    DPO aseguró varios comerciantes clave nuevos, incluidos Dischem Baby City, Europcar y Pernod Ricard.

    Las ganancias y la mejora del rendimiento comercial fueron respaldadas por desarrollos de canales de marketing que aceleraron las adquisiciones de nuevos comerciantes y la introducción de la incorporación en tiempo real en 18 países fuera de Sudáfrica.

    DPO también agregó nuevos métodos de pago, implementando el dinero de Airtel en otros tres mercados y permitiendo el pago de cuenta a cuenta para todos los comerciantes de DPO en Sudáfrica y Nigeria.

    Nuevos mercados: captación de clientes en el Reino de Arabia Saudí; servicios directos al comerciante en Egypt Network ha firmado dos FI adicionales para los servicios de procesamiento de Issuer Solutions en el Reino de Arabia Saudita.

    Estos contratos proporcionan una base sólida para el objetivo de ingresos de Network.

    En Egipto, Network está lanzando servicios de pago directo al comerciante centrándose en el segmento de pymes durante la segunda mitad de 2022.

    La empresa espera que la oportunidad de ingresos aumente a partir de 2023 en adelante.

    Los ingresos de África aumentaron un 55,8 % interanual hasta los 68,5 millones de USD (primer semestre de 2021: 44,0 millones de USD), incluida una contribución de 15,2 millones de USD de DPO.

    Excluyendo DPO, el crecimiento de los ingresos fue del 21,1 % a/a.

    El desempeño general en África sigue siendo sólido, con un crecimiento constante entre los trimestres.

    Excluyendo DPO, el rendimiento fue relativamente más sólido en África del Norte y Subsahariana que en África del Sur. La región experimentó una expansión continua en todos los KPI asociados, con un crecimiento particularmente fuerte en la cantidad de transacciones procesadas en los servicios de Issuer Solutions.

    La contribución para el segmento de África aumentó un 80,0 % a/a, a USD 50,2 millones (1S 2021: USD 27,9 millones), con márgenes que aumentaron 980 bps a/a a 73,3 % (1S 2021: 63,5 %), impulsado por la inclusión de DPO que tiene mayores márgenes de contribución.

    Excluyendo DPO, la contribución para África aumentó un 36,4 % a/a hasta los 38,1 millones de USD, con márgenes del 71,5 %, un aumento de 800 pb a/a, lo que refleja el importante crecimiento de los ingresos y el apalancamiento operativo inherente al negocio.

    Si bien el desempeño refleja un comercio sólido en todas las regiones, África logró un crecimiento particularmente fuerte, respaldado por un aumento en las credenciales alojadas luego de la incorporación de nuevos clientes el año anterior y una mejora en la venta cruzada.

    El impulso general en la obtención de nuevos negocios, la venta cruzada y la expansión de las carteras de clientes existentes sigue siendo positivo, lo que da como resultado ingresos de nuevos contratos y carteras de tarjetas renovadas junto con servicios de valor agregado y basados ​​en proyectos.

    Ingresos de Merchant Solutions Merchant Solutions se centra en los servicios de pago directo al comerciante, junto con las actividades de procesamiento de adquirientes para las instituciones financieras.

    Excluyendo DPO, TPV y las tendencias de crecimiento de los ingresos fueron particularmente sólidas en el primer trimestre.

    El TPV doméstico se vio respaldado por la mejora de la confianza del consumidor y las condiciones económicas generales, mientras que el TPV internacional se vio respaldado por un alto número de visitantes, la EXPO de Dubái y los eventos deportivos.

    Los KPI se mantuvieron cómodamente por encima de los niveles previos a la pandemia, con un aumento del TPV nacional del 18 % en comparación con el primer semestre de 2019 y un aumento del TPV internacional del 7 % en comparación con el primer semestre de 2019.

    El crecimiento de los ingresos en DPO mejoró significativamente durante el período, donde el primer trimestre se vio afectado por la combinación de estrategias volúmenes comerciales y de puerta de enlace.

