Outrage as Chinese supermarket in Abuja denies Nigerians entry

A Chinese supermarket in Abuja has come under fire after allegedly restricting Nigerian customers from accessing the store.

The supermarket situated at the China General Chamber of Commerce, along Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Road in Abuja, is acclaimed as a destination for Chinese cuisine and beverages.

In the viral footage, the unidentified Nigerian man can be seen expressing his frustration and shock as he is turned away at the supermarket entrance.

The management reportedly cited restrictions on Nigerian customers, prompting the man to voice his dismay at the discriminatory treatment.

In his statement captured in the video, the man lamented the situation, noting the inconvenience of having to seek out alternative shopping venues despite his interest in exploring Chinese cuisine and products.

This discovery has generated a lot of bad feelings among Nigerians who have described the supermarket’s policy as discriminatory. They called on the government to intervene.

@Emmajun83175611 said he found the situation unbelievable. He asked, “Your Excellency Sir please can a Nigerian own a business in China and Chinese people are restricted from the premises?? Have you guys sold this country to China? Cause how could this have been going on for years and @followlasg kept quiet about it?? NIGERIA WHEN?”

@emrayiam reacted; ““Omo, in our own country? Nigerians can’t enter to shop in a Chinese supermarket in Nigeria? And yet they are using Nigerians as workers in the same place? This is an embarrassment of the highest order on the government/citizens of Nigeria. This is arrant nonsense, our government are the cause of this, when they don’t value their own citizen, how would they respect and value us.”
