a virologist at Texas A & M University Texarkana, USA, has informed that the mutation of the virus is expected as viruses do mutate and that “as viruses mutate, their chance of survival increases”. He further adds that “mostly the changes are bad for each individual virus, but together, a population of weaker but more diverse viruses has a better chance of survival than the same sized population of identical viruses”.

The point to note is that, since it is scientifically confirmed that mutation is possible and in fact, expected, then South Africa might be correct in their discovery. Recently, it has been discovered that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been discovered in Nigeria. Although, both Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, Director General NCDC; John Nkengasong, head, African Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the African Center of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Disease, Ede, Osun State, Nigeria, have given similar reports on the variant, maintaining that the new variant found in Nigeria is not entirely the same as the one (P681H variant/ B.1.1.7 lineage) found in the UK and South Africa.

However, report has it that the variant is 70% more transmissible. This is corroborated by the fact that Nigeria has since witnessed a 52% increase higher than that of South Africa that is pegged at 40%. This increase is really very worrisome and disturbing, especially upon the knowledge that the majority seems not to care about this fact.

It was announced by the NCDC recently that 1430 new cases was recorded with death toll now in six figures.

Also, a friend called to apologise for not responding to my earlier call some days ago giving the reason that she was down with COVID. She said she did not know she had it, even though she had been a little bit ill, but because she was to travel to the US and needed to get her COVID test to confirm she is negative, she realized she is positive.

Although she is safe now, but the question is, who infected her with it? Who infected the person that infected that person? Who has she infected with it as well? Will these people who may not be travelling ever know that what is wrong with them is not just fever, stress or Malaria but that deadly COVID they thought resides abroad only?

In the same vein, how many people today are walking viruses? As we begin to answer these questions, we should share in the faith of the adage that says “we know your dog is friendly and can’t bite, but chain it”. Since the survival of one rests on another taking responsibility, then the convivial effort in observing all safety precautions is unavoidably important.

As a people, are we doing just enough to contain the virus? Are we actually taking responsibility to ensure our safety and that of others? With the rate of the spread of this new variant/linage and so many people that are yet to be tested, don’t we think that we are all potential carriers of the virus already?

The empirical explanation has not been given as to why, unlike other yonder places, Nigeria seems to be surviving from the catastrophe of deaths littering our streets as people go in and come out of COVID like every other familiar sicknesses. But does that go to suggest that one should continue in this unhealthy health precaution culture? Not long ago, Nigeria lost prominent academicians to this new variant and other prominent people including those from the entertainment industry have come up to admit that they contracted the virus. Are these public figures and even the unknown people making it all up?

One would have thought that by now, there would have been full mask-up compliance. That all offices MUST ensure that their staff mask up at all times and are subjected to periodic test, especially those that engage a lot of staff. One would have thought that our commercial motorists – drivers and conductors- would be wearing face shields and stop those who are not masking up from boarding their vehicles.

One would have thought that by now, the NURTW operatives on field would be shielding up as well and ensure that offending drivers in their union are delayed. One would have also thought that there will be officers on the road who will not only be arresting but cautioning those without masks on the road. There is a need for us to ensure these measures are put in place, if for anything, for the existence of anoth

SUNDAY - Previous Day

Griiiillll Griillllll…. “Hello Dotman, how far?” “Hello who is this?” “Dotman are you alright? It’s Obi; don’t you recognize my voice?” “Oh Obi I’m sorry, but this isn’t your number you’re using to call me” “yes, I just got a new line. Have you checked your mail this morning?” “No, what happened?”

That Sunday I was on my bed around 2pm watching movies on my old laptop when my friend Obi suddenly called me and started asking questions.
I wasn’t in the mood to talk and was hoping he end the call soon when he said “you haven’t checked your mail? Look at someone looking for job!” he exclaimed.

