Nollywood actress, Mary Njoku has offered to pay anyone with proof that she underpays the graduates working for her company.
This is coming after the screen star and husband, Jason Njoku, CEO of Iroko TV had received backlash for stating that N4.6M as a tuition fee is cheap.
The celebrity couple was called out by people who wondered how their staff would be able to pay such an amount of money for tuition when they are underpaid.
In reaction to this, Mary Njoku asked anyone with proof that staff in her company are underpaid.
Her post reads, “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.” she added.
Mary Njoku is an actress, Founder of ROK TV channels (DSTV and SKY), and Director of ROK Studios Nigeria.
