Shoprite Exit: LCCI Explains Challenges Hurting Business Operations in Nigeria

Published

shoprite

Following the recent announcement of Shoprite, a leading South Africa retail giant, that it is leaving the Nigerian market due to harsh business environment and tough business policies, Dr Muda Yusuf, the Director-General, Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has explained some of the challenges responsible for such decision despite Nigeria’s huge population size.

Yusuf said while such decision is negative for the Nigerian economy, several factors like harsh business environment could have forced the company to make such decision. He said it also could be due to intense competitive pressure.

He said, “Shoprite is an international brand with presence in 14 African countries and about 3,000 stores. The comparative analysis of returns on investment in these countries may have informed the decision to exit the Nigeria market.

“The opportunities for retail business in Nigeria is immense. But the competition in the sector is also very intense.

“There are departmental stores in practically every neighbourhood in our urban centres around the country. There is also a strong informal sector presence in the retail sector. It is a very competitive space.”

According to the Director-General, there are also important investment climate issues that constitute downside risks to big stores like Shoprite.

He said, “These include the trade policy environment, which imposes strict restrictions on imports; the regulatory environment, which is characterised by a multitude of regulators making endless demands.

“There is also the foreign exchange policy, which has made imports and remittances difficult for foreign investors. There are challenges of infrastructure which put pressures on costs and erodes profit margins.”

The LCCI boss added, “But we need to stress that Shoprite is only divesting and selling its shares; Shoprite as a brand will remain. I am sure there are many investors who will be quite delighted to take over the shares.

“It should be noted that there are other South African firms in Nigeria doing good business. We have MTN, Multichoice, Stanbic IBTC, and Standard Chartered Bank, among others. Some of them are making more money in Nigeria than in South Africa.”

He added that some sectors are more vulnerable to the challenges of the business environment than others.

Consumers of premium lager, Trophy were treated to a unique experience when the beer makers unveiled Nigeria’s tallest bottle in Lagos.

The epoch-making event which held at the Ikeja City Mall in Lagos had in attendance Trophy brand ambassadors: Falz and Femi Adebayo, celebrities, government officials, consumers, and other stakeholders.

Speaking at the occasion, Marketing Director, International Breweries Plc, Tolulope Adedeji revealed that the decision to erect Nigeria’s tallest beer bottle which stands at 46 feet was borne out of the desire to commemorate Trophy’s feat as the number one beer brand in Nigeria.

“We are the leading beer brand in Nigeria today, especially in the South West where we have received a lot of love from our consumers, and that’s why we resolved to honour them with this one-of-a-kind experience,” she said.

Poets, dancers, drummers and praise singers were on-hand to thrill consumers who purchased at least six cans of beer—an experience the Marketing Manager, Trophy, Bamise Oyegbami described as Waa Gbayi.

“The Numero Uno project we are experiencing today is the unveiling of the Trophy fibreglass structure which appears to be the tallest ever considering the absence of a record of its type according to the Guinness World Records. It is a follow up to the waa gbayi experience where we took the honour to the homes of our consumers by giving them a personalised experience of what it is to be an “Honourable” through activities such as praise-singing and socialising with free drinks,” Oyegbami said.

A loyal Trophy consumer, Femi Oyeleke who witnessed the event applauded Trophy lagers ingenuity with the creation and unveiling of Nigeria’s tallest beer bottle. The 38-year-old described Trophy’s commitment to doing something out of the ordinary as “refreshingly different”
