OLX Has Shutdown All of its Operation Units in Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya

It is no longer news that Businesses in Nigeria are operating under economic harsh condition and those businesses who couldn’t survive packed up. Efritin, an online market place came with everything and left with nothing last year, Konga has been bought and now… OLX has left the building!
OLX, an online global market place with physical presence in more than 40 countries, that gives everyone an opportunity to make money by selling any old/new stuffs you don’t like or don’t want to use again has left the building.

According to the original news we heard, Naspers (Multinational media group and investor) has allegedly shut down all OLX offices in Africa except the one in South Africa. Operations in Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya are going to be affected by this announcement.

Staff in these offices have been informed and are expected to fully move out by the end of March 2018.

According to the CEO of OLX in Asia, Middle East and Africa alleged that OLX has indeed been shut down in Nigeria but no mention of Kenya and Ghana.

We made a difficult but important decision in Nigeria to consolidate our operations between some of our offices internationally.

Our marketplace will continue to operate here — uninterrupted — as it has since 2010, and we remain committed to the many people here who use our platform to buy and sell every month. We continue to be focused on constantly innovating to make sure that OLX remains the top classifieds platform in the country.

Of course, we are committed to helping our affected colleagues during this transition and have already offered them meaningful financial and other support. As we’ve expressed to them directly, we are extremely grateful for their many significant contributions to OLX’s success.

Now we have only one online market place where you can buy and sell old/new stuff for physical cash. How did Jiji.ng manage to survive this economic harsh condition?

Note: Naspers are investors in MultiChoice operators of the DStv and GOtv satellite televisions and the recently acquired Konga.
