SystemSpecs, Africa’s software and financial technology behemoth, is celebrating its 30th anniversary and has expanded its operations by establishing two subsidiaries: SystemSpecs Technology Services Limited (STSL) and Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL) (RPSL).
The organization also announced the appointment of Dr. Ernest Ndukwe, former Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission and Chairman of MTN Nigeria, as Chairman, succeeding Nigeria’s former Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Dr. Christopher Kolade. Kolade has retired after 15 years of exceptional growth at the helm of the company.
To commemorate this occasion, SystemSpecs has launched a year-long initiative that includes the 30th Founders’ Day commemoration, the SystemSpecs Graduate Internship Programme, an awareness health walk, an anniversary gala, a special Children’s Day essay competition, and a summer coding boot camp.
These announcements were made at a recent event to commemorate the company’s 30th year of serving individuals, organizations, and governments in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.
The company will now operate as three distinct entities: a holding company, SystemSpecs Holdings Limited, and two subsidiaries, Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL), which focuses on payment and affiliated services, and SystemSpecs Technology Services Limited (STSL), which focuses on a wide range of technology solutions and services.
Demola Igbalajobi has been named Managing Director of SystemSpecs Technology Services Limited, while Demi Atanda has been named Managing Director of Remita Payment Services Limited.
According to John Obaro, Group Managing Director of SystemSpecs, the expansion is in line with the company’s vision of deepening its capacity to meet the technology needs of a broader market.
“We are pleased with how much we have been able to contribute to the transformation of Africa’s financial and human capital technology ecosystems, particularly through Remita, our integrated payment and collections solution, HumanManager, our comprehensive payroll and HR management solution, and Paylink, our ecommerce platform.”
“In these thirty years, we’ve created solutions that have changed people’s lives and put Nigeria on the map of global technology.” We have developed a new generation of Nigerian software talent and enabled private and public sector organizations of all sizes to manage their people, finances, payments, and collections more effectively.”
He thanked everyone who had contributed to the firm’s success thus far, especially its employees and customers.
After 30 years of operations in Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria, SystemSpecs is well positioned to expand its reach across the African continent and beyond, introduce new solutions, and broaden the scope of the group’s operations.
