Yudala, Africa’s pioneer composite e-commerce outfit, has added another feather to its hat having emerged as e-commerce company of the year at the Nigerian Telecom Awards held in Lagos recently, beating off competition from a very strong field which included the likes of Konga, Jumia, Payporte, among others.

The event which featured award presentations in other categories had a roll-call of personalities and key players from the Nigerian ICT eco-system in attendance, including Adebayo Shittu, Minister of Communication; Umar Dambatta, Executive Vice Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC); Vincent Olatunji, Ag. Chief Executive Officer, Nigeria Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA); Segun Ogunsanya, Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Nigeria among others.

The award is in recognition of Yudala’s ground-breaking entry into the Nigerian e-commerce sector and exceptional innovative strategies through which it has raised the standards in the industry.

Nnamdi Ekeh, Founder/Vice President, Yudala, who received the award on behalf of the company dedicated the award to staff who have worked diligently hard in making the Yudala revolution a reality. He also attributed the recognition to customers who have kept faith with the Yudala brand, especially those who believed in the Yudala dream from its inception.

“I am delighted because this recognition goes a long way to justify the huge impact we have made in the e-commerce sector. This award is a fitting reward for all the hard work and winning strategies we have put in to make the Yudala brand one to look out for.

“I dedicate this award to all staff of Yudala who work so hard to make the dream a reality. Special dedication also goes to our customers: those who have kept faith with the Yudala brand from day one as well as the many others who later became convinced by our world class service and have remained ardent customers ever since,” Ekeh said.

Within a year of entry into the keenly-competitive e-commerce sector, Yudala has successfully raised the standards with a series of pioneering feats including the launch of same day delivery and the first recorded drone delivery in the e-commerce world.
