Air Nigeria Shut Down! Suspends Operations for A Year

I would like to pretend that I am shocked at this news, but I have never been a good liar, so I will be honest and say, yeah I saw this coming. 
After working with Virgin Nigeria for less than two years, I could not imagine such a great company with the Virgin brand been handed over to You Know Who. Well, glad I quit, one of my smartest career moves till date.

According to Jimoh Ibrahim,
“corporations are like individuals who naturally will get sick and the usual thing to do is to admit them to hospitals, either for corporate surgery or for treatment, as the case may be.”

This was his answer for firing all but 50 staff members of the Airline for what he termed disloyalty. 
Big laugh, this was an Airline that was doing well before he came into the picture. I guess it is always easier to blame others for our failures.

To my former colleagues who just lost their jobs, It can only get better.