Before I could say anything he continued “check your mail now, that company I’m helping you to process is doing interview tomorrow and they must have sent you a mail. Get dressed tomorrow and leave early; I wish you the best. I will call you later” with this Obi ended the call. I sighed and returned to the movie I was watching.

My hunt for job began a year ago; immediately I graduated from school. I’ve always heard that the labour market is tough but I wasn’t expecting it to be this tough. I submitted applications to hundreds of firms, both private and public; I was called to several interviews and tests. But it all yielded nothing.
I even attended several free seminars and conventions in the hope of getting a job opportunity.

After eight months of hunting, all my good clothes and shoes have become worn out; I had almost nothing left with me. Then I was left with no choice but to go into a job I’ve always disliked: teaching. I searched and applied to different private schools around my area. I finally got a job in one school where I’m being paid twenty five thousand naira monthly.

I continued my job hunt even after getting this job – I still submitted so many applications online. However it’s been over six months now since I started teaching and it’s not looking likely that I will see a better job soon. So I’ve started giving up.
We are currently on break in the school I work so I spend most of my time indoor. Obi who had been gainfully employed three months after our graduation has been working tirelessly in helping me to find a job.

JOB HUNT

“Hello can I have your attention please? All applicants can come in now; its time already. Please to avoid embarrassment; if you don’t have the required documents don’t bother to come inside.”
I’ve literally been shivering ever since I arrived; however this latest announcement was the ultimate icing cold – it sent a cold shiver down my spine.

I stood up slowly and walked sluggishly towards the gate “eh take it easy can’t you – “ “Mr. man you just pushed – “ “sorry”. Everyone around me was in frenzy; there was no order at all; everyone is rushing towards the gate at the same time.
I was being pushed around over and over again but I didn’t bother to join the rush; I moved slowly towards the gate.

By the time I finally pushed through the gate, my heart sank: I saw no less than 40 people seated under a canopy at one edge of the compound; some people were even standing. At that instance, I felt a strong urge to turn back and go back to my house; I wanted to just leave. But I found myself walking towards the canopy.

Everyone was seated on a plastic chair. I took the last seat at the back (obviously nobody wanted to sit there) and looked at the sea of heads ahead of me; “no hope for you here Dotman” I thought to myself.

MONDAY

I got to the venue of the interview very late. The mail asked us to come by 8:30am but I got there by 9:15am. I actually woke up early but I wasted the whole time on choosing an outfit.
I tried on almost all the shirts and trousers in my wardrobe; they all have one fault or the other. Some are torn, others are worn out or have become faded; I was very confused and frustrated.

I finally settled on one oversized but clean blue shirt and a deep brown trouser. I wore my one and only shoe and took off immediately. I took a bike to the venue and stopped about a hundred steps away from the gate.

There were so many people lurking outside the gate; at first I doubted if I made a mistake but on a closer look at the people around, reality dawned on me: they all came for the interview just like me.

“Excuse me please, you also came for the interview right?” I asked one fair lady who just finished speaking with someone on phone and was walking towards the gate “no I just came here to mark attendance and while away my time” the lady hissed and walked away angrily. How rude! I thought to myself.

Obviously I picked the wrong person. I looked around and saw a petite beautiful lady standing against a wooden pole; she was speaking with a guy whose back was facing me. I walked towards them and asked politely “excuse me please; I believe you guys are also here for the interview; why are we waiting outside or is the interview over?”

It was the guy who replied my question “no the interview hasn’t started, we were told to stay outside until they call us in”.
Thank God, I thought to myself “I hope you have all your documents with you?” The lady spoke for the first time; “yes, I– wait let me check again” I quickly opened the bag I was holding which contains all the documents they asked us to bring.

My mouth suddenly opened wide in surprise “what happened? Did you forget something?” the guy asked. I looked at the two of them and I said slowly “I think I left my certificate at home” “haa!” they both exclaimed in unison. “And they stated it clearly that if you don’t have the requirements you shouldn’t come. I also heard that they are strict with – “ it was at this junction that a voice boomed from a microphone and interrupted the guy. “They are calling us inside; you better run”

The two of them brushed me aside like I didn’t exist and took off towards the gate like a sprinter in a 100m race.




