A Nigerian lady, identified as Olanike Jimoh, has been forcefully relieved of her work after she celebrated the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a political ‘godfather’ famed for his strategic deftness, won a tight race to succeed Muhammadu Buhari as the next president of Nigeria.
Most Nigerians are quite unpleased with the outcome of the presidential election as Tinubu won ahead of much loved presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
However, the Nigerian lady, who is a supporter of Tinubu took to her Twitter page to celebrate the victory. This gesture cost her job as the company, trade pot Investment limited sacked her.
Trade pot is one of the largest drink seller in Nigeria and is owned by Onyekachi Izukanne, Michael Ukpong, and Ruke Awaritefe.
Although the company claimed that the young lady was sacked based on her performance, it was proved that Olanike was among the best staff.
The story which was shared on Twitter by a user reads, “Trade pot investment Ltd. One of the leading drinks sellers in Nigeria Sacked one of us (Progressive) because she celebrated Asiwaju’s win. All because a blogger fed on it…The owner a staunch Peter obi supporter decided to take it up and sacked the girl.” He lied that she sacked her based on no performance. But here is the girl in the second position of the most performing staff.👇 Her name is number 2 on the list.”
