My Career Struggle: Episode 1

Hello Yewande,

I read articles from your blog where i copied your contact. I am writing on behalf of my sister, she has had many job opportunities here in Abuja but has been stopped because of her refusal to ‘sleep’ with the boss. This is a serious silent epidemic in Nigeria. I dont know how much it has been talked about but it is real and as one who has 2 young girls it is dangerous to note that some men will demand sex before offering employment. Will be nice if you write about this silent but monstrous epidemic.

By the way she is a graduate of cooperative and rural development, i have advised her to seek volunteering which she doesnt mind. Please can you off some guidance regarding this option.

Kind regards

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    I know this things is really a big issue and thanks for speaking out. I would definitely write about that soon.

    My advice for her is this.
    -Protect her integrity and stick with keeping herself and not sleeping
    with the man. It’s very shameless of the man.
    -She should leave and look for another opportunity. Not all environments
    have that issue.

    I wish her the best!

  2. This is the order of the day in this our modern settings. She should not just succumb to the slogan that says ”use what you have to get what you want”. She should not give up trying another place. I believe that there is going to be light at the end of the tunnel. Best of luck

  3. Actually this is very common in Abuja, most company will openly tell you their opening if for “single ladies” only. Even if you end of getting the job, the sex wouldn’t end there, he’s going to sexually enslave you and tell the tales to his other colleagues which may approach you too.
