Etisalat eyes growth in Nigeria

Etisalat has said it is targeting subscriber growth of 45% in Nigeria next year by luring customers from its three larger rivals, Bloomberg has reported. The UAE telecoms operator is aiming to have 20 million active subscribers by the end of next year, from about 13.8 million now, said Steven Evans, chief executive officer of the Nigerian unit. Etisalat, which has operated in Nigeria since October 2008, is looking to increase its customer share in Africa's most populous nation of more than 160 million people, to become the third, or second-largest phone operator, he said.
