Why we introduced Pay-Small-Small, explains Wakanow CEO

Published

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Wakanow.com Limited, a Nigerian online travel booking platform, Mr. Adebayo Adedeji has disclosed that his company introduced its Pay-Small-Small (PSS) product as part of efforts to help Africans find solutions to travel-related economic and financial challenges.

According to Adedeji,

“In most parts of Nigeria and Africa at large, travelling is still considered a luxury because of the economic position of the general populace.

The fact that over 50per cent of the Africa population live below the global poverty line and the abysmal state of the formal credit system in most developing countries, has made travel financing quite challenging.

Leave our daughters, sisters and mothers alone, Aisha Buhari reacts to recent rape cases

Wife of the Nigerian president, Mrs Aisha Buhari, has urged the Ministry of Women Affairs and all security agencies to ensure that all suspects caught in all the rape cases are brought to book.

Taking to her social media platforms, she indicated that women in Nigeria at the moment have become vulnerable.

Her post reads;

“It is devastating to hear about the gruesome death of our daughters who were mercilessly raped by men, who in some cases are their fathers, brothers, and protectors of their chastity.

Women are increasingly becoming vulnerable in a society that is expected to guaranty their safety and we owe it a duty to do everything possible to protect them.

Last year, I started working with governors’ wives of the 36 states to end gender-based violence in Nigeria. I launched a campaign with the governors’ wives and other stakeholders and issued a statement nation-wide in response to increasing and frequent reports of GBV with the slogan – Leave our daughters alone!

This was followed by a planned advocacy for the constitution of a presidential task force on ending GBV in Nigeria; prospective members were identified. The objective is to review the policy and legal framework on GBV with a view to proposing strengthening measures and an improvement plan.

In view of the recent developments, I, therefore, call on all stakeholders especially the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs as well as legal and security agencies to expedite action so that justice takes its course accordingly.

I will continue to work with the governors’ wives to ensure that relevant structures and policy frameworks are put in place to end gender-based violence in Nigeria.”
