Reno also said that there are capable entrepreneurs in Nigeria that can offer what Shoprite is offering at all Peak.
“The exit of Shoprite from Nigeria is NOT a bad thing. There are capable Nigerian firms that can do what Shoprite is doing, without repatriating their profits back to SA.”
“Nigerians ought to realise that one major reason why the Naira is shedding value like an ice cream in the Sahara Desert, is because too many foreign firms, like Shoprite, MTN and DSTV, make money from Nigeria, and repatriate it to SA, thereby putting downward pressure on the Naira.” He said
