To create as much awareness as possible and give Ghanaians the opportunity to be part of this historic event,” said Ore Odusanya, Co-MD Jumia Ghana.
“We have added a couple more pick-up outlets around the country to ensure that customers outside Accra also get their ordered products delivered to them.
