Etisalat Nigeria recorded 13 per cent growth in commercial performance in the first quarter of this year from the fourth quarter of 2013 on the back of record sales, Matthew Willsher, acting chief executive officer, has announced.
Willsher said Etisalat, which has almost 19 million subscribers in Nigeria representing a market share of 14 per cent, was continuing to register commercial successes and milestones.
We started the year on a good note with sales in Q1 2014 leaping to an all-time high. We expect the next quarter to be even better,” he said.
“Our record breaking monthly subscriber additions and revenues reflect the loyalty of our existing subscribers and attraction to new customers.

“Etisalat remains fully committed to executing its business strategies with the help of a high-performing team of dedicated, hardworking employees. This is a strategic business decision as we continue to match our structure and quality of delivery with our customers’ expectations which is what makes customers happy and our business successful,” he said.
