Nigeria: Atcon Membership Reaches 93 in 2012

Lagos — The Association of Telecoms Companies of Nigeria has said that its current registered member companies now stood at 93 as at the end of 2012.

ATCON's Executive Secretary, Mr. Jibola Alude, said that the membership strength of the association as at August, last year was 85 but the coming onboard of new eight member companies at the close of work in 2012 made it 93.

He listed the new eight companies to include Supdate Holdings Limited, Danimex Nigeria Limited, Mikado Communications Limited, Pop Broadband Limited, Cobranet Limited, Basnik Telecom Limited, Anchore Telecom Nigeria Limited and Oxygen Broadband Network Limited.

According to him, there is need for ATCON members to leverage on the association online platform to disseminate information about their products and services in 2013 and beyond.

On the activities of the association in the new year, Olude said that most ATCON members did not make available to the secretariat news of their businesses which could be circulated by ATCON news to hundreds of thousands of key industry contacts in the association's data base.

"The few of member-companies that regularly send news materials for publication in the online weekly have many testimonies to share. Some of them had been sending appreciation letters to the secretariat as a result of the marketing contacts they make through the online publication of the association," he said.

He stated that the news items published by their platform were further re-published by national dailies that regularly source industry news, especially news related to their members from the online publication.