THE INTERVIEW

I sat patiently on the last seat under the canopy we were all asked to stay. I was very worried and anxious but I just sat calmly on the chair. I was worried for two reasons: first I forgot my certificate at home and it’s one of the documents which we were asked to bring. It was clearly stated that failure to bring the required documents will certificate to automatic disqualification.

Second, I looked like a pauper compared to other applicants at the venue with my oversized shirt, faded trouser and worn out shoes. I wished I hadn’t bothered to enter the gate at all. It was the fear of remaining a teacher for another God- knows- when period that prompted me to come in and hope for the best.

Then a man appeared in front of us “everyone should get seated. My name is Mr. Lawani and I will be organizing you guys today with Mrs. Nadia who will be here shortly. Now everyone of you should look at the back of his/her chair you will see a number written at the back with a white board marker; can you all see that?”
A mild noise ensued as everyone began looking for his/her number. “Can we all see it?” “Yes!” we chorused. “Good. We are going to be calling you guys in with your number please ensure you respond promptly when you’re called to avoid disqualification”.

My number was 39 – that was the second to the last number –we were 40 in number. “Number one!” the man’s deep voice boomed in the microphone “sir!” came a lady’s voice. Then a dark plump lady walked briskly from the front row towards the man.

A woman (who introduced herself as Mrs. Nadia) came to join Mr. Lawani and together they started assessing the lady. They checked her documents to ensure she has the required documents and they also assessed her dressing. She was passed and was allowed to go into the office. The rest of us were as silent as a dead meat.

After about 15-20 minutes, the deep voice boomed again “number two” yes sir!”A lanky guy stepped forward. As he turned to face the man and woman who will assess him, I realized it was the guy who, together with a lady, had responded to me earlier outside the gate.
For the next one hour, names were called and applicants went in; we didn’t have any idea how the interview went because we haven’t seen anyone come out.

I was already bored and was feeling sleepy. My number is still very far behind so I started dozing. “Number twenty two!” silence. “Number twenty two!” silence. At this point I jolted awake.

Everyone was looking around and wondering who number 22 was. Then a deep drowsy male voice answered “sir! I’m here sir!” everyone looked at him with surprise; the guy has obviously dozed off. Then Mr. Lawani’s voice came “number 22 is disqualified; please security take him away”.
I became afraid and alert; you can’t afford to sleep here Dotman; I told myself.

There were murmurs as the guy started begging frantically “please sir, I’m sorry sir it was a mistake” the man was taken away by the security despite his pleadings.

“Number twenty three” “sir!” a lady responded and after she was assessed, she went in. About a minute later as the lady went in, a tall heavily built dark man suddenly appeared from the entrance of the interview building and walked to Mrs. Nadia. He spoke with her for a few minutes and walked back inside the building.
Mrs. Nadia turned to her partner (Mr. Lawani) and whispered something to him – obviously she was relaying the message she received from the man who came out moments ago.

Another minute passed, then the bombshell dropped.

“Number thirty nine!” silence. “Number thirty nine” “sir” I answered meekly. Then a sea of eyes turned back to look at me and at that moment I felt my legs crushing. I wished I could wither away like a feather in the wind; I wished the ground could open up and just swallow me. I was taken by surprise.

What happened? Why did they skip so many numbers? How could they jump from number 23 to number 39? These unanswered questions kept playing in my head as I picked up my bag and started walking slowly towards the front row.

My steps were unsteady and slow as I make my way to the organizers. I could hear some murmurs and mild laughter; everyone was looking at my oversized shirt, faded trousers and worn out shoes. I kept looking down as I made my way.

