Access Bank Sacks 200 Staff, Lavish N200m On Mariah Carey
The managing director of Access Bank, Aig Imokhuede is sure in a party mood, the banking whizkid who just laid off about 200 top staff for no reasons has just lavished close to a N200m (Two hundred million Naira) to bring one of the hottest R &B/ Soul songstress, Mariah Carey from the U.S. This much National Enquirer can reveal.
According to sources, the bank’s management yesterday had a weird end of the year bash at the 3rd floor of the prestigious Intercontinental hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos and those who attended confided in us that, the fun was unlimited as bottles of champagnes were popped like water.
This office gathered reliably that, the Access Bank MD, Aig had been dreaming of hosting this one in town party where Mariah Carey will host few of his very close friends and confidants, even not all Access Bank’s staff were opportune to attend, yet the party was tagged “Access Bank End Of Year Bash”.
National Enquirer gathered exclusively that, in the front burner of the logistics of bringing Mariah Carey is Aig’s deputy, Herbert Wigwe who’s believed to be stepping in as the new MD, once Aig leaves next year.
“I can’t imagine why a whole bank, an institution entrusted in keeping public fund will embark on such a monumental waste of spending such a stupendous amount on bringing a musician from the U.S for just a party, what kind of party are you doing that can’t pay a Nigerian artiste, we knew that was why he sacked almost 200 staff last month to be able to accommodate the wasteful party and launder some funds, the MD is too randy, that was how they’re using people’s money to acquire private jet, this is somebody that’s lobbying to become governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, his days are definitely numbered, we’re compiling documents of some of his financial atrocities to give to the press soon, we must expose them” one of the aggrieved staff told us.
The stupendously rich MD of Access Bank, Aig was the host of honour yesterday at the grade A party where he was seen feeling cool and having fun at the Mariah Carey party where Champagne and other assortment of quality wines and much to munch were “ACCESS-ibly’ in excess.
Efforts to speak to any of the bank’s corporate communication staff were abortive as their phones rang endlessly without response; we guess they’re still recovering from hangover from the party but we later got to know that, the wild lavish party was meant to send-forth the bank’s MD who’s said to be retiring but at then, spending such money on a send-forth gig is rather too much comparing what our society is saying.
