I make more in a month than my mum made a year when she worked in the NHS. But if she calls I drop everything and answer- Iroko TV boss writes after Twitter user said becoming self reliant takes control from Nigerian parents

Iroko TV boss, Jason Njoku, is against the ideology that being self-reliant should make Nigerians not submissive to their parents.

 

Njoku shared this thought after seeing a Tweet from a Nigerian that said one of the ways to speak up for oneself against Nigerian parents is having their own money and being self-reliant. The Twitter user had written

”No matter the advice anyone wants to give on handling/speaking up for yourself against (Nigerian) parents nothing beats having your own money & being self reliant. Its no joke when they say money & independence stops nonsense. It takes away a lot of control people can have on you 

There’s also a sense of self respect & “I don’t have to take this shit” attitude that grows in you as you make your own money & handle your life, you know that, they know that so now there’s more room for open convos, respect, you paying no mind etc. The hold is loosened or gone”

Reacting to the tweet, Njoku pointed out that he makes more money in a month than what his mum made in a year while she was still working. He said this however has not stopped him from showing her respect, if not for anything because she is his mum. Speaking as a parent himself, Njoku said that If one’s parents tried for them, all they need to do is drop their ego and try for them. He stressed that they fail to be there for their parents, he guarantees that their kids will treat them in the same way.

Atlanta Subway customer shoots dead female worker for putting too much mayonnaise on his sandwich

A Subway sandwich customer allegedly shot dead one female worker and injured another after too much mayonnaise was put on his sandwich.

 

On Sunday night, June 26,  at around 6:30pm, a customer ordering a sandwich at a Subway connected to a gas station located in the city’s downtown area erupted into a dispute with one of the store’s employees and opened fire. One employee was fatally wounded and another was sent to a nearby hospital.

 

The owner of the Subway told Fox 5 Atlanta that the customer became angry and decided to shoot his two employees over the amount of mayonnaise on their fast-food meal.

 

“Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise on his sandwich,” owner Willie Glenn said in an interview with the news station.

 

The employee who died during the shootout, a woman, has not been identified by police, but the store’s owner reported during an interview with Fox News 5 that the son of one of the employees was present at the time that staff was attacked by the armed customer.

 

“She had a young son that had to witness all of this,” said Mr Glenn.

 

The store’s on-duty manager reportedly returned fire at the suspect but missed, according to the store’s owner.

 

“Everybody wants to carry a gun. Everybody wants to scare somebody wit a gun. It’s scary out here,” Mr Glenn said.

 

Police are still investigating the shooting, reviewing surveillance video, and interviewing witnesses while they actively search for the suspect.