I finally looked up as I arrived in front of the organizers, I noticed that Mrs. Nadia was trying to keep herself from laughing but she couldn’t hide it; I could see the glint in her eyes. Suddenly the mild laughter and murmurs became very loud. I turned around and realized everyone was laughing and pointing at my back.

Oh Lord, I prayed silently, please let it not be what I’m thinking.

But it was.


In my haste to make it early to the venue earlier this morning, and after wasting so much time in selecting an outfit, I didn’t check thoroughly the trouser I finally picked. The trouser is one of my very old one which I had stopped wearing for some time now because it has two small holes at the buttocks area.
As I turned to check I realized it was the same trouser. I almost cried; the humiliation was TOO much.

Mrs. Nadia couldn’t hold herself any longer immediately she saw it too; she burst out in laughter. Mr. Lawani too was amused but he managed to keep himself in check. I thought it was over and I would be sent home in humiliation. I regretted coming for the interview in the first place.

However to my surprise, Mr. Lawani asked me to bring out my documents. I looked at him in disbelief; but he repeated himself “let me see your documents”. I quickly brought it out and after going through it he looked at me with contempt “you didn’t bring your certificate along; why?”

I started trembling; but before I could say a word Mrs. Nadia shocked me with her words “just let him go inside please; we don’t have time. He’s already been cleared”.

I thought I was dreaming as I walked through the door that led into the building. There was a long passage with doors on both sides. I paused at the first door and began contemplating where I am supposed to go. A lady suddenly appeared from a door at the far end of the passage and said “Are you Mr. Apata Dotun?” “Yes ma” I replied.

She then motioned for me to come inside. I walked towards the far end and stopped when I got to the front of the door; I took a deep breath; say a word of prayer and I went in.

Inside the office were four people – two middle aged man and woman, a young dark lady (the one who welcomed me inside) and another fair lady who sat facing the two middle aged.
I greeted everyone but only the dark lady answered. The older people didn’t even look up, neither did the fair lady. “So Miss. Marian, you will receive a message from us tonight or tomorrow morning” the man said. “Thank you so much sir.” The lady sitting in front of them bowed a little and stood up.

Immediately she turned I saw her face clearly – oh so it’s you! I thought to myself. She was the rude lady whom I first talked to earlier in the morning. Our eyes met for a fleeting moment before she stepped around me and left. “Mr. Apata Dotun right?” the woman motioned at me.

“Yes ma” “ok, you know what; just drop all your documents there, we are already overdue here” she pointed to a table at one corner of the room “we will send you a message tomorrow”. “Alright ma” I quickly did as I was asked and I left the room.

Outside the door, the passage was empty again. I heaved a deep breath and started working towards the door through which I came in. The door behind me opened and the lady came out again “Mr. Dotun you can’t pass through there; there is another exit here” she pointed at one of the doors on the passage.

I looked at the door she pointed and saw the word EXIT pasted on it. I opened the door and found myself in another small passage that led me back to the compound. I felt relieved as I stepped into the compound again. I glanced at the canopy where I sat earlier and noticed that the number of applicants has dwindled.

But where are the other applicants going? I wondered to myself as I made my way through the gate and flag down a cab.




TUESDAY

I woke up very late that Tuesday morning. I had a late dinner the previous night and that made me quite heavy. I checked the time; it was 9:30am. I walked lazily to the bathroom and washed my face. As I walked back into the room, I heard my phone beep twice.

I ignored it at first and was about to head outside when I suddenly remembered; I quickly picked up the phone and realized it was a text message. I was disappointed when I saw that it was one of those random messages from service providers.

However, I noticed that my phone continued blinking a blue light, and that indicates an unread message. I carefully checked my inbox and the third message read thus:

"Hello Mr. Apata Dotun, we are happy to inform you that your application was successful and you have been offered a job as a Secretary to the Managing Director. You are to come tomorrow for your employment letter and other necessities".

Mrs. Nadia
HRM.
