General Manager for Glovo Nigeria, Lorenzo Mayol, has affirmed the company’s commitment to the growth of the quick-sector market in Nigeria.
He stated this at an event held in Abuja recently to mark the company’s one year of operation in the country.
“We are excited and honoured to celebrate the first year of Glovo in Nigeria. We owe our success story to our partners for their unwavering hardwork and contributions, our users for their consistent loyalty, trust and support, and the couriers who collaborate with our platform.
“Nigeria is a key market for us due to its high and untapped potential and rapid growth, and the partnerships we have built so far have become a metaphor for endless possibilities. We remain committed to delivering value to our users, the community, and the country’s economy for years to come,” Mayol said.
Also speaking, Tokunbo Ibrahim, Public Affairs Manager, Sub-Saharan Africa for Glovo said: “We are committed to our entire ecosystem of partners, couriers and users. Our success driver so far is our culture of accountability as a company and how we leverage the strengths and capabilities of our workforce and partners to ensure quality and timely service delivery.”
Ibrahim said Since commencing operations in Nigeria, the company has signed over 3,000 partners with over 97 per cent being small and medium enterprises, onboarded and trained more than 2,000 couriers, and invested in local talent that drives its growth in this market.
“We will continue to work closely with our users and the wider community to ensure we deliver value by creating economic opportunities for all our stakeholders.”
