That are typically not available in a nigerian context. Or maybe were not registered properly. Were kind of creating this avenue. This transparent supply chain four that improvement on access of medications. We are helping to reduce the cost of medications because by having really great service that hospitals and pharmacies anywhere in the country and sign a- and actually can purchase medications or consumables from our platform. And we can help them. Manage their medication. Needs in a win. Have you know some crucial information around where these medications are located across the country and also where they're needed and that allows you to that aggregation power allows you to drop prices and be transparent about your prices which then allows hospitals to purchase a reduce costs on medication purchases. Not only from the price point of the medication itself. But also all the investment that goes in their individual operation to procuring those medication going onto the market or going out to pick up medications the day throughout the day or not being able to really vet their prices against others and of course the quality of the medications started to increase. When you're able to to have better pricing so it may be. I was going to pick a tier three medication. Maybe an unbranded generic. Maybe because i see better pricing on with men's i might be able to get a branded generic or maybe even a tier one medication. That's gone through that. Rnd process and you know has been formulated in a really good way for whatever. The ailment might be a better medication at a better cost. Or you know you can actually We actually have about seven various layers of quality control on checks and balances that go through our platform or that medications go through when they go through our platform so we also just in the process of moving medications from point. Eight point be are improving equality of medications that ended up getting to our end user so this is just an example of how a using technology and really data analytics which a lot of people don't talk knockabout.

Now we're able to kind of drop prices in make medication more accessible to the average hospital pharmacy. Which of course means that. The patients into now has better options. As far as medications we recently started shipping out across the country in. So we're we're starting to get orders from hospitals or hospitals mostly in clinics that are in a more rural areas of the country. And so you know. They're getting access to medications. That a typically would have been a little bit harder for them to get access to and so. This is how you can use technology to really democratize in medication distribution which in turn improves. The overall healthcare outcomes for a country like nigeria. Creating this network effect. Because guess what you know. When we first started a lot of our hospitals were completely on paper nothing was digital and then you know we started seeing them starting to adapt excel just great and then we started seeing people talking about. Okay i'm putting. Em are systems in place in things like that and so now it's not even just their medications because remember. They have to get their medications every day. So they're seeing technology improves the way. They're getting medications. But then they're realizing the benefit of taking that same concept to other parts of the business like managing patients or in a working with insurance companies etc. That makes it even easier for them to do their jobs too. So overall the digitization of house care whether it's telemedicine or company like med sass or by neom our company is just going to make it easier and more accessible for the average african to to get better quality healthcare.

"Content across africa. What sort of baseline numbers over. The knicks shortwhile. Do you need to land in order to to make this business model work in this year. Were or hoping to get to five million monthly active users by the end of the year. But that's sort of an arbitrary number four in that place will be in great position for this business to work. That number could be twenty million depending on the content that were able to publish and push and the speed at which were able to do that. And i think that's just a fraction of the people who are on line on the continent already thursday. There's a huge opportunity here and we kind of think it's ours to lose and so for me there's a there's a question around the universal appeal of say what you call the content you're creating for african uses to to entertain themselves with inherent to impactful content. Anyway i think but especially so in. Africa is solving culture and language. And i wonder if you don't have an additional burden and relative to say massive international titles that you know benefit from quote unquote universal first world culture. You don't have this additional burden to sort of take the you're offering across. What fifty four countries. Or whatever you know to. What extent do we need to localise content and make it really relevant. I think the thing about games. Is there something kind of automatically universal candy. Crush is candy crush. If you're playing it in southeast asia or you're playing in la or you're playing in wherever it's a match three game and that doesn't lead to be localized depending on where you are. There's something just kind of human about wanting to make gems or fruits explode and so that's the kind of the one of the reasons why games is also. We decided to start with. It is because it's actually pretty easily both adopted but also adoptable we actually started with what is probably a very difficult concept to localize which was trivia reside trivia. Game people love and have played. Off-line for a you know as long as probably humans have existed right. We were constantly in competition with each other around knowledge and we saw some really interesting. Examples of trivia apps going viral in the us europe china india and south america and didn't see a really exciting one on the continent so gary trivia was our for sap and that requires a lot of localization. I've been into africa now for nearly eight years. And there's a very popular trivia game here called thirty seconds. Love meghan how delay. It's like half the half. The questions are about cricket or rugby. And i am completely at a loss right. But what we've done we've carry for trivia is we worked with local writers and this is the great thing about kind of where we are in the in the gig economy and what's available to us. We we put up job posts. And we've got in you know at this point probably a hundred different freelance writers to submit questions. The content itself is coming from our user base right. These are young in the case. When we launched a nigeria. The these young nigerians were writing questions that made sense. Nigeria right. there are about ninety million business icons universities food language culture. We launched in kenya. We hired kenyan freelance writers and now we invite our users to submit questions so there's a way of yes there's a burden i think there's really creative low cost ways to overcome it and then more largely i think games don't need to be localized with the same like the hurdle to localize isn't as high as day. Tv movies or music if we were trying to be a game studio and that's kind of all we had aspired to be. We might have a bit more sort of business. Model risk associated really their concept of becoming a publisher is that we're not sort of beholden to creating hits in the same way. You might be if you if you're just trying to turn out games every year right in hopes that one is going to be your your candy crush or your farmville. What we're really trying to do is understand in serve consumers i and so what what does that mean is understand the type of marketing messaging that get somebody to download application. Give them the payments infrastructure to be able to transact seamlessly plug into various social communities whether they're online or importantly really importantly offline so that you can drive adoption of different products and services. And whether that's you know games as we started outweigh or other sorts of digital content that we hope to publish. That's really kind of area where we're trying to play and that means that will you know will work with app developers. Maybe it's not a game. Maybe it's like you have a guy in kenya or team in kenya. That's bill an awesome dating app. And they've like a really cool concept it's like really relevant to sort of cultural norms than we think about dating but have no pathway to scale or monetize that application more most likely because they don't have the resources that's where carrie first wants to play is basically going and finding awesome content being produced here or elsewhere in saying let us help you market and monetize this across the continent. We think there's really exciting consumer base. We think there's really suppressed demand for for mobile content and we're the ones to kind of get into the hands are users and with this community.

