The Abuja Markets Management Limited (AMML), a subsidiary of Abuja Investments Company Limited (AICL) of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) said that it would soon commence online shopping markets in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and in other parts of the country.
In an interview with newsmen, the managing director of AMML, Abubakar Faruk explained that the company has all it takes to take over the online shopping market business in Nigeria, noting that Abuja is the only place with a structured market management system, because of the existence of the market management company.
Faruk explained that with structured and organised market management system in the FCT, it is possible to get in-touch with any trader or shop in the territory, just by a click of the button.
He added that the proposed online platform would not only enable Abuja traders reach larger spectrum of shoppers, but would also offer shoppers the opportunity of choosing and shopping from vast array of products and prices within the FCT.
“It would also be a melting point of opportunities among traders, manufacturers, government organisations involved in trade, consumer regulation, MSMEs and the economy in general. The traffic on the site will be terrific.”
The managing director noted that the project is in line with AMML’s vision and mission of making shopping pleasurable and also in line with the wider goal of the FCTA of making the nation’s capital city attains a world-class status.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the online platform is expected to become the biggest e-commerce website in Abuja and possibly take over the online shopping sector in Nigeria in the next couple few years.
