To commemorate its 20th anniversary celebrations, MTN Nigeria Plc will dole out 20 brand new Honda HRVs to its subscribers in appreciation for their loyalty over these decades.
In addition, the network provider said it will also be giving free airtime and data to all its customers – 68.9 million subscribers to receive 200MB of data, and their first call of the day will be free for up to five minutes.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO), MTN Nigeria, Karl Toriola, was quoted in a statement in Lagos, as saying: “Ours has been a classic case of ‘together in progress,’ and we are thankful to all Nigerians for standing by us and helping us get to this milestone.
“Indeed, anything we’ve achieved over the past 20 years is due to the support and faith of our customers – the people who sustain our network, the government and regulators who have been guides and allies in driving sector growth, all the contractors and partners who have worked by our side, and the thousands of investors who hold our stock.
Ours has been a classic case of ‘together in progress,’ and we are thankful to all Nigerians for standing by us and helping us get to this milestone.
“Finally, I must especially appreciate the people who helped shape our journey – MTN Nigeria’s Board of Directors and our staff, past and present; and reiterate our unwavering commitment to the advancement of this great nation, which we have humbly contributed to.”
This announcement follows anniversary plans previously published with MTN’s 2021 half-year results in July. These include a commitment to participate in the restoration and rehabilitation of the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway through the Federal Government’s Road Infrastructure Tax Credit (RITC) Scheme, and to initiate plans for the construction of a purpose-built, state of the art Head Office, in Lagos. The company had also restated its plans to sell down 14% of MTN shares to over two million Nigerian retail investors.
