We Are Not Leaving Nigeria – ShopRite

THE management of Shoprite, a South African owned retail supermarket in Nigeria has refuted viral claims that it is set to close down operations in Nigeria.

According to Vanguard, Ini Archibong, the Country Director for Chastex Consult confirmed that Shoprite is not closing operations in Nigeria.

Contrary to claims that Shoprite is leaving Nigeria, Archibong said the business is only opening its doors to local investors.

“We have only just opened to Nigerian investors which we have also been talking to just before now. We are not leaving, who leaves over a $30billion investment and close shop? It doesn’t sound right,” Archibong reportedly said.

“I have tried to say this as too many people as I can. There should be no panic at all and all of that. There is no truth in that report,” Archibong noted.
