Nigeria’s eCommerce startup, Konga, has appointed Olusiji Ijogun as its chairman with effect from April 1, 2018. Mr Ijogun was a former top executive of UAC.
Zinox which recently acquired Konga described Ijogun in a statement as a seasoned and widely experienced technocrat with over three decades of top-notch performance in finance and management, in a recent statement.
His expertise includes business consulting, construction, property development and management and until his appointment, and currently serves as the CEO of Innodel Consulting and the Chairman of Ackmen Nigeria Limited.
Since the beginning of this year, Konga has struggled to maintain its market position as one of the leading eCommerce in Nigeria. Thus the takeover by Zinox. Hopefully, with this appointment, the fortunes of Konga will turn around and they will be able to give Jumia-which seem to be flying solo for now-a run for their money.
