Justrite Superstore, a merchandising outfit involved in commodity trading has openly come out to say they stand with Nigeria despite the fact that they have also had a fair share of the attacks by hoodlums in some of their stores in Lagos and Osun state.
”Our Bariga store was attacked and vandalized by looters on Wednesday, Octoer 21, 2020 in the midst of the general breakdown of law and order in Lagos State. Our other Stores at Ikorodu and Iju (Lagos neighbourhoods) and Osogbo (Osun State capital) were also threatened by arsonists. These should be worrisome development to any business.
However, as a company, our bigger concerns are with our great nation (Nigeria) and Nigerians’ well being. Our faith in Nigeria and optimism about her future are unshaken. It is therefore our hope and aspiration that there would be a peaceful resolution to all issues in contention and our dear Nigeria will resume its journey towards greatness.
We are immensely grateful to all our numerous customers and other stakeholders for your kind messages and love. Be assured that we would do our best to ensure that our commitments to you are not affected negatively.
