SA business in Nigeria suffering
Eyewitness News - Jan 26th 2012, 10:11
The Nigerian Chamber of Commerce in South Africa said the turmoil in the north African country had a major impact on the revenue of South African companies operating there.
Enterprises that have stakes in Nigeria include Shoprite, Game, MTN and Nando's.
Unions embarked on a week-long strike against a 50 percent fuel hike, while the country was also hit by sporadic bomb blasts set up by Islamic group Boko Haram.
This has also hampered operations in Lagos.
The chamber’s Dianne Games said, “Lagos, which is where a lot of people are based was forced to close down for a week.”
“There are productivity issues and companies have lost money. There is no doubt that no trading and no business will have an effect.”
