Konga Unveils Plans to Employ 1 million Africans

Konga, Nigeria’s leading composite e-commerce giant, is set to become one of the biggest employers of labour in Nigeria after unveiling plans to provide meaningful employment opportunities for over 500,000 Nigerians as well as another 500,000 in other African countries by 2025.

The Konga Group said it currently provides direct and indirect employment for well over 250,000 Nigerians across its multiple entities, including its growing chain of over 35 retail stores scattered across Nigeria; the Konga Marketplace, a game-changing initiative which it pioneered in Africa; Konga- Pay, a Central Bank of Nigeria- licensed Fintech platform; Kxpress, an ambitious digital logistics company with huge delivery assets; Konga Travel, an IATA-certified revolutionary travel, and tours company; the recently launched Konga Health, a digital health care distribution chain, and the soonto- be-launched Konga Food, among many others.

Nick Imudia, Co-CEO, Konga Group, while chatting with newsmen virtually, disclosed the motivation behind the massive job creation drive. ‘‘We are passionate about giving as many Nigerians and Africans who are qualified and ready to work the opportunity to find meaningful expression of their talents.

An example is our partnership with Edo Stae Government which shall not only employ thousands of youths, but shall enhance and facilitate activities for SMEs in the state to become global corporate citizens.”

‘‘This is because we believe, in line with the Konga mantra, that this will help them find happiness and live fuller, richer lives. But it doesn’t just end with the unemployed. Our research has shown that there are quite a number of under-employed Nigerians, many of who can make a difference across the board if given a chance.

‘‘Therefore, as a strong corporate citizen and in line with the status of the Konga Group as a company built as a public trust, Management has set an ambitious target to employ over 500,000 Nigerians by the year 2025. This is no mean feat by any standards, but at Konga, we are known for never shying away from confronting challenges and surmounting them.

‘‘We will be rolling out these creative employment opportunities soon and we are confident that it will offer many Nigerians who are determined to achieve, a useful avenue to, not only find gainful employment but also create employment and wealth for others,’’ he stated.
