Mr Bigg’s revamps operation, introduces contemporary restaurants 

After 33 years of being the most sought-after fast food restaurant in Nigeria, Mr Bigg’s is no longer as big as it used to be, having struggled to deliver on its ‘pay-off’ and compete in a Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) market that’s in a shake-out phase already. 

In a bid to revive the heritage of its QSR arm, being run by its subsidiary, UAC Restaurants Limited, UAC of Nigeria has commenced an initiative aimed at remodelling Mr Bigg’s restaurants. 

Speaking on the new initiative, the Marketing Manager of UACN Restaurants, Ethel Mba said Mr Bigg’s was committed to revamping its restaurants into a scintillating go-to restaurant of high-value lifestyle. 

The new model at a glance: Mr Bigg’s has pioneered a model restaurant of the new initiative, which promises the sustainability of excellence in a wide variety of dishes, pastries and confectioneries to the delight of its teeming consumers.

Why this matters: The new initiative is expected to boost Mr Bigg’s market value, and at the same time, enhance the company’s competitive prowess. 

What you should know: From the late 1970s to early 2000s, Mr Bigg’s was the prominent fast-food chain for every Nigerian, with outlets situated in almost all communities, especially in the South-West. Just like MTN Nigeria, Mr Bigg’s was “everywhere you go.”

It was a home away from home for most Nigerians, regardless of their social classes, as it offered delicacies that left customers with a delicious experience.

Access Bank , #EndSARS: Access Bank Debunks aiding military onslaught against Lekki protesters

Access Bank Nigeria Plc has vehemently debunked rumour making the rounds that it aided the military onslaught against peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki, by allowing military snippers access its head office tower for operations. 

Backstory: Recall that Nairametrics had earlier reported on how soldiers allegedly fired gunshots to disperse #EndSARS protesters in Lekki yesterday.

In view of this development, there have been public outcries and ensuing allegations, one of which is that Access Bank Nigeria Plc aided the military onslaught.

What they are saying

In response to the allegations, the bank first reacted to the development by expressing condolence. A verified tweet by the bank read thus: “We are deeply saddened to hear about the unfortunate loss of innocent lives yesterday at the Lekki Toll. We pray that the souls of the innocent rest in peace”.

In addition, the bank stated: “We wish to address the statement by Arise TV alleging that Military Snipers were allowed access to our Head Office Tower for operations at the Lekki Toll Gate area. This is absolutely untrue. The video shared on Arise TV featured an employee of the bank conducting routine maintenance at the Tower location. It is unfortunate that this was reported as a sniper without any proof. As a corporate citizen with the purpose of impacting lives positively, we will never endanger the lives of Nigerians.”
