“Na fired na not be deport , it just warning from village people that Dem still dey with am.”

@AgbaakinEbere commented:
“If so, na unmitigated bad xter cause am. Pure lack of etiquette and not minding one’s biz with a sprinkle of mouth diarrhea.”

@ENIBOY noted:
“This sounds unbelievable. Even in Nigeria, employees are not that brave to question their CEOs. And there are many female CEOs in Nigeria. Did this guy in question go to her office to ask? Or she came to his desk? Methinks there’s more to it”

@duzolayalli said:

“The audacity of Nigerian men. They never learn to drop their rubbish at MMA.”

@samlofty1986 observed:
“Is the CEO from Nigeria? Because na normal question the guy asked.”
