Another feather has been added to the cap of Africa’s pioneer composite e-commerce outfit, Yudala after the company emerged the e-commerce company of the year at the prestigious Nigerian Telecom Awards held at the Shell Hall, Muson Centre on Saturday July 16th, beating off competition from a very strong field which included the likes of Konga, Jumia, Payporte, 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.
Founder/Vice President, Yudala, Prince Nnamdi Ekeh, 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 impacts we have made in the e-commerce sector. This award is 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 have worked 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.”
Within a year of its 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. This is in addition to a slew of innovative and exciting promotions through which it has expanded the offerings and given the consumer more value-added options.
