Jason responded that it was cheap and gave reasons why.
His reason for paying that amount for a Montessori school was because he and his wife could not enjoy that privilege, and the people who have the money to send their kids to such schools are not complaining:
‘My wife and I didn’t have any of the privilege we enjoy today. They know who their market is and N4-5m isn’t a big problem for anyone sending their kids here. There a dozen schools at this level like this in Lagos. Easy’.
The real drama began when people revealed that in his media company Iroko Tv, which he runs with his wife, the staff are paid 30 thousand naira- Nigeria’s minimum wage.
How much does he pay graduates at iroko TV?? 30k i guess?
In response to the question about how much they pay workers, Mary Njoku made a post on her Instagram to defend why they pay what they pay at Iroko TV
To this, a follower replied:
But when you want to employ people you ask for those qualifications? It’s normal for there to be an acceptable minimum wage for such qualification, if the person is not doing their job enough or not good enough then don’t employ them. Sorry but this is just another excuse to pay people shitty salary.
We can only hope that apart from their salary, the staff have other benefits.
