  1. Good that the sacked staff were compensated and hope its not the one they will join labour market again.

  2. Na today yash dey back? *raised eyebrow* am not thrilled at all. Bank jobs na abiku in my language, na come and go things oooo, it is not reliable at all. This phenomenon in banks na "bi o ti wa ni atetekose be ni o bee ni isinsin yin, bee ni o si maa ri titi lai lai, aiye ainipekun.... please don't say amen ooo. Anyway, i pity 'affected' persons shaa,it is not easy. This is another way to add to number of unemployed persons in this country. No wonder, most people for bank dey always hunt for jobs somewhere else even when they are working. oga ooooo

  3. The situation is becoming more pathetic.

  4. They shouldn't have sacked their worker na

  5. That's hectic for some families.

  6. They want to make people to commit suicide....