"Happened has opened a judicial panel acquired. But that's a story for another day. The core is. This is a great trae similar to my findings stats. Nigeria's of national security is so politically tainted that there's perhaps the limits to the to physical violence that the government would miss out against citizens organized police force to crush any sorts of political opposition. Or any sort of headway and sort of disturbances to the stability of the central regime. The leckie massacres. is actually a product of this another Where the government remains wholly focused control of political power in the center but delegates with a very freehand the the fighter repression pop any political dissent to specialized units will get the army would apiece force who accountable to anyone domestically or internationally are commit. Violence insists however depletes burger. Listened british colonial rule. So we're ause unit police squidward where them all politically align to Give him artie or they just politically aligned to just funding from the central government. They are allegiance to whoever is in power that point in time until the niger. Police force before independence owed. Its allegiance to the british governor. General at the time and insolence switch to the prime minister and said these forces are up don't necessarily have any political leanings towards parties as long as a party can take over control of the center. Their allegiance is to the continuation of the units fire funding arm and proximity to power. I constitutionally does Is their remedy for for this. Because obviously i mean i'm telling you this because constitutionally we have the almost identical problems in iraq the difference being that we don't have a specialized unit. The infants is that we have so Constitution that allows you know these leeway for for certain abuses of power to happen and so. Do you think that there is a remedy for this or do you think that is something. That's become too ingrained in the political sphere. In in in nigeria. Bring up the constitution a because niger tying has had four major revisions to its constitution. And at this point in time we're acting another nineteen thousand nine of metro constitution saddam. Last time we had an overhaul the interesting nigeria's constitution is that through the strings of military dictatorships firm nineteen sixty six all the way to nineteen ninety eight these dictatorships came in an either suspended the constitution completely or so to be bright entire constitution points in history where the supreme sovereign power was a federal military governed military council or prime minister or president of these institutions in their pollution actually entrenched and enshrined the interests of those parties though were able to violently take over political power and so when we talk about international talk about human rights and the rights of peaceful assembly and rights to political asian in nigerian is override in provision privatized stability of prioritize mitigating or minimizing sort of disruption to the country and so these provisions were actually introduced by military declarations miniature acts in the ridge leaders and a lot of these things have actually been passed into the nights nights so looking for remedies to this fisk repression of political dissent within the nigerian constitution. Itself is actually a futile exercise. However negeria is state parties cape a lot of international treaties agreements exist in a world where there's north instead become crystallized over time that meant to protect human rights in the individual agreement injury as pocket to is the room that which essentially establishes international criminal prosecution and protects the rights of citizens especially citizens so they're protesting peacefully. Now even let me difficult to propose political reform domestically. Niger is still constrained. But provision up to robes Until going into a peaceful protests up with meditated aid of shooting thou protesters with live ammunition goes against his grave violation of the room. Statistics that is why people have cold for national criminal investigation again. Like the nigerian constitution. International criminal investigation isn't something that can effectively deterred a government carrying them for precipice titties. As matter of fact is carried out much more grievous violations of the In recent years heard a buckle haram the terror deterrent organization in northeastern major when butter haram disintegrated into a full blown insurgency. Many parts of northeast injury puts under emergency legislation under state's emergency and according to amnesty international Lot of society organizations in humanitarian organisations the ground that would bring violations carried out against human rights of not bystanders sympathizers.

It doesn't seem like a big deal those award Insurgency but why is it permitted that a government can some early execute in flattened villages that they suspect of being sympathetic to the political aim. Cement insurgent group take an active potent insurgency. And if there's a suspicion perhaps people have the right look. Perhaps they do have the rights to face. You process it. The rights to be investigated through judicial system. It shouldn't be that the states can go in there and carry out. Extra-judicial killings international criminal court at least since the twenty fifteen almost once every year has had a reason to open preliminary investigations into the niger government but the thing about international criminal court is that the principle of complementarity this principle states.
