Guardian News reports that Nigrians have been pouring out annger wondering if we are still in the stone age. Bellow are the reactions:
Ken Harris Says “What absurdity! No employer has the right whatsoever to cut your hair, the worst he or she can do is to ask you to conform to the prescribed hairstyles or at the worst suspend the erring officer for a couple of days. To resort to molestation/ physical abuse is highly condemned and the affected officer’s should sue FRSC. But, the problem is Nigerians don’t know their rights.”
Eyitayomi Omotogunja in anger said “This is rubbish. Why not just sanction them? Being someone’s boss does and should not give one limitless access to the employee’s space.”
ehi okupa opined “Really sad to see my people perish for lack of knowledge. More pathetic are the ladies who sat back and allowed this to happen. you are only a salve the moment you consent to being one.
THE LAW says “This is inappropriate, an indication of brutish leadership, of double standards, that leaves no room for correction. This act also impugn on basic human decency. It is demoralizing, and needs to be investigated. In a Jungle, jungle justice prevail…”
Emem Sunday Umoh retorted “Nonsense. Minor in major and major in minor, what a shame.”
walker3333 says “thats rubbish….i wonder if the boss himself knows his remit of what he can do..he himself could loose his job if the lady want to drag it up..could be litigated,,,she can sue provided shes educated to know her rights,,,majority had oluwole educational certificates apply for jobs…..not versed with whats even right within work establishment…..if they have a strong union they can back her up and sue the org,,,,association of army officer , governor senators etc wives,,,,did you see that,,thats humiliating to womanhood and profession,,she could be disciplined but not like that,,not in primary and secondary school..you cant even do that to students youll end up in court of law”
Ige says “This should have been an in-house discipline ; but it has turn to molestation . It used to happen like this in secondary schools back in the days .
uchenna says “Nonsense…what is this country turning into?
Eugene Jefferey in his advise says “Madam you have right to meet any legal attorney for legal action…but if na your Husband for house you no go agree”
