Users can buy any food item, from anywhere around them, so long said food item is listed on the network.

Hojah is a mobile app that allows users buy any kind of food item from stores in their immediate location, about 2 km out, and have it delivered to where they are.

Every kind of food item ranging from raw chicken wings, pounded yam from nearby mama put, to light dessert and a bottle of Coke.

That, at least, is the general idea according to TechCabal. The app launched in Ilorin, North-central Nigeria, earlier this month and its services are currently limited to the city.

According to reports, Hojah is designed by the the Ilorin-based software company, ITvessel lead by Dare Adebayo, the company CEO.

The company also told TechCabal that “Hojah app is a revolutionary mobile application the world is eagerly expecting.”

Users can buy any food item, from anywhere around them, so long said food item is listed on the network. The proposition lies in the app interfacing between street and corner stores wherefore users can make purchases right from their phones and have it delivered to their houses or anywhere else they might be. It gives shopping a certain hyper-local vibe to it.

The developers also told TechCabal that the order fulfil time is 10 minutes or less, which kinda makes sense because stores are expected to sell within a 2-kilometer radius of the delivery point.

Using GoogleMaps API, Hojah allows users buy from the merchants closest to them. Hojah’s inventory feature, allows sellers track sales and generate periodic sales report.

“Our plan is to be in the FCT and 11 other states in  Nigeria [by] July 19, 2015.” says the company CEO, Adebayo.
