tianshi all over the world: AFRICA

“Tianshi”, an catch name for Tiens Group, a Chinese company, registered in Nigeria as Tianshi Health Products Company Nigeria Limited. It was year 2004 after months of registration I involved my company and friends in their product distribution, media and marketing consultancy, without knowing the enigma of Tianshi. However, knowing that Tianshi is a multi-level marketing (MLM) outfit, we do not approach them for outright advertisements but promotional.

The height of our performance was when Nigeria produced two (2) cities Lagos and Abuja that won the gold and silver respectively as the world most selling shops for Tiens Group. The then Lagos Managing Director, Mr. Yanlei Wu, who also oversees other West African countries and Kenya promised extending our services to this regional zone. We had very good working relationship. For major ideas, he personally visits my office. These activities earned him a promotion as Tiens Group Vice President, Africa Region.

We learnt major decisions are taken in their corporate headquarters in Tianjin, China. So, all our Directors had to embark on the process of achieving this objective – raising money, etc. in order to trip to and from China. Due to my persuasion, my Elder Brother loaned some money. We later discovered the “agreement” the lawyer wrote did not reflect the loan. It was actual chicanery that our family houses became an issue in the draft.

The first visit to Tianjin, China year 2005 discussion with the Media Head (worldwide) Mr. Richard Cao was most remarkable. This led to the approval of USD$380,000 (Over N50 million) It was the most interesting announcement presented by Tiens Group President Mr. Li Jinyuan in a conference, in Kenya, November 2005 that Tiens Group will spend the amount for media presentations in Nigeria. We were later told the money has been squandered.

The continuous low sales in Nigeria that made most distributors stop the business while BMW Car awardees scrambled for other networks to earn a living, others outrightly sold their new cars and join employment necessitated our second visit to China September 27th to November 6th, 2006 mainly to revive Tiens Group Marketing in Nigeria. Serious deliberations were presented in Tianjin, China at the office of the Marketing Development Department (in charge of worldsales) headed by Mr. Li Ping. Letters and scanned pictures were left behind.

The above visits to Tianjin, China and the letters left behind may have prompted the February 2007 visit of an “Investigator” – Mr. Henry Shen, the President Tiens Group Africa Region. On a day he said he devoted to my company alone, we met for a comprehensive discussion. He actually saw things practically. At the end, we left the already e-mailed letters (September 27th, 2006, February 10th and 16th, 2007 respectively, reference letters July 4th 2006 and August 2nd, 2006) among others to be “hand-delivered” to Tiens Group President. On phone, I got the response that they were faithfully submitted and discussed.

Worried by my creditors and tired of watching partial interpretation of our ideas though confirming the axiom: “There are limitations in imitation”, I then sent a compassionate letter to Tiens Group President, Mr. Li Jinyuan on August 15th, 2007 demanding for our consultancy fees to enable me pay my creditors. In case he needs verification using his lieutenants in Nigeria, names and addresses of my creditors were given to him with full details of how my family houses became an issue while doing business with Tianshi.

Through a law firm, I got a disclaimer notice dated August 23rd, 2007 reading: ” It is also within our knowledge that our client never in any time engaged you or your company to carry out any work ” Quoting Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) Act 2004, copying EFCC Chairman and Lagos State Commissioner of Police. Sticking to their disclaimer decision though another law firm has written with documented evidences and sent a reminder, they simply refused to reply.

The unscheduled visit of Tiens Group President Mr. Jinyuan to Nigeria (October 2007) was not unconnected with our letters. All the investment proposals to Nigeria he promised were the excellent feasibility study report accompanied with my presentation in newspapers (same day) sent to him on April 24th, 2007 via e-mail. As promised in the report that Lagos Tianshi Managing Director Mr. Simon Shen be contacted for detailed discussion, we met him and stressed the possibilities of Tianshi jointly establishing Institution and Manufacturing Plant on Herbal Products in Nigeria.

During our last meeting of Top Distributors (August 6th 2007) held at Tianshi Head Office in Lagos, the over 50 major distributors in attendance representing Lagos zone will recall my comments on this issue and this very report, I discussed with Lagos Managing Director on Tianshi capital project in Nigeria. One of the first Tianshi distributors in Nigeria, Mr. Uvoh, said: “This is the main agenda for today’s meeting”, subsequently, it was discussed extensively and resolution taken. At least, this is another of my sweat. I am a fellow human and I deserve credit not ignominy. I am a stakeholder of this project in Nigeria. I spent my early life’s savings and gratuity from Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on this. The current standard of Tiens Group and the likes that Nigerians revered today was my initial plans in 1990/1991 that in 1992 I came out with this invitation. Throughout Nigeria, very good number of men and women got this invitation.

It has been like this since year 2004 when we commenced assisting Tianshi in Nigeria. The benefits they derive from us are innumerable, hence we are demanding for our wages in order to continue our endeavours to humanity. Worldwide, companies pay for such sincere services with appreciation.

However, Mr. Li Jinyuan pretended not to be aware of my plight and the family houses I am losing to my creditors. He simply saw the people he needed to see and left Nigeria. Somebody should tell him that Nigerians are not demented. Nobody has a monopoly of making money without caution.

The hard postures of these Chinese are not mere arrogance but greediness. They are bleeding Nigeria and Nigerians. From April, 2005, Federal Government of Nigeria stopped Tianshi from collecting taxes on bonus. Deductions collected prior to this date were neither remitted to Government (no receipt to individual distributor) nor refunded to individuals concerned.