    El segundo trimestre experimentó una aceleración, respaldada por un crecimiento excepcionalmente fuerte fuera de Sudáfrica luego de una fuerte recuperación de la pandemia y el lanzamiento de nuevas capacidades, incluida la incorporación automatizada de comerciantes.

    CG Fire Service advises timber market traders to establish fire outposts

    Mr Abdulganiyu Jaji, Controller General (CG) of Federal Fire Service, has advised traders in Dei-Dei market, Abuja to establish a fire service outpost to tackle any fire outbreak in the market.

    Jaji gave the advice while addressing the market stakeholders and firemen of Dei-Dei Fire Service station on Tuesday.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the CG, who marked 100 days in office, also visited the Fire Service station in Nyanya and the Kubwa station currently under construction.

    He had also flagged off a medical outreach in Kpaduma community on Saturday.

    Jaji said that products being sold in the market were highly  combustible, as such it was imperative to have a fire outpost to quickly handle any emergency.

    He told the traders that the service would deploy firemen to any fire outpost made available by the traders.

    “It is not everything the government can do, the market belongs to you and you know how much you have invested in your business.

    “The money being invested is not comparable to when money is contributed to build an outpost, which is a social corporate responsibility.

    “There is also the need to ensure water is available at the outpost and most importantly a water tanker,” he said.

    The CG further advised the traders to allow the fire service to assess the integrity of the market buildings, including the routine biannual checks of the structures.

    He urged the various associations in the market to collaborate with the service in taking measures to guard against fire outbreaks.

    Jaji expressed concern that the land allocated for the development of a police station opposite the fire station had been converted to a plaza.

    He said that the firemen require police protection during emergencies in view of recurring mob attacks on the fire personnel.

    Jaji pledged to tackle the problem of light and back up generator in the station, which was needed to pump water during fire emergencies.

    Earlier, Mr Francis Obidike, Chairman, Dei-Dei Timber shade, said that the market needed a fire outpost in view of the materials being sold there.

    Obidike urged the CG to provide more firefighting trucks and equipment to Dei-Dei fire service station, which services the market and the whole community.

    He appreciated men of the fire service for their professionalism and timely response to fire outbreaks.

    Also, the Financial Secretary, Dei-Dei building materials market, Mr Chijioke Okafor, called on the government to safeguard the fire engines and personnel from mob attacks.

    Okafor attributed the recent attack on the station by mobs when traders clashed with some hoodlums in the area, to the absence of security personnel to guard the station.

    He urged the people to appreciate the work of the fire service personnel, and noted that the fire trucks at the station could not cater for the six markets in Dei-Dei. Jaji during his earlier visit to Nyanya Fire station advised firefighters to ensure their safety while fighting to save the lives and properties of citizens.

    “It doesn’t mean rescue shouldn’t take place, but the advice became important following the incessant attacks on firefighters in the area when responding to fire distress calls.

    “The community needs to look at the importance of fire service and know that we are their friends, not their enemies.

    “When our appliances get destroyed it would take months to repair and that would prevent the fight of future fire incidents,” he said.

    The CG assured the personnel that the new firetrucks destroyed by mobs in the area would be repaired soon.

    He however said that the trucks would not operate within areas threatening the safety of firemen until there was firm  assurance of safety from the community leaders.

    To tackle the issue of non- availability of water at the fire service station, Jaji said a borehole will be constructed after proper assessment of the land.

    “We will send someone to inspect here because we can’t just drill a borehole without ensuring there is water and we also have to ensure it is not hard water that can spoil appliances.

    “Before the year runs out, we will also ensure personnel from this station attend local trainings on world best practices,” he said.

    Jaji appreciated the Nyanya Police Division situated in the same compound with the fire station, for their cooperation.

    Responding, the DPO, CSP Alhassan Majia said that the police had always sent advance team to fire emergency locations since the attacks on firemen started.

    “Our job is to achieve the same goal of protecting citizens, so  we will continue to work together.

    “We are always ready to work with your men to protect lives and property,” he assured.

    New CP in Kebbi targets 30% crime reduction within 1st month

    The new Commissioner of Police in Kebbi State, Magaji Ahmed-Kontagora,  has promised to reduce crime rate by 30 per cent in his first one month in office.

