The Speakeezee stores are designed to be a one-stop-shop for the acquisition, repair and maintenance of quality mobile phones and accessories with a customer centric focus aimed at achieving 100 per cent customer satisfaction.

We are taking mobile retail business to a level of excellence,” he said.

“The decision to develop Speakeezee retail brand with PNN is based on the fact that the management of PNN has shown an understanding of what the Speakeezee brand stands for and what the expectation of Speakeezee clients are. We believe that the synergy with PNN will further enable Speakeezee deliver our excellent value to the Nigerian public who have consistently yearned for quality and independent service offerings.”
