Information Technology (IT) expert, Michael Adetayo has refuted claims made by Dynamics Intelligence, an IT firm, on the reasons for shutting operations in Nigeria.
In a message sent to Politicos on Friday, Adetayo alleged that the company does not employ full time staff or pay salaries. “He doesn’t employ fulltime or pay salary, yet he wants to lay intellectual ownership claims to the interns and temporary employee codes.” He queried, “without a contract?”
In an earlier response to the company’s Chairman, Jenna Bourgeois’ rant on Linkedin, Adetayo told him that “you have absolutely no basis to make this complaint.” He equally made reference to the company’s policy of not paying remuneration until a project is delivered.
Earlier in comments that went viral, Bourgeois had alleged that Nigerians are fraudulent and he could no longer cope, saying that is the reason behind the company’s decision to halt operations in Nigeria.
Bourgeois in his Linkedin handle noted that employees and contractors consistently defraud the company.
Hear him, “Effective immediately, we will be closing our operations in Nigeria. Over the last year, we have faced numerous examples of employees and contractors extorting the company.
“While we kept giving Nigerians a chance to gain skills and employment, we cannot run a company when we can’t trust the people who work for us. Any company interested in conducting business in Nigeria can reach out to us to learn how to avoid being scammed by technical resources.
“It is a kick in our face that we spent so much time trying to give Nigerians the benefit of the doubt to have this happen. Customers who wish to outsource, are well advised to seek an India-owned company for the best results.”
Dynamics Intelligence is an international recognized company, operating in US, Canada and Africa. The company provides solutions in technology and had partnered with Microsoft and Amazon to create custom cloud based productivity software.
Their chairman appears to have taken off his images from his LinkedIn account since he came under severe criticism from Nigerian. Especially a day after the indictment of nearly 80 Nigerians for IT related fraud in the United States.
