One Good Girl Gone – Well Almost
Skye Bank Manager sent on indefinite suspension – In a further dramatic move last week, Skye Bank head of marketing, Saffiedeen Tarawallie was placed in indefinite suspension by the bank on direct instructions from the banks head office in Nigeria.
The action was apparently as a result of what was perceived as her unholy relationship with the press, which it was alleged, had caused the bank some serious embarrassment.
Visiting members of the bank from Lagos, Nigeria are reported to have described her perceived actions in conspiring with the media as unprofessional.
The background to this action came to light recently, when the infighting within the bank led the different parties to contact different factions of the press each to try and tell his/her side of the story.
A media whiz kid, popular for his ability to switch between parties apparently gave the different factions the assurance that they were defending each of them. Unknown to them, the clever journalist simply took advantage of their gullibility and recorded their statements to play back to the opposing parties, thereby creating the mother of all wars.
As promised, outgoing Managing Director, Mr. Olumide Olatunjie has stated that he would not go down alone, as every single faction had skeletons in their pockets. It appears this latest suspension may be the result of one of the aces he holds in his deep pockets.
The suspended manager, a Sierra Leonean who used to work with Union Trust Bank before joining Skye in 2008, was a trusted aide of the former MD and was actually being tipped to succeed the current MD. In a dramatic chess move, she has now been thoroughly sidelined. Having being inadvertently recorded revealing confidential bank information to a mole journalist, she was swiftly placed on the back burner. Observers say Ms Saffie was so close to the former MD, Olatunjie that he spent many evenings at her residence. It is difficult to decipher who stabbed who in the back.
