Nigerian actress, Mary Njoku has offered to pay a huge sum of money to anyone who has a solid proof that she underpays the graduated working for her company.
Recall that the actress and her husband Jason Njoku of Iroko TV were tongue lashed after he said N4.6M as tuition fee is cheap.
According to those who called them out, they wondered how their staff would be able to pay such an amount of money for tuition when they are underpaid.
While reacting to the backlash, the movie star asked anyone with proof that staff in her company are underpaid adding that she values everyone that works in her company.
“I want to apologize for speaking about meritocracy. For speaking up for smart people who work hard but underpaid cos they couldn’t afford to further their education. I apologize. I run ROK. And we value our employees irrespective of their educational qualification,”
“So come forward with proof if you know any current ROK staff who earns 30k 70k or even 90k. Graduate or illiterate. And get 1m naira. Come forward PUBLICLY Pls.”
