The latest entrant into Nigeria’s online and offline retail business, Yudala has announced a partnership agreement with Access Bank Plc and telecommunications giants, Airtel on the implementation of YUBOSS, an entrepreneurship scheme targeted at jobs and wealth creation for Nigerians.
Speaking during a contract signing ceremony held at the Corporate Head Office of Yudala Nigeria at Redemption Crescent, Gbagada, Executive Director, Personal Banking at Access Bank, Mr. Victor Etiokwu disclosed that YUBOSS is a game-changer which is set to unlock prosperity for millions of Nigerians, while taking the nation’s economy to greater heights at this critical period of our national life.
Etiokwu said: “The Yudala model – a fusion of online and offline retail – is one that has captured the imagination of people and the retail market. Right from the day the company was launched, there has been a huge reaction in the market place, in view of the novel idea behind its conception. When the discussions on YUBOSS commenced between both organizations, I was excited because this is an initiative that is set to empower millions of Nigerian youths and by extension, contribute to the growth and development of the Nigerian economy. I am not in doubt that this scheme will be a huge success, especially considering Yudala’s nationwide network of stores, the calibre of renowned entrepreneurs and investors backing Yudala and the drive and expertise exhibited by the entire team.”
The Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director, Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya said the strategic nature of Airtel’s partnership with Yudala would raise the profile of the YUBOSS scheme. He said modern economies no rely on information for wealth creation – a requirement Airtel fulfils with its 3G broadband wireless services which, he said, will go a long way in empowering YUBOSS members to become their own bosses.
YUBOSS is targeted at undergraduates, post-graduate students, unemployed and under-employed individuals who have the drive and ambition to earn money and be their own bosses.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Yudala Nigeria, Mr. Dave Ibelegbu, who signed the contract documents on behalf of the company, reiterated the massive impact YUBOSS will have in improving the lives of participants.
“I enjoin Nigerians to visit the Yudala website from October 20th to sign up to YUBOSS. This is a scheme that will definitely change the lives of millions of Nigerians. There is no investment on the part of members. Exceptional performers will enjoy commissions and swift movement through the scheme to become eventual business partners of Yudala.”
As part of the pre-launch of YUBOSS, Iyanya, Naeto C and Ali Baba, among others, will hold a work-out session with Nigerians at the National Stadium, Surulere on Saturday October 17th by 7am.
