No Nigerian denied access to Chinese supermarket, says Chinese Chamber



The China General Chamber of Commerce (CGCC) in Nigeria, says no Nigerian has been subjected to discrimination or denied access to the Chinese supermarket.

The supermarket is located within the premises of the Royal Choice Estate, Airport Road, Abuja.

The Secretary of China Chamber of Commerce, Mr Cui Guangzheng, said this in a statement in Abuja.

Guangzheng reiterated the commitment of the chamber toward ensuring equality and inclusiveness.

NEWSVERGE reports that a video posted by an unidentified FCT resident alleged that a Nigerian was denied access to the premises alleging that citizens were not allowed into the supermarket.

”The China Chamber of Commerce is one of several enterprises using the facility, and the supermarket in question is located in the residential area of the estate.

”No individual was subjected to discrimination or denied access to the estate or supermarket to purchase groceries as widely believed.

”We regret any altercation at the estate’s entrance gate between the security personnel and a customer, it does not reflect the official position of the estate management or the chamber of commerce.

“Our principles are to enhance friendship between the people of both countries and promote economic development,” he said.

NEWSVERGE so reports that the supermarket was under lock and key when officials of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) visited the supermarket.
