CN: What’s the story behind Noxiae and what inspired the name?

Noxiae is Latin for “lodge”. The idea was conceived while researching the Nigerian hospitality sector. I spent most

at university brainstorming on solutions to basic Nigerian problems. By the time I graduated and attended to my youth service, I had done a lot of intense research because I knew it was about time to change the world.

I found a niche in the sector which I personally thought was a problem that ought to be solved immediately for the Nigerian people: a reliable, unbiased, incorruptible platform that features hotels properly vetted, thoroughly reviewed, and not found wanting as regards quality hotel standards, good security, proper customer service, and transparency. A platform that serves the Nigerian people and visiting tourists with expert trip advisory services in booking not just the best hotel but the right hotel. This was the basic unique idea and how was born.

“To lead people in the right direction through accurate reviews.”

— Godwin
