South Africa’s grocery retailer ShopRite has debunked the report that it’s leaving Africa’s biggest market, Nigeria, 15 years after it opened shop in the West African country.

The Country Director for Chastex Consult, Ini Archibong, told Vanguard ;

“Shoprite is not leaving Nigeria. “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. “We only gave this opportunity to Nigeria investors to come in and also help drive our expansion plan in Nigeria. So we are not leaving. “I have tried to say this to many people as I can. There should be no panic at all and all of that. There is no truth in that report.”
