The impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic on businesses is very huge. Every sector of the economy has been severely hit. Businesses that do not have enough reserve during this pandemic have no choice but to lay off workers to keep the business afloat.
The media, specifically the private, whose survival mostly depend on adverts from businesses are also feeling the pinch from the pandemic. This has made some stations to terminate the contracts of some of their staff.
Naa Ashorkor of Showbiz A – Z and Strong and Sassy fame had her contract terminated by the Multimedia Group limited. On Monday she took to her Instagram page to announce the termination of her contract to her 1.8 million followers.
“I have got Good news and bad news everyone! With immediate effect as of yesterday, my now former employers, Multimedia Group, terminated my appointment. That's the bad news. Now for the good news, such situations only give my God the opportunity to show up.
It's not an easy time to be out of a regular and steady income. We are not in normal times, but hey, I would like to use this opportunity to encourage everyone who has lost their job or income during these difficult times to not lose hope.
Hope is an amazing thing that gives us the ability to stand and trust God in such difficult circumstances. Don't lose hope.
Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans. I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Stay tuned for some more news soon.”
