His words, “Tensions are high among employees because of the lack of regard for Nigerian businesses, Nigerian entrepreneurs and the Nigerian success story by senior management. One of my co-workers told me her husband asked her to resign because of the tone of superiority seen in the MD’s leaked email. He apparently seems to think that Lebanese people are better than Nigerians.

“Also some of our staff that are unhappy with the CEO, due to his disregard for low to middle level employees, especially in the Sales department. We believe all these will come to an end soon.”
