I have just had a personal experience which I want to share here, now.
I'm an IT proffesional. I used to work in the operations division of the Cross River State Watre Board Limited, employed by the private-partner operator of that agency called Ortech Nigeria limited as the Information Systems Administrator. Way back in 2006, I realized that the pay I was getting was 200% lower than what was incidental to my office as contained in the contract papers between my organization (Ortech) and the Cross River State government. I accosted my employers and requested for a commensurate review. My investigations also showed that so many other shaddy deals were going on within the organization.
Ortech is a 'so-called' foreign company but with very little physical presence in any location, except a one-room office space in VI, Lagos. My curiosity lead to a lot more personal investigations which yielded tremendous surprises. The organization got wind of my efforts to find things out and decided to dispense with my services. I left, determined to fight on. The matter was taken up by my lawyers. Several negotiations were held in Calabar and the company offered to pay some 'chiken' change to me, to enable me get off their back. I refused. The dialogue ended in a deadlock, after some persons attempted to offer gratification to my attorneys. We then proceeded to report the matter to the EFCC in September, 2007. Surprisingly, the petition, the evidence and all the matters connected therewith vanished from the EFCC. All efforts to locate this has proved abortive. My investigations within the EFCC system revealed much to my surprise that some of the operatives in that organization are richer than oil-industry workers. They have fleet of cars and live life in the fast lane. I have run out of options. I have proceeded to report the matter to the World Bank (the financiers of the Water Board Operations) but felt, I may get better suggestions from NLders. What do u guys think?
