Leading Information and Communication Technology company, MTN Nigeria, is turning things up for over 2,000 retailers across the country with the “Kiosk as a Service” scheme.
“Kiosk as a Service” is a scheme that will empower over 2,000 retailers with an omnibus stall that will enable each retailer provide MTN’s bouquet of products and services more efficiently. Customers will be able to access services like SIM registration, (mobile money) MoMo, 4G migrations, buy airtime and so much more.
Starting with the South-West region of the country with over 180 already installed in Lagos State, the kiosks come pre-fitted with solar panels that will power the kiosk, enable users to charge phones and generally support the ease of doing business.
Speaking on the laudable scheme, the Chief Sales and Distribution Officer, MTN Nigeria, Mr. Kunle Adebiyi, said “The ‘Kiosk as a Service’ is a demonstration of MTN’s unwavering belief in partnership.”
Known for empowering communities where they operate, Mr. Adebiyi said MTN’s use of pre-installed solar panels on the kiosks was a deliberate action and a commitment to ensure that the company leads the clamour for the use of renewable energy as a way to preserve the environment.
“We are good together is a philosophy that is integral to our operations. We are empowering our retailers so that through this scheme, they can turn things up for themselves. We are confident that this will empower thousands of Nigerians to become the much-needed drivers of the country’s economy because we believe that we can go far when we go together,” he said.
With an unemployment rate that currently stands at 23.1 percent, and projected to reach 33.5 percent before the end of 2020 according to the National Bureau of Statistics, the scheme is a testament to MTN’s belief in the growth and development of Nigeria’s economy.
