MTN Nigeria supports 2,050 retailers with solar powered kiosks

MTN Nigeria, one of the nation’s telecom services provider, is supporting over 2,000 retailers across the country with the “Kiosk as a Service” scheme.

“Kiosk as a Service” is a scheme that will empower the retailers with an omnibus stall that will enable each retailer provide MTN’s bouquet of products and services more efficiently.

Customers will be able to access services like SIM registration, (mobile money) MoMo, 4G migrations, buy airtime and much more.

Starting with the South-West region of the country with over 180 already installed in Lagos State, the kiosks come pre-fitted with solar panels that will power the kiosk, enable users to charge phones and generally support the ease of doing business.

Commenting on the scheme, the telco’s Chief Sales and Distribution Officer, Mr. Kunle Adebiyi, said “the ‘Kiosk as a Service’ is a demonstration of MTN’s unwavering belief in partnership.”

Known for empowering communities where they operate, Adebiyi said the telco’s use of pre-installed solar panels on the kiosks was a deliberate action and a commitment to ensure that the company leads the clamour for the use of renewable energy as a way to preserve the environment.

“’We are good together’ is a philosophy that is integral to our operations. We are empowering our retailers so that through this scheme, they can turn things up for themselves. We are confident that this will empower thousands of Nigerians to become the much-needed drivers of the country’s economy because we believe that we can go far when we go together,” he said.

With unemployment rate currently standing at 23.1 percent and projected to reach 33.5 percent before the end of 2020 according to the National Bureau of Statistics, the scheme is a demonstration of the telecom operator’s belief in the growth and development of Nigeria’s economy.
