Airtel Nigeria says WhatsApp to youths

9 Apr 2013

Olu Akanmu, the chief marketing officer of Airtel Nigeria, has announced new pre-paid packages of unlimited access to ‘WhatsApp’ instant messaging services, aimed at the youth segment, with no deductions from the user’s data bundle or airtime balance. Alternatively, customers who activate data bundles of 200MB or more can also enjoy unlimited access to WhatsApp without having to pay anything for the value added service. Akanmu declared: ‘Coming at a time when we are about to start mobile number portability in Nigeria, and with our robust 3.75G broadband spread over 180 cities across the country, our customers have just been handed another winner in our collection of bespoke data services through WhatsApp. We shall continue to push harder to realise our vision of becoming the most loved brand in the daily lives of Nigerians.’
