A man has recently taken to social media to narrate how a young man he helped with employment ended up requesting for four days per week for church activities.
A recent post by @ogbelejechikej1 on Twitter revealed that just after employing a young man, who had been begging him for a job, he was faced with a surprising request.
According to @ogbelejechikej1, the 28-year-old told him that, he would be needing Tuesdays and Saturdays off for choir rehearsal and Wednesdays and Sundays for church service.

Please give me the job. I don't go to church.
So because he needs your help, he shouldn't negotiate contract with you? Or he should terminate his commitment to church because you employed him? The age information, what was it for though Like, I want to understand.
Can't he be paid per day and have someone else work on the other days? I'm just asking. Is it because of the religious activities or... ? What if he was going to school, would say the same thing? Just curious, not criticising
I honestly love this kind of guy, he’s making you understand that the fact that he’s jobless doesn’t mean he’s idle, besides, if you’re understanding enough, he’s trying to tell you that his time can negotiated but very strict and lastly, this is a truthful person
When people make statements like this, what they mean is they want the entirety of your life. I said the same thing to some clients recently. They were going to lodge me for days to work for them day/night. I declined &, disgusted, they said "you're leaving money for church?"
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young Ghanaian man has recently granted an interview with Citi Newsroom and revealed that although he has been jobless for a year now, taking anything less than Ghc2000 as salary is out of the question.
Many react as bold man stands in traffic & asks to be employed as a home tutor; many say it's not safe
The bold young man, whose name was not disclosed, made this statement at the just ended Youth Employment Agency (YEA) job fair held at the Accra international conference centre from Thursday, September 9, 2021, to Friday, September 10, 2021.
According to the man, he will reject a monthly salary lower than Ghc2000 because he has an Information Technology (IT) background, and with his skills and certifications, he expects better pay.
