Written by on March 2, 2022
An apprentice, Sunday Ndenta, has expressed dissatisfaction with the settlement he got from his master after serving him for over 14 years.
Ndenta spoke to journalists on the sideline of a youth forum, tagged, ‘Igba Boi Apprenticeship Scheme,’ in Awka, Anambra State.
The scheme is seeking the revival of the apprenticeship system in the South-East. Ndenta, a 35-year-old indigene of Igbo-Ukwu in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, said he was given a tricycle after his apprenticeship with his master who operated pharmaceutical stores at the Onitsha Bridge Head Market.
He noted that his master gave him the tricycle under a lease agreement, an arrangement he described as “strange and awkward.”
Ndenta, who spoke amid tears, did not disclose how much returns he makes to his boss on a daily basis and how much he had remitted so far and when he would balance the payment.
The spokesperson for the Onitsha Bridge Head Market, identified simply as Tochukwu, said the market leadership will investigate on the matter andshall treat it accordingly.
