Outcry Leads to Closure of Abuja-Based Chinese Supermarket Following Discriminatory Policy


The Chinese supermarket located in Abuja, Nigeria, has shut its doors amidst growing outrage over its discriminatory practices.


Over the weekend, Nigerians took to social media to express their dismay after learning that the supermarket, situated at the China General Chamber of Commerce along Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Road, had implemented a policy that prohibited Nigerians from entering the premises. The policy sparked widespread condemnation, with many denouncing it as discriminatory and unacceptable.


Following the public outcry, the management of the Chinese supermarket took the decision to close its doors temporarily. This move comes amidst mounting pressure from both Nigerian citizens and authorities to address the issue and ensure that such discriminatory practices are not tolerated within the country.


While the closure provides a temporary respite, the incident has reignited conversations about inclusivity and respect for diversity within Nigeria’s business community.


Many are calling for concrete measures to prevent similar occurrences in the future and uphold the principles of equality and non-discrimination.
