Nuli Juice Company is an indigenous and fast rising drink business focused on helping people  a live a healthy life. The drinks are made with 100% natural products which include a fine blend of natural fruits and local herbs from farmers in the country.

Nuli which began operation in Lagos few weeks ago, is owned by Ada Osakwe – 2014 Forbes 20 Youngest Power Women in Africa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu Leadership Fellow of the Africa Leadership Institute, fellow of the African Leadership Network (ALN) and 2016 World Economic Forum Global Leader.

What led to the demolition of her newly opened Ikoyi store by the Lagos State Government?

Just for the records, Nuli Juice Lounge was not the only SME that was demolished during this exercise, it was reported that a total of about 6 businesses were brought to the ground. Reports gathered suggest that the Landlord has no commercial permit and the Landlord was told of the demolition exercise by the state government but he in turn did not inform the shop owners.

According to reports from Nuli Juice’s instagram page, they said “Nigerians…this is our country. Woke up to this. Local government officials and police here to demolish all the shops on this street. They say they told the landlord but he did not inform shop owners. So they are about to break down Nuli Lounge. We have lost hope in Nigeria. It is finished!!”

Also on twitter, they gave a brief explanation of what transpired.

Well, in a country where revenue is at an all-time low and the economy is in a recession coupled with the loss of jobs on a daily basis, brutally eliminating SMEs is surely not a wise move. Although there have been calls to sue the government, we wait to see what happens next and the reaction of the state government.
