He said after the incident, he realised that POS business is a lifesaver.

In a chat with, the CEO of Happi Vibes added that an observation he made in his new area in Lekki further solidified his interest in POS.

"There is a street in this Jakande. I counted the POS outlets. Just one street. I counted 40 POS outlets from that Jakande market to Jakande junction, first gate. It is crazy. In my own street where I stay, there are more than 20 if you check from Ologolo down to Igbara. Like, they are everywhere.
"Even people who sell groceries do POS business and still enjoy patronage. I did business in Onitsha and it made me think how it is possible that there are many POS outlets and yet they all still get patronage. Someone at the front of my age makes N8k on a bad day."

The 25-year-old maintained that POS has made banking easy and now serves as the bridge between the unbanked and banking services.

"POS made banking easy. It helped to reach the unbanked. That is the beautiful thing and with this cash crunch issue in the country, most of these POS outlets becomes the best means for the unbanked to access banking services.
"Also, it has created many jobs. It is feeding a lot of families in Nigeria."

It is noteworthy that this is not the first POS outlet the young man has set up. This is only an addition.

Lady mocks her former school head boy who now does POS

Mocking his hustle, the lady explained that she expected him to be doing better as he saw everyone back in secondary school as unserious people.

"Omo I see head boy for my secondary school back then. Weyrey think say I don forget him face. With all the English for school back then, so na POS you go do last last weyrey."
