    Who’s the chick with her boobs outside on the high table, that is totally inappropriate for a work event, later we complain we’re not being taken seriously.
    I guess that’s why her name is not there, she doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things
    I’m not hating biko, just saying, so no “haters have come” comment

    Chams PLC, These jerks don’t pay their workers. Currently owing some people 1 years worth of wages. This is not “dem say dem say”. Nigerians seriously need a worker’s bill of rights. How do you withhold wages from someone for a year. How do you think they are feeding or taking care of their family?

      Are they owing you or any one you know? Well, I worked there too before I moved to the UK early last year. Yes they owed salary sometime back, very tough business days I must say oo. But they paid me all my money. Some other companies forget you once you are out their door.

      CHams had some serious financial issues and yes workers didn’t get paid for up to months at a time. But they were all compensated eventually. The difficulty was never denied and all the staff were well aware. Some left due to lack and payment and even after they left they were compensated for the time they spent at the company. If you worked there and you feel you haven’t been adequately compensated for your time then you need to contact them and inform. The situation will be quickly rectified.

    @asgrl You said jerks? That is unkind and uncouth. Mind you, Chams is not owing “some people 1 years worth of wages”. What you have just posted is a BIG FAT LIE. Remember this is a PLC with their books open for all to see through quarterly reports to the Nigerian Stock Exchange. Yes, the company went through a rough patch, in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis. It declared loss in 2010 and 2011, explaining delay in salary payments but has returned to profitability. We should be careful about saying untrue and nasty things that are unfounded because of the negative impact on others that we may not be aware of. I salute the resilience of Chams Plc and other Nigerian companies that are staying afloat doing business in a harsh operating environment with high cost of funds, policy inconsistency, dearth of infrastructure etc.

    its about time the banks in Nigeria implemented this instant card thing. My last experience was not so good at alllllllll. It took months to collect the card and another very looooooooooooooooooooonnnnnggggg time to collect the Pin.
    On Chams, I am happy to see Chams is back on their feet oo. They seem to be landing good deals. Congrats to them sha.

    By the way its my first time commenting on any post. And did I forget to say I loooooooooooove your site. I am a big fan.

      Well let’s hope this solution will improve debit and credit cards usage which is presently low in Nigeria. Cards are the new cashcow for banks in the developed markets but even at that they have to contend with the emergence of contactless payments sha! I hope this solution is scalable and upgrade to support issuance of contactless cards.
