“At OkHi, we believe a physical address is a human right. It empowers a person to prove where they live so that

they can open a bank account, get a delivery to their door and trust an ambulance to find them. OkHi’s goal in

Nigeria is to demonstrate to the world how a smart addressing system should work. Once we’ve achieved that, we

intend to scale to every other emerging market.” said Timbo Drayson, founder and CEO, OkHi.
