According to the Chief Executive Officer, Jeremiah Ajilore Ubuy Nigeria was founded to limit the struggle associated with unemployment in the country and to help Nigerians especially the youths earn a good living, even while they are not gainfully employed and also help Nigerians get their daily tasks done without having stress and difficulty getting the right hands or falling victims of fraud.

In order to ensure the safety of its customers and pros, Ubuy Nigeria has a strict verification process. There is a 99% insurance that users can not be taken advantage of by the other party.
The mobile app is readily available on the playstore and can be used by only customers. With the Mobile app, customers can; search for local professionals within their vicinity, post their tasks/projects, view portfolios of potential pros they want to hire and document their transaction details for future references.
On the website, pros and customers can set up their accounts, customers can post their task and pros can bid for tasks/projects. Once a job is completed customers get to rate the performance of the pros. Ratings help to improve pros status and move them up the bar. This gives the pros more visibility and builds trust for the pro.

The U point can then be traded for different gift items like; Movie tickets, Meal tickets, Store coupons, Gift cards, Data subscriptions, etc. With 1000 U points, users stand a chance to win a 100,000 naira cash price.