    Ahmed-Kontagora made the pledge during his maiden press briefing at the Police Command Headquarters in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, on Tuesday.

    He said: “Our intention to bring crime rate down by 30 per cent in the first one month and by 75 per cent in the subsequent months must be achieved by the will of Almighty God.” On strategy to combat crime, the commissioner said that under his leadership, the command would evolve series of intelligence driven crime prevention strategies anchored on community policing.

    The new CP said that the command would also initiate community safety partnership through the mantra of “see something say something” to stem the rate of crime in the state.

    “Synergy with other sister agencies such as the military, DSS, Civil Defence Corps, NDLEA will be intensified in our efforts to rid the state of all crimes,’’ he said.

    Ahmed-Kontagora said that his telephone numbers and that of his management team, Area Commanders (ACs), DPOs and other sectional heads of the command would be made public to the residents to enable them pass useful and actionable information to the police.

    According to him, any such information provided by residents will be treated with utmost confidentiality.

    “The Area Commanders and DPOs are to create three permanent pin-down points to be manned by not less than four armed men in volatile areas within their areas of responsibilities (AORs).

    “DPOs must also embark on intensive patrol of their AORs from 0700 hours to 1100 hours in the day and 2200 hours to 0000 hours each day before handing over to their respective duty officers.

    “This must be followed by residential patrols from 0000 hours to 0400 hours.

    “Aggressive raids of criminas hideouts, including uncompleted and abandoned buildings and shops will also be carried out, therefore, all hands must be on deck in order to achieve these objectives,” he said.

    While appreciating the Inspector-General of Police for finding him worthy of the position, the CP pledged to use his wealth of experience to police the state excellently.

    “Even though, I may be new in the state, but as an old hand in the system, I will use my wealth of experience to pilot the affairs of the state excellently to move it to greater heights.

    “Before my deployment as CP to the state, I have been following the events in the state, particularly the activities of bandits and other criminal elements.

    “Also the political and economic situation of the state are not left out, this has prepared my mind for the enormous task ahead.

    “This administration’s mission statement has zero level tolerance for crime.

    I hereby wish to use this medium to warn all criminals in the state and those nursing the ambition to take to crime to have a rethink and leave the state for their own good.

    “This administration is going to be fair to all and sundry irrespective of tribe, race and status in the society.

    “We are going to put an end to all cases of human rights violation, extortion among others by policemen across the state,” he promised.

    The commissioner, who charged officers and men to brace up to change the trend of security challenges in the state, said that corruption and indiscipline among the rank and file would not be tolerated.

    He said that there would be policing the policemen “to ensure that they are doing what is expected of them at all times.

    Police debunk arrest of INEC officials in Lagos

    The Police Command in Lagos State on Saturday said no INEC official was arrested on Friday in connection with the ongoing Continuous Voter’s Registration (CVR) exercise  in the state.

    The command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday , while reacting to the incident.

    NAN reports that some online media on Friday reported that thugs invaded INEC CVR centre situated at St. Bridget Catholic Church, ljesha, in Surulere, and catered away INEC enrollment machines.

    Hundeyin, however, said that Police got information about the presence of some INEC officials in a church, stressing that the DPO, police division in Ijeshatedo, swung into action and brought the INEC officials and materials to the station.

    He said the DPO decided to bring the officials and others around to the station, because the church was not conducive for such investigation, to avoid break down of law and order.

    The spokesman noted that after the DPO’s  findings, there was a mix-up of address location and he requested the INEC officials to move to the correct address.

    Hundeyin pointed out that the police carried INEC materials and officials out of the church, not hoodlums as being  speculated on  social media.

    “The INEC officials were assigned to Imam Thani Street, by House No. 9A for the exercise.

    They were, however, found within the church premises.

    Residents raised concerns and informed the police.

    “Preliminary findings show that a resident of the area who volunteered to transport the officials from their office to the center,  was responsible for the mix-up, deliberate or not, further investigation will reveal.

    “Meanwhile, the officials were immediately released to proceed to the correct center to continue their assignment,” he said.
