If there were any doubts as to who the superior online retail store in Nigeria was, those arguments were finally put to bed on Saturday as Jumia taught Konga a footballing lesson by beating them 2-0 at the Truppr Tech Football Tourney. Spectators at the event were quick to mischievously joke among themselves that they wished Jumia could have also taught their opponents some other valuable lessons, especially in the lines of service delivery and customer satisfaction.
The Truppr Tech Football Tourney, now in its third season, was held at the Meadows Hall School field and it brought together notable tech companies and startups in the Nigerian scene looking to showcase their prowess on the field of play. Companies such as Jumia, Konga, Andela, Budgit and more contested and jostled for the day’s big prize and Jumia came out tops!
Enroute to winning the trophy, Jumia defeated Andela 1-0, Konga 2-0, drew 0-0 with Budgit and met Andela again in the final where Jumia prevailed once more by the same initial scoreline. In case you missed that, the score lines show that Jumia were able to go through the entire tournament undefeated and remarkably did not concede a single goal.
Martin Ogbechie, the captain of the Jumia Team said, ”My appreciation goes out to the management of Jumia who have shown over time that they do not only care about ones contributions in the workplace, but that they also care and support ones interests outside of it. Also a big shout out to the team who proved that teamwork makes the dreamwork”
