I'll be leaving Delta State for Lagos first week of October and I plan to resume on Monday the 10th of October...I'm much better now, I'll use a walking aid but only for a few months as continual physiotherapy will correct my movement 100% .
I want to thank you very much for your patience and understanding during this period. I really appreciate it and God bless you.
See you soon
I sent it to the Operations manager, the financial controller (because they have been paying me since I left in May and courtsey demands, and my head of department)
The next day (28th September 2011) my HOD responded with:
Glad to hear you are getting better and would be coming back soon.
While looking forward to having you back, may I say …may the Lord keep you.
All the best!
I arrived Lagos yesterday and today I went through my emails as usual before bed and found another email from my HOD sent today the 5th of October 2011 and it goes:
'Dear Nutty J,
The decision has been taken by management to terminate your employment with immediate effect.
Attached is a scan copy of the formal letter to that effect. Original/acknowledgement copy will be delivered to you at your present address by courier.
Please acknowledge receipt of this email and provide your current address by return email.
Wishing you the very best in your future endeavor.'
I just read it 5mins ago ie 10: 50pm... I haven't replied or acknowledged the email... probably cos I dont know how to reply or maybe I'm just pissed off. I could have stayed in Delta State and finished my physiotherapy where it is cheap instead of rushing down here back to Lagos, and making arrangements with a private Physiotherapist, or maybe I'm just too chicken to acknowledge receipt of the email tonight.
Anyways I wont think about it tonight... I'll think about it tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day.
