Etisalat Nigeria has been named the Best Company in Partnership for Development, at the annual Social Enterprise Reports and Awards (SERAs) for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) contributions.
The event, which was held in Lagos, was dedicated to honour the most outstanding efforts in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by deserving organisations that are committed to giving back to the society.
Enitan Denloye, Director, Brands and Communication at Etisalat, noted that Etisalat’s commitment to providing innovative solutions for its customers underpins its CSR activities, which are critically assessed to ensure sustainability.
