Nigerian billionaire businessman, Tony Elumelu has been heavily criticized by a social media user over his treatment of his househelp.
The billionaire had shared a video of the moment he and his family celebrated Super Eagles player, Moses Simon during the Nigeria Vs Angola match.
In the clip he posted online, his wife and kids were spotted wearing matching football jerseys and sitting in the living room, while his househelp was seen standing beside his wife leaning on the wall.
The Twitter user slammed the businessman got leaving out his househelp from the match video as she noted how she was in a similar position. The lady identified as Vickey DSniper said though she isn’t where she wants to be, she is trying to get there.
Sending a message to employers, she admonished them to try to carry their house workers along with their daily activities especially when they’re less busy. Giving reasons, she stated that house workers are part of one’s family whether one believes it or not.
In a note to the billionaire, she noted how his family all wore Nigerian jerseys to celebrate the Super Eagles but left out the househelp, which she stated was wrong. She questioned why he would make her feel different and left out.
When someone tried tackling her, she reminded him that the househelp is the one who cooks the entire family meal and does all the daily house chores. According to her, such a person should be treated right.
“I was once in the position of this girl behind…
I’m not exactly where I want to be currently, but I’m trying
Dear Bosses, pls try to carry your house workers along with your daily activities especially when they’re less busy. Because whether you like it or not, they’re now part of your family. Dear @TonyOElumelu, Everyone wore the Nigerian jersey to celebrate the Super Eagles but your house help didn’t, making her feel different and left out. Why pls?
Oh well, for someone COOKING FOR YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY TO EAT DAILY,
Someone living in the same house with you daily and doing all your jobs, you have to treat him/her as family or at least “NICEST. It’s common sense. Forget about the payment, how much do they even pay house helps?”.
