BBNaija 2018 Sponsor, Payporte opens up on alleged poor treatment of workers
BBNaija 2018 Day 77: The official sponsors of this year Big Brother Naija show, Payporte, has reacted to report that staff of its company were being owed salaries and treated poorly.
According to some aggrieved staff on social media, Payporte treats them poorly, owes them months of salaries yet spends millions on sponsoring competitions such as Big Brother Naija, and signing on brand ambassadors.
However, Abioye Olubodun, an aide to the CEO of Payporte, Eyo Bassey has denied the report.
Olubodun told Punch that workers were not being owed, adding that those complaining left the company without following proper resignation processes.
“It is a lie, they are not being owed. The people that did not get their money are those that left the company without properly resigning their appointments and those that still have company properties such as cars and expensive cameras in their possessions.
“If you want to leave a company, there is a process to follow and that is the way it is everywhere. Your boss has to clear you, otherwise, it would be regarded that you went AWOL.
“It is unfortunate that the former staff had to go to this length. They just need to do the right thing and everything would be resolved. They don’t want to do the right thing but they want to get paid.
“The company doesn’t have issues with them; they have just been told to bring the items in their possessions and they would get paid their entitlements. It is not true that they were being owed.”
Speaking on reports that Payporte treats its staff poorly despite millions gotten from Big Brother Naija, Olubodun added:
“That is not true. I am a staff of the company and I can tell you that I am well treated. Meanwhile, the MD is aware of the allegations and he is planning to call a press conference at the end of the month.” Dailypost
