Twitter Gives Update On It’s Recruitment Process In Ghana

Published

on

Following the establishment of its first African office in Ghana, Twitter says it would recruit experts of major local languages in Nigeria (Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa) for its operations.

The company stated that the remote position is available for all candidates but the employee must have a full understanding and interpretation of news content from the Nigerian media.

Other criteria for the job includes the ability for candidates to have adequate knowledge and understanding of English and Pidgin English which is also commonly spoken in Nigeria.

“Twitter is looking for a passionate people manager to take on the role of Curation Lead for Nigeria.

“This person will manage a team that is focused on quickly, accurately and impartially summarising complex conversations that are unfolding in real-time on Twitter and important to users in Nigeria.

“While this role is primarily focused on English and English Pidgin content, working proficiency in one or more of the following languages is an advantage: Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo,” parts of the requirements on the career section of the company stated.

Background.

Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO, on Monday announced via his Twitter handle that the company would be citing its first African base in neighbouring Ghana, to the chagrin of Nigeria’s vast tech industry, Peoples Gazette reported.

The Ghanian President Nana Adufo welcomed the company into the Ghanaian business environment while acknowledging the company’s partnership with the country.

Ghana is on the uptick in technological advancement and has a comparatively more appealing environment for business.

Conversely, Nigeria’s economy is struggling for survival under the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, and has just survived the second economic recession in five years. Bloomberg also places the country’s unemployment rate at 33 per cent, second-highest in the world.

Nonetheless, Nigeria’s internet technology space continues to advance speedily as young innovators continue to roll out world class tech solutions amid scanty government support.

The internet market also keeps expanding. According to a survey by NOIPolls, there are 39.6 million registered Twitter users connected in Nigeria compared to Ghana with about eight million active users.

Arsenal’s technical director Edu added: “Ben has been a key target this summer. He has so many qualities which make us so excited he’s joining us. Ben’s a young English player with a great future.

‘Get Ready For Us’ : GRA Tells Oswald’s Teacher Mrs Appiah As They Plan To Chase Her For Gift Tax

Published

on

The Ghana Revenue Authority, (GRA), has set its sights on the class teacher who was given the topmost priority on the ‘Our Day’ petition of 9-year-old Oswald to his mother.

Mrs Appiah, a tutor at the Christ Ambassador School in Dansoman, has been described by Oswald as his favourite teacher because she’s really helped him to settle in school.

Therefore, she was going to receive a big bottle of soda drink from the pupil. But fortunes changed after the son-to-mother letter went viral and attracted sponsorship from top companies, beverage brands, educational and financial institutions among others.

It appears the state revenue mobilization agency keenly monitored all the donations made to ensure that the ‘Our Day’ goes beyond a day’s event and has come through with its intentions.

In a post sighted by KUBILIVE, the GRA shared a photo of Oswald and his teacher, Mrs Appiah, on its official Instagram account and indicated that they will be coming after her for gift tax.

Amid laughing emojis, the company joked that it will pardon Oswald because he was too young to commit to taxes, but served notice to the teacher to prep herself to ‘pay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar’ (pun intended).

The post read below.

“The boy is too young for gift tax but somebody should kindly tell Mrs. Appiah to get ready for us ???”, the company captioned the snap.

The move comes against the backdrop of the Revenue Authority going after Naa Dromo, the second daughter of renowned preacher Sam Korankye Ankrah, who received $1million dollars as a wedding gift from some of her friends.

Consequently, the GRA in a letter dated July 15, extended an invitation to Naa Dromo to pay gift tax on the money and for further discussions for defaulting in tax compliance.

However, her father who is the Apostle General of the Royal house Chapel International said the cheque was a dummy, describing it as a “faith cheque”.
