Local Nokia partners drive away with rewards

31 December 2013, 12:17Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - Nokia, arguably the smartphone maker with the largest market share in the country, has rewarded two local partners with exotic cars for enhancing the growth of the brand.

The two partners, Emeka Oguchi, Managing Director, Pointek Limited and Ifechukwu Amobi, Director, Broa were handed a Ford Escape Jeep and Kia Sportage Jeep for surpassing their sales targets in 2013.

The duo was selected through the Nokia Incentives for Wholesalers’ Scheme, which the Finnish firm organized to identify and reward outstanding wholesalers in Nigeria.

At the prize presentation in Lagos, Emmanuel Ossai, General Retail Manager, Nokia West and Central Africa, noted that both winners were being rewarded for achieving their targets in the year 2013 and also ensuring the delivery of Nokia products in retail stores.

“We introduced the Nokia Incentives for Wholesalers Scheme in order to reward our wholesale partners for their efforts in contributing to the growth and success of Nokia’s business in Nigeria. This has also given us the opportunity to give back to them and appreciate their efforts in getting our products to the end users,” he said.

“It has been a very interesting year and we could not have come this far without our wholesale partners who have contributed immensely to the success of the Nokia brand in the year 2013. We use this means to say Thank You and also encourage them to do better in the coming year,” he added.

Nokia has an estimated marker share of more than 40 percent in Nigeria.
